Nearly 100 alumni and friends joined us on Saturday evening in the Fr. Lloyd George, S.J., Lounge in Wheeler Hall to honor former football coach Tracy Mehr. Though only at Blakefield for five seasons in the late '50s & early '60s, Coach Mehr presided over some of Loyola’s most formidable teams, including an undefeated squad in 1960.
This September will mark the 60th anniversary of Mehr’s first season at Loyola, and Loyola was proud to welcome him and his family to celebrate his indelible impact on our community. Guest speakers included President Anthony Day, Bill Armstrong ’58 (Coach Mehr’s first team captain), Head Football Coach Anthony Zehyoue, and Coach Mehr’s grandson, Jack. Many of his former players were in attendance as well.
