@Giants @AlbrightCollege @Albright_FB April 27


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Albright College

Location: Reading PA

Located in Reading PA is a college that is over 160 years old. Albright College is the oldest institution of higher learning in Berks County and is located on a 118-acre suburban campus nestled at the foot of Mount Penn.

The College dates its beginning to the founding of Union Seminary in 1856. The present Albright College was formed by a series of mergers with other institutions of higher learning founded in the 19th century by the Evangelical Association and the United Evangelical Church. Union and Schuylkill Seminaries were not theological seminaries, but were three-year collegiate institutes.

Albright Collegiate Institute was founded in 1895 and became Albright College in 1898. Union Seminary, founded in 1856 and rechartered as Central Pennsylvania College in 1887, merged with Albright College in 1902.  Schuylkill Seminary, founded in 1881, became Schuylkill College in 1923 and merged with Albright College in 1929.  With the merger, Albright moved from its campus in Myerstown, Pa., to Schuylkill College’s location on the present Albright campus.

One former Albright College was William Earl Potteiger who was an American football, baseball, and basketball player and coach

Potteiger was player-coach for the New York Giants when they won their first National Football League championship in 1927. He attended both Albright and Ursinus.

Not sure that any NFL draft choices will come from Albright in 2017 but they do have a former student in Earl Potteiger with a 1927 NFL Championship. Current Albright College Head Football  Coach John Marzka has gone 18-5 over the last two seasons so he has good players.
