The Blugold Football team is an integral part of the UW-Eau Claire community as one of the oldest teams. Our athletes follow the UW-Eau Claire mission of excellence to the highest standard. We are also excited about our new head coach, Rob Erickson. Coach Erickson was recently hired as head coach and brings a wealth of championship-caliber experience, having worked at South Dakota State, UW-Whitewater, and UW-Platteville. We are thrilled to have him as part of the Blugold family.
Coach Erickson has hit the ground running and has identified the program's biggest areas of need. Recruiting is crucial in college football, and upgrading the current recruiting software will cost about $4,000.
In addition, the team will have four overnight trips next year, which is more than usual and will take a big chunk out of the budget. It is essential for us to travel to face tough competitors as we build to become a top program. Your generous support will play a crucial role in the maintenance and growth of UW-Eau Claire Football.
Your gift can be doubled! Erik Meyer '02 is matching all donations to football dollar-for-dollar up to $1,500.
Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you cheering us on this Fall. We are grateful for every student-athlete, coach, athletic trainer, administrator, and fan of Blugold Football and can’t wait to see what our future has in store for us. Go Blugolds!
