Gardner-Webb has seen 12 of its former players go on to sign free agent contracts or be drafted by National Football League teams. Former Bulldog Gabe Wilkins (pictured) won a Super Bowl with Green Bay in 1996, then signed a lucrative, four-year, $21 million contract with San Francisco in 1998. GWU has seen five players sign or be drafted since 2003, including offensive guard Corey O’Daniel – who signed a deal with the Washington Redskins prior to the start of training camp in 2011.

Gardner-Webb’s current coaching staff has plenty of experience with the NFL, both as players and with team coaching internships. Head Coach Ron Dickerson, Jr., (pictured above) spent 1993-1994 as a running back and kick returner with the Chiefs, and later interned with Tampa Bay. Running game coordinator Dwayne Ledford (pictured right) spent seven years as a player with San Fransisco, Jacksonville, Cleveland and New Orleans and Carolina. Defensive line coach Ron Dickerson, Sr., was a seventh round draft pick in 1971 by the Dolphins, and has coached nearly 30 players who have gone on to the National Football League.

RON DICKERSON, JR. Head Coach University of Arkansas ‘ 96 First Season

Ron Dickerson, Jr., is in his first year as head coach of the Gardner-Webb University football program. He was introduced during a press conference on January 26, 2011. Dickerson, 39, comes to Boiling Springs after spending the past three seasons as receivers coach at Ole Miss – playing a key role in the development of current NFL players Mike Wallace (Pittsburgh Steelers), Dexter McCluster (Kansas City Chiefs) and Shay Hodge (Cincinnati Bengals). All three earned All-SEC honors with Dickerson’s guidance, and Wallace has established himself as one of the top receivers in the National Football League – and played for the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011. During his three seasons with the Rebels, Dickerson helped one of his mentors, Houston Nutt, direct the squad to a pair of top-20 finishes, two nine-win seasons and consecutive wins in the AT&T Cotton Bowl – knocking off No. 8 Texas Tech following the 2008 season and No. 21 Oklahoma State the following year. In 2008, Ole Miss posted key wins over the previous two seasons’ national champions – beating No. 4 Florida and No. 18 LSU on the road. Dickerson is the first African-American head coach in the Big South Conference’s football history. He is the eighth head coach in 41 seasons of senior college football at Gardner-Webb. The Boley, Okla., native replaces Steve Patton, who spent 14 seasons with the Runnin’ Bulldogs. Prior to Ole Miss, Dickerson spent three seasons at Louisiana-Monroe (2005-2007) and three seasons at FCS member Missouri State (2002-2004). With ULM, he coached Calvin Dawson to first-team All-Sun Belt honors and a 1,000-yard season. At Missouri State, he saw pupil Cody Pratt post back-toback 1,000-yard seasons. Dickerson also spent time as an assistant coach at Alabama State (1997-1999) and Temple (1996-1997) and served as head coach at Fairfield High in Birmingham, Ala., during the 2000 season. In the professional ranks, Dickerson picked up valuable experience as an intern in 2001 under Coach Tony Dungy in Tampa Bay and as the running backs and special teams coach for the XFL’s Las Vegas Outlaws in 2000. He coached future Carolina Panther Rod Smart during his time with the Outlaws.

Dickerson’s success as a coach should not come as a surprise, as he excelled on the gridiron at the game’s highest levels as a player. He played in 15 games over two seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs, seeing his most extensive time as a kick returner – averaging 22 yards per return on 32 kickoffs during that time. Dickerson also spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles (1995) and the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe (1996-1997). Dickerson starred at the University of Arkansas from 1989-1992, starting his career at running back before transitioning to receiver. He led the Razorbacks in receptions in 1991 and 1992 and finished his career with 2,355 all-purpose yards. His kickoff return ability still has Dickerson squarely in the Arkansas record books, with his average of 25.0 yards on 31 career returns ranking third in school history. Dickerson also lettered for the Razorbacks’ 1990 NCAA Indoor National Championship Track & Field squad as a jumper. He graduated in 1996 with a degree in Public and Commerical Recreation from Arkansas. Dickerson earned All-America honors in both football and track at State College (Pa.) High, and was ranked as one of the nation’s top 50 overall prospects on the gridiron and as one of the most sought after running backs in the nation in the Class of 1989. Football is a family affair for Dickerson. His father, Ron Dickerson, Sr., is woven deeply into the historic fabric of the game, having spent time as a reserve defensive back with the Miami Dolphins following a standout career at Kansas State. The elder Dickerson became the first African-American head coach in Division I-A when he took over at Temple in 1992. In addition to his coaching duties, the younger Dickerson is the founder and president of R.U.N.T – Recognizing Underdeveloped Natural Talents, a youth organization designed to improve opportunities for young people in and out of athletics. Dickerson and his wife, Kendreah, have two daughters, Kristen and Ashten, and a son, Keegan.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING Dexter McCluster, Kansas City Chiefs “If I could say one thing about Coach Dickerson it would be that he was not only my coach, but my friend. He treated me like his son. There are only a few people in my life that I can say that about. Coach D was always there for me and still is.”

Jim Caldwell, Head Coach, Indianapolis Colts “Ron is a man of integrity, character and strong Christian convictions. I have had the pleasure of watching him mature as a young man, excel as a collegiate student-athlete and flourish as a husband, father and coach. He has always been a natural leader and I am certain that Gardner-Webb student athletes will benefit greatly from his guidance.”

Houston Nutt, Head Coach, Ole Miss “I think Gardner-Webb hit a homerun today. They have a young man that is going to be a difference maker in the lives of young people. He is a fine Christian father, with a beautiful family, a family that will be involved in the community and a family that will be present in the eyes of an 18, 19, or 20-year old man. These young men are going to be better people, citizens, and football players after going through three, four or five years with Ron Dickerson, Jr. He is a man of great work ethic, a man of character, and he will be an outstanding leader.”

Shay Hodge, Cincinnati Bengals “I loved having Coach Dickerson as my coach at Ole Miss. He was not only a great coach but also like a dad to me. He taught me on the chalkboard, and also how to deal with the struggles of everyday life. He is a hard worker and a great leader.”

Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers “Coach D helped make me a better person and player. He is a great motivator. He really cares for his players. He showed me the way and I loved playing for him.”

TONY PIERCE Defensive Coordinator / Secondary Gettysburg College ‘83 First Year

Tony Pierce is in his first season at Gardner-Webb University as the program’s defensive coordinator, and will also coach the secondary for the Runnin’ Bulldogs. The well-respected Pierce has over 25 years of coaching experience under his belt, including 19 in college football. His experience in the Football Bowl Subdivision includes time at BCS programs Georgia, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Pittsburgh – and he has served as an NFL intern coach with the Arizona Cardinals. His postseason experience is extensive, having coached on staffs for teams in the CarQuest Bowl, Insight.com Bowl and Music City Bowl – as well as a pair of SWAC championship games. Pierce spent the past two seasons in the Football Championship Subdivision, coaching in 2010 at Valparaiso and in 2009 at Tennessee State. During his time at Tennessee State, Pierce coached running backs and served as the Tigers’ special teams coordinator, helping that squad to a win over No. 13 Eastern Illinois in the season finale. Pierce’s reputation as a strong defensive coordinator was cemented during an ultra-successful tenure at Alabama State, where he served for six seasons. His final defense finished ranked No. 19 nationally in 2008, allowing only 301.9 yards per game. Alabama State also finished ranked No. 12 nationally in fewest first downs allowed, No. 14 in tackles for loss, No. 15 in red zone defense, No. 26 in third down conversion defense and No. 29 against the run. In 2006, Pierce’s defense allowed only 276.2 yards per game and led the SWAC with an opponents’ third down conversion percentage of just 29.2 percent – which ranked seventh in the nation that season. Pierce was named America Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division I-AA Assistant Football Coach of the Year in 2004, a season that his defense helped Alabama State to a 10-2 record and a win over Southern in the SWAC Championship Game. The Hornets ranked ninth nationally against the run (103.0 ypg) 17th in scoring defense (19.0 ppg) and 25th in sacks per game (1.33). Alabama State registered 76 tackles for loss that season as well. Alabama State’s defense forced 34 turnovers in 12 games, which ranked No. 7 among I-AA schools and helped the Hornets rank No. 6 in turnover margin. His defensive unit also ranked 13th nationally in rushing defense in 2003, as Alabama State won eight games during Pierce’s first season with the program. Pierce coached running backs at the University of Georgia from 2001-2002 and served one season as co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Wake Forest under current Indianapolis Colts’ head coach Jim Caldwell in 2000. He spent three seasons as an assistant coach at West Virginia (1997-1999), coaching the Mountaineers’ running backs from 1997-1998 and coaching the secondary in 1999. One of his running backs in Morgantown, Amos Zereoue, was a two-time All-America selection and NFL draft pick. Pierce has also served as an assistant coach at Pittsburgh (1995-96), Delaware State (1994), Bucknell (1990-1992) and St. Peter’s (1986-1987).

DWAYNE LEDFORD Running Game Coordinator / OL East Carolina ‘00 First Year

Dwayne Ledford is in his first season as the offensive line coach and running game coordinator at Gardner-Webb University and brings a wealth of experience on both the college and professional levels to the position. Ledford, who hails from nearby Marion, N.C., joined the Runnin’ Bulldogs in February after spending the 2010 season as the offensive line coach at FCS member Tennessee State. His offensive line cleared the way for a Tigers’ running attack that averaged 190.0 yards per game and scored 17 touchdowns on the ground in 11 games – with TSU improving its offensive production across the board in 2010. Two of Ledford’s offensive linemen, Alex Davis and Gershom Jordan earned second-team All-Ohio Valley Conference honors in 2010 – with Jordan doing so with just one season under Ledford’s tutoring after switching over from defense for his senior season. Ledford spent two seasons as an offensive assistant coach at his alma mater, East Carolina. During his time with the Pirates, Ledford was part of a staff that directed ECU to a pair of nine-win seasons, two Liberty Bowl appearances and back-to-back Conference USA championships. In two seasons, the Pirates posted a combined 14-3 mark in league play. In 2009, East Carolina’s offense ranked 10th nationally in fewest sacks allowed and were ranked No. 9 nationally in turnover margin. Ledford spent the 2007 season as offensive line coach at Raleigh Sanderson (N.C.) High, after serving as tight ends coach for Frankfurt Galaxy of NFL Europe – where he helped the Galaxy to a World Bowl appearance that summer. He served as an intern coach with the offensive line for Frankfurt in 2006. His entrance into the coaching ranks came after a successful playing career at the highest level of football. He spent seven seasons playing in the NFL, suiting up for the San Francisco 49ers (1999-2000, 2003-2004), Jacksonville Jaguars (2000), Carolina Panthers (2001), Cleveland Browns (2005) and New Orleans Saints (2006 preseason). He signed with the 49ers as a free agent in 1999 and made his professional debut one season later. He saw action in eight games with the club during the 2003 season, and made one start. Ledford saw action on both sides of the football during his playing career at East Carolina under head coach Steve Logan. A four-year letterwinner, Ledford helped ECU to a Liberty Bowl title in 1995, and moved into the regular rotation as a sophomore in 1996, playing in all 11 games. He started 11 games on defense in 1997 and finished with 26 total tackles. Ledford made a seamless move to the offensive line prior during spring practice prior to his senior season in 1998, and quickly moved to the top of the depth chart. Ledford started nine games at left tackle during current Jacksonville Jaguars’ quarterback David Garrard’s freshman season, helping the Pirates rank No. 23 nationally in pass efficiency, No. 35 in passing offense and No. 43 in total offense. Ledford was a standout academically as well, earning the program’s Jerry T. Brooks Award in 1998 – an award that honors outstanding academic achievement among football student-athletes at East Carolina. Ledford starred in high school at McDowell (N.C.) High, earning All-Western North Carolina honors from the Asheville Citizen-Times after registering 68 tackles and leading the team in sacks in 1994. He led the Titans in sacks for three seasons total, and was a two-time All-Conference selection. Ledford, who earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports science from East Carolina in 2000, is married to the former Meredith Cunningham of Marion, N.C.

THAD WARD Passing Game Coordinator / WR UCF ‘02 First Year

Thad Ward enters his first season at Gardner-Webb University and will coordinate the passing game as well as tutor the Runnin’ Bulldog receiving corps. Ward spent the past six seasons as an assistant coach at FCS member Western Illinois, where he coached the Leathernecks’ running backs at a high level. In 2010, Ward mentored his sixth 1,000-yard rusher in six seasons, as Western Illinois recorded an eight-win season and advanced to the second round of the Division I playoffs. Running backs Caulton Ray (1,075 yards, nine touchdowns) and Bryce Flowers (804 yards, eight touchdowns) sparked a rushing attack that chewed up 190.7 yards per game – helping the Leathernecks balanced attack average a strong 457.2 yards of total offense, which ranked third nationally but was the top mark among teams who advanced to the playoffs in 2010. An excellent all-around coach, Ward was selected to attend the NCAA Coaches’ Academy in Indianapolis in May 2009 and was then chosen by the Baltimore Ravens as their coaching intern for training camp that same year. In 2008, Ward pupil Herb Donaldson was named Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Year after leading all Division I backs with 162.2 yards per game and 12.0 points per game. Donaldson finished with 1,784 yards on the ground and 21 rushing touchdowns that season – and finished his career for the Leathernecks with three 1,000-yard seasons. Donaldson’s 4,746 career rushing yards rank 25th in the history of NCAA Division I FCS/I-AA football. He was third in the final voting for the 2008 Walter Payton Award, given annually to the top offensive football player in the nation. WIU led the Missouri Valley Football Conference and ranked No. 6 nationally in rushing offense with 251.6 yards per game in 2008, with Ward’s charges combining for 33 rushing touchdowns.

Gardner-Webb ‘03 Ninth Year

Former Bulldog linebacker Travis Cunningham is in his 10th season on the Gardner-Webb coaching staff, and remains in charge of the Bulldogs’ linebackers, traditionally one of the team’s best position groups. Cunningham has helped mold that group into one of the nation’s best, with Marty Patterson earning preseason All-America honors in 2010, and Jeffery Williams and Mario Brown earning spots on several All-America teams as the Gardner-Webb defense has improved over the past three seasons. Williams, Brown and Patterson, have earned All-Big South Conference honors under Cunningham’s watch – and all three have been preseason Big South Defensive Player of the Year once. A young, organized coach with a sound understanding of the game, Cunningham has served his alma mater well. In 2005, he coached the GWU safeties, mentoring All-Big South Conference selection Daniel Cooke, who led the Bulldogs with 99 tackles and four interceptions. Cunningham also coached the team’s linebackers in 2003 and 2004, and spent the 2001-2002 seasons as a student assistant linebackers’ coach when GWU utilized a four-linebacker scheme. During his time with the Bulldog inside linebackers, Cunningham saw Keppy Baucom earn All-Big South honors three times in as many seasons, with Baucom leading the 2004 Bulldogs with 90 total tackles. His 2003 unit, spearheaded by Baucom, Jonathan Little, Adam Wagner and J.P. Weaver, developed into one of the region’s most consistent and effective groups. Under Cunningham’s guidance in 2002, Baucom earned first-team All-Big South honors and was named Big South Freshman of the Year after leading the league’s rookies with 75 total tackles. Cunningham, a native of Knoxville, Tenn., played two seasons at Gardner-Webb, making his mark as a long snapper and as a hard-nosed special teams coverage man. Prior to enrolling at Gardner-Webb, Cunningham was a standout in football and baseball at Powell (Tenn.) High in Knoxville. Cunningham graduated from Gardner-Webb in August, 2003, with an undergraduate degree in Physical Education. He and his wife, the former Kelly King, reside in Boiling Springs.

Kansas State ‘71 First Year

Ron Dickerson, Sr., is in his first season as an assistant coach at Gardner-Webb University. He will coach the defensive line for the Runnin’ Bulldogs in 2011. Dickerson joins the coaching staff of his son, Ron Dickerson, Jr., who is entering his first season in charge of the Runnin’ Bulldogs in 2011. The elder Dickerson comes to GWU after spending the 2010 season as head coach at NAIA member Lambuth (Tenn.) University. Dickerson, Sr., brings a tremendous amount of experience on the defensive side of the football to the program, teaching and developing student-athletes at the highest levels of college football as both a position coach and coordinator. During that time, he has tutored 27 players that have gone on to play in the National Football League. Dickerson has also served as head coach at Temple (1992-1997) and Alabama State (1998-1999). He is a past president of the Black Coaches Association (BCA) and was the first African-American head coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A). His first coaching job came after an injury ended a promising professional career during the 1972 preseason with the Miami Dolphins, a team that went on to a historic, 16-0, season. The Dolphins drafted Dickerson in the seventh round of the 1971 NFL Draft out of Kansas State, where he was a standout cornerback. He coached in the secondary at his alma mater from 1972-1975, before going on to the University of Louisville for three seasons. Dickerson coached the secondary at Pittsburgh from 1978-81 - helping the Panthers to back-to-back 11-1 seasons in 1979 and 1980. The program was squarely in the national championship discussion both seasons. After a year away from the game, Dickerson returned to the sidelines as assistant head coach at Colorado (1982-84) before heading back to his home state to begin a successful career as secondary coach under the legendary Joe Paterno at Penn State. During his time in Happy Valley (1985-90), Dickerson helped the Nittany Lions post a 53-17 record, including a 12-0 mark and a stirring, 14-10, Fiesta Bowl win over Miami (Fla.) to claim the 1987 National Championship. Four of his defensive backs went on to earn All-America honors and seven played in the NFL. Dickerson moved to the Atlantic Coast Conference in 1991, taking over as defensive coordinator at Clemson, where he orchestrated one of the best defensive units in the storied programs’ history in his first season. The 1991 Tigers won the program’s last ACC title with a 9-1 regular season mark. That season, Dickerson’s defense ranked No. 1 nationally against the run (61.0 ypg), No. 4 nationally in total defense and No. 10 in scoring defense. Seven of the top 10 tacklers on that 1991 defense went on to play in the NFL, including Ed McDaniel, Levon Kirkland, Chester McGlockton, Brenston Bucker and Wayne Simmons - with McGlockton and Simmons developing into first round picks. McDaniel, Kirkland and McGlockton each went on to play in the Pro Bowl. In 1992, Dickerson coached future NFL Pro Bowl safety Brian Dawkins, who was a freshman on that team. Dickerson was a three-year letterwinner at Kansas State, and still ranks third on the school’s single-season list with 19 passes defended in 1970. He also ranks among the school’s leaders with 162 career interception return yards (eight career interceptions), and was invited to play in the East-West Shrine Game and the College All-Star Game following his senior season. Dickerson’s head football coach as a four-sport star at Coraopolis (Pa.) High was future NFL head coach Foge Fazio. Dickerson graduated from Kansas State in 1971 with a degree in Physical Education. He and his wife, Jeannie, were married on February 1, 1969. They are the proud parents of two children, Ron, Jr., and Rashawn, and four grandchildren.

Gardner-Webb ‘04 Eighth Season

Former Bulldog Chris Foster enters his eighth season with the GWU coaching staff, and will hit the field for the seventh year as a full-time assistant coach in charge of the Gardner-Webb running backs. Foster is also in charge of monitoring the team’s academic progress throughout the season, and is considered one of the program’s top recruiters on an annual basis. Foster most recently mentored All-Big South running back Patrick Hall, who finished as one of the top scoring backs in Gardner-Webb history. Hall returned from an early injury last season to make a big impact on the GWU running game, and led the Big South with 12 rushing touchdowns two seasons ago. One of the toughest backs to play for Gardner-Webb, Foster saw Jermaine Boston earn first-team All-Big South honors in 2005, the first GWU rusher to do so since Foster in 2002. Boston and classmate George Pressley each finished among the top-12 rushers in GWU history, with Boston edging Foster for sixth on that chart. Two of his 2009 graduates – Peoples and Montgomery – were career 1,000-yard rushers, as was Hall. One of only two multiple CoSIDA Academic All-District selections in GWU football history, Foster spent the 2004 season as a volunteer assistant coach with the team’s running backs. A native of Chesnee, S.C., Foster was a two-time All-Big South Conference choice, earning second-team honors in 2003 after rushing for a career-high 923 yards. A first-team All-Conference choice in 2002, Foster finished his career as the No. 6 rusher in GWU history with 1,883 career yards and 13 career rushing touchdowns – and now stands seventh on that list. Foster graduated in December, 2004, with a degree in Physical Education with a teaching certificate. Foster and his wife, Tiffany, have one daughter, Journei.

San Jose State ‘06 Second Season

Bobby Godinez is entering his second season as an assistant coach with the Gardner-Webb University football program, and will be in charge of the team’s safeties in 2010. He assumed the role of recruiting coordinator in January, 2011, as well for the Runnin’ Bulldogs. Godinez joined the Runnin’ Bulldogs from Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif., where he was named co-defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach in January 2010. Godinez served as the defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach during the 2009 season at Pasadena City College, helping the squad to a No. 2 ranking defensively within the Northern Conference against the pass.

Gardner-Webb ‘71 Second Season

Jim Seacord returns to his alma mater as special teams coordinator in 2011, his second stint on staff with the Runnin’ Bulldogs. Seacord will also coach the team’s tight ends. Seacord spent the past four seasons as an assistant Strength & Conditioning coach at Notre Dame, where he helped train the Fighting Irish football program in addition to heading up the strength program for women’s rowing. The 1971 Gardner-Webb graduate served as the defensive line coach for the Runnin’ Bulldogs in 2006, where he helped develop future NFL draft pick Brian Johnston (Chiefs, 7th round, 2008) and mentored second-team All-Big South Conference end Thurston Lee. Johnston was the Big South’s Defensive Player of the Year that season, and earned FCS All-America honors from the Associated Press and the Football Gazette. Seacord has more than 30 years experience coaching on the high school level in North and South Carolina. He was one of the most respected coaches in the Charlotte, N.C., high school ranks for more than two decades, serving as head coach at South Mecklenburg (N.C.) High from 1979-1985. During that time with the Sabres, he forged a 48-26 mark and led his squad to a 14-0 record and state title in 1981 – developing a team that is still considered one of the best in Mecklenburg County history. Seacord helped develop talentes such as NFL linebacker Roman Phifer and Clemson tailback Stephen Griffin during his time at South Meck. After spending time in the college ranks on Coach Joe Morrison’s staff at South Carolina, Seacord returned to the high school ranks at Wilmington Hoggard (N.C.) High for three seasons (1986-1988) – before finding his way back to Charlotte. Seacord took over at brand new Providence (N.C.) High in 1989 and experienced tremendous success from 1989-2000. During that time he registered 50 wins and led the Panthers to playoff berths in 1993, 1995 and 1997. In 1997, Providence won the league title and finished with a solid 10-2 record. The Charlotte Observer named Seacord its 1997 Coach of the Year. He and his wife, Susan, are the parents of two adult daughters.

DR. FRANK BONNER

Dr. A. Frank Bonner, in his sevenh year as the president of GardnerWebb University, took office on May 2, 2005, and was inaugurated on April 6, 2006. Bonner is no stranger to Gardner-Webb, having been a part of the University family since 1987. A native of Greenville, S.C., Bonner graduated from Furman University in 1969, has a M.A. degree from the University of Georgia and earned a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was a faculty member and Associate Dean at Anderson College in Anderson, S.C., prior to beginning his career in Boiling Springs as Vice President for Academic Affairs. In 1992, Bonner was promoted to provost and senior vice president at Gardner-Webb, a post he held until assuming his current role in 2005. After a comprehensive, national search for the university’s new president, chairman of the presidential search committee and the board of trustees, Frank Beam, said, “We came to the conclusion that we had the most qualified candidate right here at the university.” Bonner succeeded Dr. Frank Campbell, who served Gardner-Webb University as president from October, 2002 until June, 2005. Active in civic life and in the community, Bonner has served on the boards of the United Way, the YMCA, and Communities in Schools, and he serves on the Cleveland County Sports Commission. He is a past chairman of the Cleveland County Chamber, a past president of the Shelby Rotary Club, and a Sunday School teacher and deacon at First Baptist Church in Shelby. Bonner is also a retired Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve.

During Bonner’s time as provost, Gardner-Webb emerged as a vibrant institution for higher learning, officially moving from college to university in 1993. The institution’s academic reputation has steadily improved during Bonner’s time in Boiling Springs, with a tremendous faculty and consistently evolving curriculum. Bonner is married to the former Florence “Flossie” Black of Chester, S.C., also a graduate of Furman University. They are parents of two adult daughters and five grandchildren.

CHUCK BURCH

Gardner-Webb alumnus Chuck Burch is in his 15th year as Vice President for Athletics and his 29th year in athletics administration. The Charlotte, N.C., native spearheaded the Bulldogs move into Division I athletics, which resulted in Gardner-Webb’s addition to the Big South Conference as an associate member for football in 2001, and GWU's move to the Big South as a full member – which became official on July 1, 2008. Burch oversees all athletic operations at Gardner-Webb, including management and supervision of athletic programs, facilities and budgets. During his career at GWU, Burch has overseen across-the-board improvements in athletics facilities and the addition of five new sports since arriving in 1997. A sixth sport, men's swimming, was added in 2007-08. Burch is also responsible for continued improvements in the quality and quantity of Gardner-Webb’s athletics staff – with a number of full-time positions created to assist and enhance the entire department. GWU athletics has seen a steady increase in academic performance since Burch's arrival, and the department has posted a combined GPA above 3.0 in each of the last four academic years. This past year, Gardner-Webb posted its highest finish in the annual Big South Conference Sasser Cup, taking No. 4 in the final standings of the all-sports race. The women’s basketball team captured its first Big South Tournament title, advancing to the first round of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament. Two other teams – women’s soccer and baseball – advanced to the league tournament title game in their respective seasons as well. Gardner-Webb's final year in the Atlantic Sun Conference was fruitful, with several notable wins and the usual high number of strong

academic performances by the Bulldogs' student-athletes. GWU enjoyed its most successful athletics year as a Division I member in 2006-07. Gardner-Webb won its first Atlantic Sun Conference Academic Championship, unseating Belmont University for the title. The Bulldogs also finished third in the men's and women's combined sports standings – a very impressive effort in the race for the inaugural Bill Bibb Trophy. Gardner-Webb's men's soccer team captured the imagination of fans across Cleveland County during its run to the 2006 A-Sun Championship and NCAA Tournament second round. National qualifiers in Track & Field, swimming and wrestling highlighted competitive success for the Bulldogs in 2006-2007. Burch, a graduate of Independence (N.C.) High in Charlotte, and former member of Gardner-Webb’s football and tennis teams, spent 1991-1997 as Director of Athletics at Liberty (Va.) University, and was instrumental in a successful and well run department in Lynchburg as well. He also served Liberty as Associate Director of Athletics (1988-1990), Assistant Director of Athletics (1984-1988), Sports Information Director (1986-1988) and Assistant Director of Sports Information (1982-1984). After graduating from Gardner-Webb in 1979 with a bachelor's degree in Social Science, Burch, 53, earned his master's degree from Eastern Kentucky University in 1982. His wife, Franki, holds a Ph.D. in Health Education from the University of Virginia, and is a member of the faculty at Gardner-Webb. The couple has three children, Travis, a 2009 graduate of Furman University; Danielle, a senior at Brevard (N.C.) College and Amy (17).

GARDNER-WEBB HISTORY

Gardner-Webb University has experienced remarkable growth, perseverance, and maturity. The institution began as a boarding high school and later became a junior college. Today Gardner-Webb is a thriving regional university with growing master’s and doctoral programs. From a movement initiated by the Kings Mountain Baptist Association in 1903, and later joined by the Sandy Run Baptist Association, the Boiling Springs High School was chartered on December 2, 1905, as an institution “where the young…could have the best possible educational advantages under distinctive Christian influence.” This close relationship of the institution to the area churches continues today. In response to the changing educational needs of the area, the institution was transformed into the Boiling Springs Junior College in 1928. The Great Depression created many problems for the College, but its survival was secured by the sacrifices of many loyal supporters. In 1942, Governor O. Max Gardner began devoting his energy, time and wealth to strengthening and guiding the College. So important was his influence that the name of the institution was changed to Gardner-Webb College in honor of the governor, his wife Fay Webb Gardner, and their families. The decades following World War II were years of physical growth and academic development. New buildings went up as enrollments increased. A major step in the institution’s development was its full accreditation as a senior college in 1971. In 1980 the institution began offering a Master of Arts degree in education. The institution officially became know as Gardner-Webb University in January 1993, culminating years of preparation. Today Gardner-Webb is a thriving regional university, which offers eight distinct degree programs, has a highly qualified faculty and a beautiful campus of over 200 acres. Historically the University has played significant roles in teacher education and ministerial preparation for church-related vocations. Programs of instruction and experiences designed to prepare teachers and ministers continue to be major objectives of the University. Although there have been many changes over the years, Gardner-Webb University remains closely related to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. The University holds in high esteem its commitment to Christian principles and values as the best foundation for the development of human personality and social order.

ATHLETIC TRAINING STAFF DIRECTORY

An integral part of the entire Gardner-Webb University athletics program, the Athletic Training Program emphasizes the importance of wellness in the teams’ pursuit of success. Under the supervision of Kevin Jones, ATC, and the rest of the Athletic Training faculty and staff, athletic training students complete part of their clinical education with the University’s 20 varsity sports. Jones and his staff work toward the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. The athletic training students at GWU are fortunate to have a faculty and staff of nine certified athletic trainers and a cooperative intercollegiate athletics staff to enhance their learning experience. The clinical education that is conducted while serving the student-athletes at Gardner-Webb University allows for comprehensive medical care in a learning environment. The athletic training educational program recently completed its full accreditation by CAATE, marking an exciting moment in the program’s history. Athletic training students are able to pursue a B.S. in Athletic Training through the Department of Physical Education, Wellness and Sport Studies. Upon graduation, athletic training students must complete a three-part examination conducted by the National Athletic Trainer’s Association’s Board of Certification to become Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC). One of the most respected academic majors on campus, the Gardner-Webb Athletic Training educational program boasts a growing enrollment and provides students with first-class instruction and practical experience in their chosen field of study. Currently, Gardner-Webb graduates are working with NFL teams, colleges and universities, high schools and physical therapy clinics. After their academic careers at Gardner-Webb, many students also choose to seek graduate assistant positions at colleges and universities around the nation.
