ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ALL OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS CD GO TO THE FROSTY AND DONNA WESTERING LEGACY FOOTBALL FUND TO HELP BUILD A FOOTBALL STADIUM ON THE CAMPUS OF PACIFIC LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY.

Note: Frosty Westering, the iconic Pacific Lutheran University head football coach whose four national championships tell only a small part in the story of his remarkable coaching legacy, died on April 12, 2013. He was 85 years old. After his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, Frosty and the voice of PLU Football, Steve Thomas recorded this interview in the studios of Pioneer Sports.

Former Pacific Lutheran University football head coach Frosty Westering is a member of a select fraternity: college football coaches who have won at least 300 games. This group--a Who's Who of collegiate football--includes Eddie Robinson, John Gagliardi, Paul "Bear" Bryant, Charles "Pop" Warner, Amos Alonzo Stagg, Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden. Westering picked up his 300th career victory in the second game of the 2003 season, adding to his legacy. Westering compiled an incredible 305-96-7 overall record (.756 winning percentage) in 40 seasons as a college coach.
Westering's long and storied career, which included a 32-year tenure of winning teams at Pacific Lutheran, was marked by continued excellence, leading to his January 1995 induction into the NAIA Hall of Fame.

Westering, born on Dec. 5, 1927, came to PLU in 1972 after successful coaching stops at Parsons College (Iowa) and Lea College (Minnesota). After Westering's arrival at PLU, excellence was the trademark of EMAL ("Every Man A Lute") football. In addition to winning the 1999 NCAA Division III championship (which it did by becoming the first team to win five straight road games), Pacific Lutheran won NAIA Division II national titles in 1980, 1987 and 1993 and finished as national runner-up in 1983, 1985, 1991 and 1994. His overall record at Pacific Lutheran was a staggering 261-70-5 (.784 winning percentage), and no PLU team under his guidance suffered a losing season. Westering coached 26 NAIA and NCAA First Team All-Americans, and with him at the helm Pacific Lutheran appeared in 15 NAIA Division II national playoffs from 1979-97. In addition, his teams advanced to the Division III playoffs in four of PLU's six years as an NCAA member (through the 2003 season). In the decade of the 90s, PLU compiled an impressive 93-19-2 record (.825 winning percentage), ranking in the top 20 among gridiron programs at all collegiate levels.

Excellence on the football field, however, was only a by-product of Westering's overall life philosophy. He emphasized a double-win theme: victory on the scoreboard and the satisfaction of playing to one's personal potential. Westering, a football letter-winner at both Northwestern and Nebraska-Omaha and a Marine drill instructor, has written a book, Make The Big Time Where You Are, which deals with his double-win philosophy.

Pacific Lutheran football players also portrayed excellence in the classroom and in the community, where they are role models for hundreds of youth in the Parkland area through their personal involvement at several Tacoma area schools. They annually donated approximately 2,000 hours at the schools.

A full professor with a doctorate in Education from the University of Northern Colorado, Westering specialized in sports motivation and sports psychology and was in high demand as a speaker at regional and national gatherings. Westering was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He is survived by his wife Donna, their 5 children and 13 grandchildren.

Inspiring
Whether you are a sports fan or not, the philosophies of Frosty Westering will inspire you. He looks at things differently from most coaches. It is not "whatever it takes to win." He strives to get every player to give their best effort that day. To do it for their teammates, as much as for themselves. It amazes me that the 9th winningest coach in college football never set foot on a field with the sole purpose of winning the game. It was a by-product of giving it your best shot. The beauty of the cd is not only do you learn his philosophies, you get to hear the charisma that made Frosty special. Ultimately, you will be inspired to make the most of your opportunities.
