BEERWORTH NAMED ASSISTANT COACH FOR COLBY FOOTBALL

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Connor Beerworth, who was part of the staff at the University of New Hampshire and coached at Castleton State, will be an assistant coach for the Colby College football team this fall.

Beerworth will lead the linebackers for Colby head coach Jonathan Michaeles.

Beerworth worked as a graduate intern at UNH since January. During the 2013 season, he coached outside linebackers, strong safeties, and worked with special teams at Castleton State. Beerworth also coached with the Rutland (Vt.) High School football team during the 2013 season with the running backs and defensive backs.

"Connor will bring an energy and enthusiasm to our team," Michaeles said. "He is a tremendous young coach whose football acumen belies his age. He also understands the challenges of being a student-athlete at an elite academic institution."

Beerworth graduated from Union College in May 2013, earning team defensive MVP honors as an outside linebacker in his senior season. He also was on the All-Liberty League All-Academic Team.

"Connor comes from a great football background, playing at one of the best programs in the state of Vermont for Mike Norman at Rutland," Michaeles said. "His father also was a long-time high school coach at Rutland before Connor's playing days.

Colby comes up short in home football opener
Middlebury rolls to NESCAC win

BY RANDY WHITEHOUSE..WATERVILLE — Colby’s frustrating day on defense could be summed up in the two drives Middlebury sandwiched around halftime. Both ended in field goals, but both took a big bite out of the Mules physically and psychologically. Virtually any time Colby touched the ball on offense would suffice to sum up its frustrations on that side, too. Matt Milano threw for 290 yards and two touchdowns to lead a Middlebury offense that racked up 458 yards on offense and spoiled the Mules’ home-opener, 27-7 on a summer-like Saturday at Seaverns Field at Harold Alfond Stadium...

COLBY GREAT DICK MCGEE DIES AT AGE 84

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College great Dick McGee, a former athletics director and football coach at the College, died at age 84 on Thursday.

The McGee family plans to host calling hours Friday, March 6, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Lawry Brothers Funeral home in Fairfield with a funeral mass for family and close family friends afterward. On Saturday, March 7, a celebration of the Life of Dick McGee will be held in Colby's Page Commons, Cotter Union, beginning at 1 p.m.

Coach McGee was named head football coach at Colby in 1967 and remained in that position through 1978. He was athletics director from 1974 to 1987. He then spent time as an assistant coach and remained on the faculty as a professor of physical education until his retirement in 1998 after more than 30 years of service to Colby.

Coach McGee's 1972 football team remains tied with the 2000 squad for best record in Colby football history at 7-1.

Coach McGee was named the Colby C Club's Man of the Year in 1992, when he was lauded as a devoted teacher and coach and as a caring advisor and friend, and he received Colby's Carl E. Nelson Sports Achievement Award in 2007.

Coach McGee was very active in retirement and still came up to Colby for daily workouts in the fitness center and to socialize with coaches and students
