Coach Waverly Tillar, the head football coach at ECSU, has been named CIAA Coach
of the Week according to a CIAA news release.
Coach Tillar and the Vikings captured their second CIAA Eastern Division Championship
in the past three seasons with their 39-9 win over Saint Paul's this past Saturday.
ECSU is 6-0 against CIAA opponents in 2008 and the Vikings are now the first team
since the conference championship game's resurrection in 2000 to secure their Championship
berth before the final weekend of competition. After Saturday's game, Coach Tillar
gathered with the Vikings to congratulate them on winning the homecoming game.
The Vikings (6-3, CIAA 6-0) will close out the regular season on Saturday, November
1st as they host Virginia Union University for Senior Day 2008. They will face the
CIAA Western Division champion for the conference title on November 8th at Durham
County Stadium in Durham, NC. For more information on ECSU Athletics, visit www.ecsuvikings.com.
