Pioneer Football Loses a Legend

Lewis and Clark Football legend Fred Wilson passed away yesterday at the age of 85. Prior to Coach Fred Wilson's attendance at LC, he served in the U.S. Air Force and attended the University of Oregon. Wilson transferred to LC and prior to graduating in 1951, he led the Pioneer team to an undefeated season and a 61-7 Pear Bowl victory over San Fransisco State as an All-Conference back. Wilson returned to Lewis and Clark to coach many sports, and coached football for 20 years, earning 3 NWC championships. Wilson was named a District 2 NAIA Coach of the Year and is a 5 time inductee into the Pioneer Hall of Fame. His name has graced the playing field at Griswold Stadium since 2006 and will forever remain in the hearts of the Pioneer family. He will be missed greatly by all of us.
