His generosity will impact future athletes for years to come.

A solid performer

Dick’s DeLaney’s love affair with West Chester University began the moment he stepped into Farrell Stadium with his father as a prospective athlete.

After a meeting with coach Dr. Glenn Killinger and the words, “I like you and your dad, I’ll give you a chance,” Dick’s passion for and commitment to WCU began.

As a student-athlete, he played soccer for legendary Coach Mel Lorback, four years of baseball for Coach Killinger, and was captain of the baseball team his senior year. He graduated from WCU with a bachelor’s of science in kinesiology—to him, one of his greatest undergraduate achievements, as his love of education and sports paved the way for his career as a teacher and a coach.
