EWU Football's Polar Plunge Pays Off and Season Tickets Go on Sale

Posted:

by EWU Athletics

Even Eastern Washington University football coach Beau Baldwin took a frosty dip.

A total of 24 EWU Football players and staff took part in last Saturday’s, Feb. 22, Polar Plunge in Liberty Lake after helping raise $3,100 for Special Olympics Washington. For the second-straight year, the Eagles were recognized with an award as the event’s top fundraising school.

The group’s efforts were led by offensive guard Aaron Neary, the secretary of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) at EWU. Baldwin, who showed up just to watch, was moved by the efforts of his players that he too jumped into the frigid waters.

Student-athletes from Eastern’s football program manned telephones at KHQ Television in Spokane on Feb. 8, and for every $50 that was pledged, an Eastern player was “rewarded” with a plunge into the frigid waters of Liberty Lake on Saturday, Feb. 22.

EWU Athletics and its student-athletes have participated in the Polar Plunge annually since 2012, raising more than $600 dollars that year before raising nearly $700 in 2013.

Eastern’s efforts for the Polar Plunge are coordinated by Joel Vickery, EWU’s assistant athletic director for compliance. Below is a complete list of “plungers.”
