Former University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops will speak at the Flagler College Crimson & Gold Banquet Wednesday, Oct. 23 in the Hotel Ponce de Leon’s elegant dining hall. The event starts at 6 p.m. with a social and a silent auction. The dinner follows at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for the annual event.
All proceeds from the silent and live auctions benefit the Flagler Athletics Scholarship Fund. Last year, these events together helped raise $125,000.
Stoops is known as a legendary college football coach as he’s the only one to have wins in all four BCS Bowl Games – the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta and Orange Bowls. He’s also a National Championship coach with ten coach of the year awards. In February of next year, he’ll begin his new role as head coach of the new Dallas XFL (football) team.
