• • - f . -,-• : *w,< /•••• '&„ Legendary coach still On active list at U.I.U. For- over half a century Dr. John (Doc) Dorman has piloted the athletic programs at Upper Iowa University. Now in his 59th year of service, the 84-year-old mentor is known as the Dean of American's Football Coaches, from point of service at one institution. So far as is known, he is the oldest collegiate coach still in active service. He attended elementary and high school in Fayette, where he was born in 1878. He played on the U.I.U. athletic teams while still attending high school, since there were not conference rules at that time. During his four years at college, 1896-1900, he excelled in both football and baseball. After graduation in 1900 with a B.S. degree from Upper Iowa, he entered Georgetown University and received his DJJ.S. degree in 1904. "Doc" then returned to Fayette and entered dental practice with his father. It was at this time that he started helping college boys, unofficially, with sports. In 1908 University President Dr. R. W. Cooper suggested to the board of trustees that the Fayette dentist get an annual salary of '$200 for coaching the Peacock teams. "Pay John ?200 to go out and play with those boys?" one board member shouted "Why, you couldn't pay him to keep away from them!" The motion was approved, however, and since that time "Doc" has produced more winning football teams and pulled more teeth than any coach in the Iowa conference. Dr. Dorman has received many awards; two of the most distinguished being the first small college football coach to receive the National Football Writers Association award, and the first small college football coach to be named to the Helms Athletic Foundation Hail of Fame. His love of boys extends deep inside his pocket book. also. A room back of his home has provided housing for many athletes through the years. He didn't draw a cent of salary during the depression years and even objected to being paid back in the early 1900's. University records reflect that "Doc's" salary meant little to him and he has given most or all of it back to the school through the Living Endowment League and the scholarships fund. The nationally-known coach taught razzle-dazzle fast football with multiple handoffs and long passes before most coaches thought of them. His record and reputation as a master plotter of strategy on the gridiron are well known.

"Gives the game character," he says, "and fools hell out of the opposition." Typical plays were tabbed as Merry-go-round, Hamburger, Pullman Sleeper, Fiddle-Dee-Dee, and Get That Guy." 17 lettermen return The Peacocks have 17 returning lettermen on their football squad. Missing from the lineup due to graduation or other causes are such experienced stallwarts as Keith Clough, Terry DeBerg, Don Grove, Joe Harris, Paul Junkman, Gene Klinge, Gary Korhonen, Jim Lang, Larry LJnde, Frank Lipscomb, Clark Miller, Jim Neely, Mike Scott and Marty Spratt. Coach Eb Eischeid, however, will have the following returnees upon which to build his 1962 squad: Otis D. Blockhus, 185 pound full- Doc serves more in an advisory capacity now, with the more strenuous job of directing athletics being passed on to his former pupil, Eb Eischeid. However, "Doc" can still be seen, with a cap placed squarely over his thin, graying hair, every time the Peacocks step out for action. He is a colorful personality, and all who know him will agree that his contributions to the boys in sports and character development will never be fully measured. "Doctor John" probably has had more influence on the young people of northeastern Iowa than any other person. Small wonder then,> that he is known throughout the area as "Mister U.I.U."
