ATHENS — The Concord University Athletic Department has announced the recognition of Concord’s 1984 West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) Championship Football Team during a pre-game ceremony on Homecoming.
The honoring will take place prior to Concord kicking off against Fairmont State October 19 during its annual Homecoming weekend.
Two members of the 1984 team will be officially inducted into the Concord Athletics Hall of Fame on the morning of October 19 as Reggie Perry, an All-WVIAC First Team linebacker on the conference championship team, and assistant coach John Pinter joins the Hall of Fame.
The 1984 Mountain Lions went 8-3 overall and sported a WVIAC record of 7-1. Additionally, the 1984 team became the fifth team in program history to advance to the postseason as they made it to the first round of the NAIA Playoffs before being eliminated by Carson-Newman.
With the induction of Perry and Pinter, it gives the 1984 football team five members in the Concord Hall of Fame as Kevin Johnson (1997), Craig Plymal (2004) and head coach Marvin Williams (2008) have previously been inducted.
