Herb Lauffer is a hell of a
coach and one hell of a man.
The Behrend soccer coach, now
in his third season at Behrend,
being the classiest coach on this
campus, he sets his own style:
white shoes, expensive looking
suits and a sharp announcer-type
voice. His air of professionalism
seems to spread to everyone who
comes in contact with him.
His players respect him
because they know he will mold
thaw into true athletes. The
players want to win and they
gladly accept his two-a-day
workouts because they want to be
in top physical condition for the
big tourney this weekend.
Practice starts at 7:15 a.m.
But Lauffer renli7es that there
are more important things than
winning. That's why he entered
the coaching field. "I always got
more out of athletics than just the
business of winning or losing.
The opportunity to work with
young people,,,and to work with
athletes and try to develop them
and to mold them into a cohesive

Master's Degree at West Virginia
University, earning it in 1968.
After five years at Iroquois,

Lauffer replied, "I guess the

As to what a person gains
participating in sports at any
place but a major school, the
Coach answered, "I think there's
that self-satisfaction of realizing
that you're dedicating yourself,
you're sacrificing a great deal
and you're not taking the easy
way out. It's all apart of your
self-discipline. Psychologically
as well as physically, man needs
competition. He has that in
stinctive nature to compete, to
play, to organize some form of
physical activity."
"A boy gives himself to our
program and gets a lot from it in
just this self-actualization type of
thing where he actualizes himself
as being the best. He may not go
a hundred per cent on it, but he's
trying to be the best at whatever
he's doing."
