BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – After months of voting, WKU Football began to announce its
All-Century team on Wednesday in honor of the 100th season of Hilltopper Football
The team is led by co-head coaches Jimmy Feix, the program’s all-time winningest
coach, and Jack Harbaugh, leader of the 2002 National Championship team and 2002
AFCA National Coach of the Year.
On Wednesday, the program announced the 12-member offensive side of the team,
including the offensive captain, former All-American and the highest NFL Draft
selection in school history, Forrest Lamp. The three captains were selected by
virtue of their appearance on the highest percentage of ballots received. Thursday’s
announcements will include the 12-member defensive side of the ball, while the
special teamers and one all-purpose player will be announced on Friday.
Over the spring and early summer, WKU invited fans to vote online and put together
their own teams to count for a percentage of the overall voting totals.
Simultaneously, other voting groups worked to create their own teams including
members of athletic administration, W-Club Hall of Famers, and active W-Club
The offense, to account for variances in offensive schemes used in the program from
the wing t to the triple option to a wide-open spread attack, included one
quarterback, five offensive linemen, two running backs, one tight end, and three
wide receivers. Six members of the team played in the current FBS era of the
program, two were members of WKU’s 2002 National Championship team, and four were
members of the program during the Ohio Valley Conference era.
WKU will welcome back and recognize the entire team, where possible, for the home
opener for the 2018 season against Maine on Sept. 8, and a number of activities for
the team and fans will be announced this fall.
