LVC Athletics Presents Hot Dog Frank Award
01.22.13 |
One of the great traditions in LVC athletics is Hot Dog Frank Day, held annually on a Saturday in February during a basketball doubleheader. Named in honor of late Annville businessman and LVC supporter Frank Aftosmes, Hot Dog Frank Day is popular among fans, who receive free hot dogs during the game. The athletic department also honors an individual at halftime of the men's game with the Hot Dog Frank Athletic Service Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to LVC Athletics with the same enthusiasm that Aftosmes had.

Aftosmes passed away just hours before his beloved men's basketball team won the 1994 NCAA National Championship, but in memory of his support, a statue of Aftosmes stands in LVC's Peace Garden, and a national championship ring is on his right hand.

Saturday marked the 29th annual Hot Dog Frank Day, and the annual service award was given to Dr. Phil Billings, professor of English at LVC and long-time NCAA faculty-athletic representative for the department.
