Rohrig named Loria Award winner at 40th annual Frank Loria Awards Banquet
Frank Beamer speaks on Loria’s legacy as keynote speaker
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - For 40 years, the Frank Loria Awards Dinner has honored the finest from the football fields in Harrison County. It also serves as a way to honor Frank Loria, a legend in his own right. Originally from Clarksburg, Loria was a star at Notre Dame high school before becoming an All-American defensive back at Virginia Tech. Following his time with the Hokies, Loria passed away at 23, coaching for the Marshall Thundering Herd the same year that the team tragically died in a plane crash in 1970. For 40 years, the awards look back on Loria’s accomplishments, they show what he was able to do for the community around him and they serve as a way to recognize the present generation of players on and off of the field.
