Northern Illinois University Honors Korcek with Entry into Hall of Fame


Byline: Bob Frisk

With Northern Illinois University grabbing some major headlines this fall for its football success, Mike Korcek (Prospect) has been a busy man dealing with the increased media attention.

Korcek serves as NIU's Assistant Athletics Director for Media Relations and also Sports Information Director.

The extra work is just fine with this 1966 graduate of Prospect High School, who understands that his staff's responsibilities grow with the success of the Huskies' sports programs.

Promoting the NIU program in the good and lean years is nothing new for Korcek, who is in his 20th year as Sports Information Director and 32nd in the office. He succeeded NIU's legendary Hall of Fame SID Bud Nangle (Palatine) in 1984.

Nangle was in the area last weekend when he was inducted into the Palatine High School Athletic Hall of Fame.

Korcek has played such a significant role through the years in keeping the NIU name in the media spotlight that the school has named him to its 2003 class of the Northern Illinois University Athletics Hall of Fame.

Korcek and five others will be inducted Friday night at the Regency Room of the Holmes Student Center on the NIU campus. Reception will be at 6 p.m., with the dinner at 7 p.m. and the program going from 8 to 9:30 p.m.

Joining Korcek in the 2003 Hall of Fame will be former NIU women's basketball coach Jane Albright, Sam Bedrosian (baseball, basketball), LaShon Johnson (football), Donnell Thomas (basketball) and Donald Whiteside (basketball).

The inductees will serve as Grand Marshals of the homecoming parade Friday at 5 p.m., and they also will be honored at halftime of the NIU-Western Michigan game on Saturday.

Korcek has won numerous state and national honors for his work as an SID, and he received NIU's Outstanding Service Award in 1989 and the Donald R. Grubb NIU Journalism Alumni of the Year Award in 1998.

A 1970 graduate of NIU, Korcek also is a member of the media wing of the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. He received the "Scoop" Hudgins Lifetime Sports Information Directors Award at the All-American Football Foundation Banquet in Chicago in 2001.
