  • Sports Talk: Joe Hegler a...

    I was never happier to see Wofford win a football game than on Nov. 24 when the Terriers topped Elon, 19-7 in the FCS playoffs.
    Yes, it’s always good to see a state school prevail, especially in the postseason, but it goes beyond that fact.
    As many folks know that was the last football game the late Joe Hegler saw his beloved T-Dogs play. When it was over, Joe was tailgating with friends when he had a fatal heart attack. The ultimate ecstacy of winning and the emotional pain of a deep loss.
