PHILBRICK's laps around stadium legendary
The University of Western Ontario professor began his treks at football games in '73.
By Vera OVANIN, Sun Media, Sat., June 30, 2007
A scholar, local sports legend, painter, pianist, Canadian and American.
Allen Kellog PHILBRICK, who died Wednesday, was a renaissance man.
For 27 years, he ran a lap each time the University of Western Ontario Mustangs scored a touchdown.
And Western fans chanted with every lap.
"There was a Canadian Tire ad that had a theme, 'Albert, Albert, Albert.' Someone picked it up to praise Allen and it became a&hellip ritual," said former head football coach Larry HAYLOR.
"I remember Homecoming games where the noise of the chant was so extreme, but he would continue running and pointing to the players on the field. He did that, not just at Western, but after every game they played outside of London."
PHILBRICK, who taught geography at Western, died at University Hospital from pulmonary fibrosis.
He was 93.
PHILBRICK's wife wasn't thrilled when he began running laps at football games in 1973. He hung up his track shoes in 2000.
"I wasn't so enthusiastic about it initially, but over time, I learned to appreciate what he was trying to do," Elaine Bjorklund PHILBRICK said yesterday.
"He wanted athletes to learn to apply in academic studies the same strategy they employed in football."
PHILBRICK was born in Chicago in 1914. His father was a painter with the Art Institute of Chicago and his mother was a pianist.
Both passed on their talents to their son.
Sketching and painting were a common theme in the many different jobs he held and his family says composing at the piano was a signature of his personality.
Before teaching geography, the multi-talented PHILBRICK was also an art teacher, labour organizer, early civil rights activist and city planner in different cities and towns in the U.S.
He served in the Second World War as captain in the U.S. Army Air Force
PHILBRICK joined Western in 1965 and retired in 1979.
HAYLOR described him as a wonderful Canadian who was loyal to his birth country.
"He was a great Canadian-American," HAYLOR said.
PHILBRICK is survived by his wife, his son, Allen James PHILBRICK, and his family.
There will be no funeral. A public celebration of PHILBRICK's life will be held in the fall.
Retired Free Press sports writer Bob GAGE, who often interviewed PHILBRICK, said he was quite a character who gave a lot of spirit to the Mustangs.
"Being an academic, you'd think he wouldn't care too much about sports, but he cared a lot about the team, and travelled with the guys, too," GAGE said.
"I thought very highly of him."
