OTTAWA -- Wes Coomes of Phillipsburg will be recognized Oct. 24 as a Coach Dick Peters Scholarship recipient during Ottawa University's Braves Athletic Hall of Fame induction banquet. The ceremony is slated to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Mowbray Student Union at 1001 S. Cedar Street, Ottawa. Registration is required at www.ottawauniversityalumni.com or by calling (785) 248-2336.

In his first season on the gridiron as a Brave, Coomes, a senior, earned Honorable Mention All-KCAC honors at linebacker. He finished the season with 64 tackles, one sack, and six pass breakups. Coomes had a career-high 11 tackles against Sterling College. He is the son of Kevin Coomes and Sherisa Wood and is a business administration and physical education major.

"Wes epitomizes what we look for in a worker," said Head Football Coach Kent Kessinger. "He comes every day to practice willing to give his best to learn and make himself and his teammates better. Wes has been a part of our Unity Council since he arrived on campus as a junior college transfer, and this year he was chosen as a captain-both accomplishments I feel speak to his character and leadership."

The Coach Peters Scholarship is awarded in honor of Coach Dick Peters', whose playing career included three letters each in football and track, as well as All-Big Six End honors at Kansas State University. He served as assistant coach for three years at Ottawa University, becoming head football coach in 1956 to create a record of 129-42-3 in 22 years, including three undefeated seasons. OU won the KCAC Conference title in football seven times and took the title four times in track from 1949-1952 under Peters' coaching. He also served as athletic director. He was elected to the NAIA Coaches Hall of Fame in 1973 and posthumously to the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in 1977. He was a WWII veteran and was a charter member of the Braves Athletic Hall of Fame. The Peters Scholarship is a $1,100 award.
