Homecoming festivities will get underway on Friday afternoon as Valparaiso University host its Kickoff Luncheon with head coach Landon Fox ahead of this weekend’s events.
A celebration of 100 years of Valpo football and the 50th anniversary of the 1969 conference championship season will begin on Friday in the Christopher Center Community Room. Online registration has closed, but in-person registration will be available beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Friday in the Harre Union.
The luncheon will run from noon to 1:30 p.m. and serve as a precursor to Saturday’s 1 p.m. Homecoming football game against the University of Charleston.
Fox is in his first season leading the Valpo football program after a run of success at the University of Dayton, where he served as the defensive coordinator for 11 seasons that were highlighted by three Pioneer Football League championships.
