Levy honored with AFCA’s Amos Alonzo Stagg Award

Coe’s own Marv Levy ’50 他有很多荣誉,最近又加了一个. The legendary Buffalo Bills coach received the 2019 Amos Alonzo Stagg Award from the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) on Jan. 8.

An accomplished athlete during his days at Coe, 列维后来在哈佛大学获得了硕士学位. 他的教练生涯带着他走遍了整个国家,从圣. Louis Country Day School, back to Coe, then on to the University of New Mexico, 加州大学伯克利分校和威廉玛丽学院. In 1969, Levy moved on to the NFL, 担任了一年的费城老鹰队踢球队教练. 从那时起,他执教洛杉矶公羊队和华盛顿红人队的特殊球队. Levy then spent several seasons with the Canadian Football League as the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes before returning to the NFL in 1978 as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs for five seasons.

在美国橄榄球联盟呆了几年之后, 利维于1986年成为布法罗比尔队的主教练,并在该队效力了11个赛季. During that time, he led the Bills to six AFC Eastern Division titles, 连续四次参加亚足联冠军和连续四次参加超级碗. 列维本人曾三次当选亚足联年度最佳教练,并在1988年当选NFL年度最佳教练. 到1997赛季退役时,他已经带领球队取得了史无前例的112胜.

With his impressive coaching career, 列维在2001年入选职业足球名人堂并不奇怪. 他获得阿莫斯·阿隆佐·斯塔格奖也很合适, which the AFCA grants to the “individual, group or institution whose services have been outstanding in the advancement of the best interests of football.” Amos Alonzo Stagg played a major role in founding the AFCA in the 1920s and is credited with many innovations that made the game of football what it is today.

列维在科俱乐部和足球界都是一个传奇. He received the Alumni Award of Merit in 1972, 1973年进入科田径名人堂,并被授予科的最高荣誉, the Founders’ Medal, in 2017. 列维是一个彻底的忠诚和支持科霍克的人, 科祝贺他获得了最新的当之无愧的荣誉.

For the Coe vs. Creighton basketball game in Omaha, Lucas Novotny ’08 hosted a gathering where roughly 50 alumni, parents and friends got together for appetizers and drinks before heading to the arena to cheer on the Kohawks. Novotny说:“我很高兴有机会继续参与Coe社区. “Something as simple as grabbing a little pre-game food and beverage helps me feel connected to my alma mater. The Coe vs. 克莱顿比赛对我来说是工作和生活的特殊结合. To be able to be involved and connect with Kohawks while they played my employer – Creighton University – was a unique and extremely enjoyable night that re-instilled the pride I have in being a Kohawk. It was great to be surrounded by so many other alumni and friends on a special night of national TV for ol’ Coe College in Cedar Rapids. 感谢所有到场的人,也感谢科给澳门新巴黎人线路blr这个机会.”

Virtual Reality
Coe's Virtual Reality Lab

虚拟现实技术允许科霍克斯进行研究生水平的研究

进入澳门新巴黎人线路blr心理学助理教授Dr. Ben Chihak’s virtual reality world. Literally...step into it. Through their research, Chihak and his students ask participants to step in front of virtual bicyclists careening down a path. The goal? Safely cross between two bicycles. 如果你判断失误,你会被一群毫无歉意的骑车人碾过. After all, you’re in their world now.

Kohawks work in tandem with Chihak studying perceptual psychology — psychology concerned specifically with fundamental aspects of the human cognitive system. To simplify it, Chihak and his students are performing graduate-level research at Coe to gain an understanding of how the human visual system processes information to safely cross the road (or in this case, a bike path).

Students help Chihak perform applied research focused on developing appropriate safety measures, such as having more and/or specific bike lanes and considering the effectiveness of road-crossing training programs in schools. Their theoretical research focuses on reviewing the existing theories of how organisms make their way through the world and all of the elements involved.

During spring term 2018, Coe的学生有机会与Chihak在理论开发方面合作, data collection and analysis. Last fall, Kohawks started digging into theoretical issues, 测试运动控制理论和设计场景进行研究. James Bordwell ’21 attended a conference with Chihak in New Orleans where he was able to present research he performed at Coe and field questions from other researchers. “Overall, my greatest takeaway from the experience was an appreciation for the scope of the psychological community and an awareness that there are others out there who share our curiosity for exploring human behavior and cognition,” said Bordwell.

“参与这项研究的机会使所有学生受益, not just those planning to attend graduate school,” Chihak said. “Students coming from liberal arts institutions tend to have writing experience; it's not often that they get this level of research experience during their undergraduate studies. That’s what sets Coe apart — many students have presented their work in a public forum before they graduate.”
