Drake Honors Chuck Schoffner--No One Did It Better Than the Hard-Working Guy Who Is Retiring After a Long, Distinguished Career At the Des Moines AP

Drake University officials did a very nice thing in the Bulldogs' first basketball game of the season at the new Wells Fargo Arena in downtown Des Moines when sports information director Mike Mahon presented Chuck Schoffner, sports editor of the Associated Press in Des Moines, with a plaque.

The plaque said, "Drake University honors Chuck Schoffner, Associated Press, for his coverage of intercollegiate athletics. November 20, 2005."

Schoffner has been a hard-working, very efficient sportswriter for many years and will be missed by those who worked with him [certainly I am one of those] throughout his outstanding career at the AP.

No one did it better than Schoffner. Enjoy your retirement, Chuck.
