The William and Mary football program lost one of its most passionate and ardent supporters when Tom Mikula died earlier this week.
In addition to being a former player (1943-44, '46-47) and assistant coach (1949-50, 1952) at W&M, Mikula also founded the HEYFARL (Hundred Each Year for a Rising Letterman) scholarship program. He introduced the concept in 1993 as a way to raise funds to provide scholarships for walk-on players.
In just two decades, the HEYFARL endowment has grown to more than $1 million and has supported 61 football players. Among the former scholarship recipients are current Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott and the 2004 Payton Award winner, quarterback Lang Campbell.
“Tom was a great friend and an integral part of the rich William and Mary football tradition,” W&M coach Jimmye Laycock said. “Further, his work and influence on starting and sustaining HEYFARL touched many young men’s lives by providing them with the financial support to both play football and earn a W&M degree. I know I speak for the entire Tribe football family in sending our sympathies out to his friends and relatives.”
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. April 12 at the Alumni House. ...
