Those of us who know former University of Delaware cross-country and track and field coach CRR Jim Fischer are indeed thinking how bittersweet an honor this must be for him to be told he’ll be so received by the same institution that five years ago took away from him the job he so loved.
Supremely respected in this community, Fischer will indeed be inducted into the University of Delaware Sports Hall of Fame class of 2016 on October 28, along with other UD sports greats, including Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco.
Congratulations, Coach. No one is worthier of this honor, for all you’ve done for so many over three decades of coaching. See Blue Hen Athletics story. See University of Delaware article.
