Concord names football locker room after late coach, GCC grad Dawson
Concord football players and coaches will remember Pat Dawson each time they step foot inside their locker room.
The university has christened the “Pat Dawson Locker Room” inside Callaghan Stadium to remember a former assistant coach.
Dawson, who played at Greensburg Central Catholic and Toledo, died in 2017.
He had been an assistant at Concord since 2011, serving as the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator before becoming the defensive coordinator.

“This program and this generation has lost a great man and coach,” Concord head coach Paul Price said at the time of Dawson’s death. “I have been specially blessed to work beside him over the past several years. I know that my world is better because of him and he will be forever missed.”
Dawson, who was from Vandergrift, was part of the 2014 team that won Mountain East Conference and Super Region One titles and reached the NCAA Division II semifinals.
A former all-state lineman at GCC, Dawson also coached at his high school alma mater before moving up to the college ranks.
