Acclaimed Football Coach. Born Demosthenes Konstandies Andrecopoulos, he was a legend at Oregon State University where he coached the Beaver football team to some of the biggest wins in OSU history. He coached from 1965 to 1975 and then was the OSU athlectic director from 1975 until his retirement in 1985. He was known affectionately as "The Great Pumpkin" for his trademark girth and bright orange jacket that he wore at every game.

In addition to his work at OSU he was a veteran of World War II where he was awarded the Bronze Star and spent more than a month under heavy fire on Iwo Jima.
