Finding Aid & Inventory

Andy Heck ('70, P '98) was born in North Bergen, New Jersey. He attended junior college in Nebraska before being recruited by the Demon Deacons' then-football coach Bill Tate in 1965. In 1966, Heck won the team’s Most Valuable Player award. Though he left Wake after two years to play professional football for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Canadian Football League, he only played one season; Heck was drafted into the U.S. Marine Corps in 1967. As a soldier in the Golf Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, Heck was wounded in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive and recuperated on Guam. He returned to Vietnam, was wounded in action again, discharged, and returned to Wake Forest to finish his college career in 1968, though he did not resume his football career. The scroll was created while Heck was on Guam, though he did not receive it until he returned to New Jersey after his discharge.
