Tom Wilson’90
ans of Rowan University football have a new source for team information on the Internet. Tom Wilson ’90 has created RowanFootball.com, a fan web site devoted to Profs football.

“While I was going to school I did some sports announcing on WGLS and I saw how the football program was starting to make a turnaround under Coach John Bunting,” says Wilson, a self-described marketing and Internet entrepreneur who lives in Elmwood Park. “I continued to follow the team after graduating and that progressed into going to all the games and all of the Stagg Bowls.”

Wilson started tailgating and became interested in game information. “The idea to do the site came from a couple of other sites I saw—D3football.com and mtunionfootball.com,” he explained.

The fan site officially launched in fall 2003. “My big goal is to do a good job,” said Wilson, who was not a football player during his college career. “I want the site to grow and be a credible source of information.”

Wilson’s nonprofit site carries stories that preview each game as well as postgame analysis, photographs, Brown and Gold Club updates and historical information. Plus, audio game highlights are supplied by Rowan Radio, WGLS-FM. Wilson says the site has developed a very enthusiastic following.

“I went from no hits to 5,000 in the first week, to about an average of 10-15,000 hits per week. It topped out at almost 20,000 the week of the playoffs,” said Wilson. “I’ve gotten e-mails from Rowan graduates as far away as Russia and Hawaii who tell me they love the site and that it helps keep them in touch with what’s going on back at the college.” end point
