Athletic directors know the game


A passion for athletics drives Linder, Etzler, Altimus

By JOE SHOUSE • Progress Sportswriter

Their job, or maybe I should say, their passion, is evident when you talk to them. The good far outweighs the bad (and there is plenty of the latter), but they press on to carry out their many responsibilities. In some respects, it is a thankless job. But for these three, it is not about the thanks but it’s about the passion.
