NEW WILMINGTON, PA-- The Westminster admissions office is a pretty tranquil place, especially compared to the chaos on a football field. Brad Tokar, the director of admissions at Westminster, made the transition from lining up in the backfield to helping new students with financial aid.
While attending Westminster from 1986-91, Tokar amassed 5,269 rushing yards, scored 54 touchdowns, and was named a Kodak All-American. After graduation, Tokar worked in Pittsburgh for two years before returning to Westminster in 1993. He has worked at the college for the past 19 years and also serves as an advisor for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
"I had a great experience at Westminster," said Tokar. "I loved my time here as a student, enjoyed the education I received, so when I had an opportunity to come back, I was excited to do that."
We sat down with Tokar to discuss his football career, his life as a member of Westminster faculty, as well as a new passion of his. Listen to the full interview below:
