After recording a 12-6-4 overall record, the '08 BGSU team set a school record for fewest losses in a season, and finished second in BGSU history with .636 winning percentage.
Gloden, who supervised academic standards for the Falcons, mentored six ESPN Academic All-District recipients, five Academic All-MAC selections and saw the team's overall grade point average increase from 3.1 to 3.5.
