Everett “Coach” McVicker

A native of Johnstown Coach McVicker came to the Hyndman faculty in 1934 from Shippensburg State Teachers where he was a basketball star and president of his senior class.
Hyndman had a football team in the 1930's known as the "Bulldogs". McVicker became the head coach in 1934. He remained the Bulldog's head coach until the program was disbanded following the 1940 season.
McVicker also coached many of the outstanding Hyndman baseball teams throughout the 1940's and early 1950's, gaining local legendary status during that "Golden Age" of Hyndman baseball. Especially noteworthy were the McVicker led squads from 1946-1949, culminating with their Bi-State Championship Team of 1949 which was inducted into the Bedford County Sports Hall of Fame on June 27, 2015.

Randy has been helping with youth baseball for approximately 30 years. He started by selling soda and chips at the Little League games. Eventually he became a coach with the Broad Top team, where he has become an icon with the Broad Top Cubs.
Several years ago, the team chose the name Cubs in honor of Randy, who is a loyal Chicago Cubs fan. Randy is respected by all players and coaches and is a positive influence for our youth in the Broad Top area.
