Rev. Paul Dugan '45 - Athletic Moderator, 1970-Present A Canisius College icon, Reverend Paul Dugan, S.J. has been the spiritual leader for countless Golden Griffin coaches and student-athletes the past 30 years. No one has witnessed more Canisius College athletic events than "the Dugs", who is a regular at home and away contests for all the sports. His travels across the continents with various teams have made him the modern-day Canisius College version of Johnny Appleseed, spreading the good word of Golden Griffin sports. While there is pleasure connected with all his trips, there is also plenty of work, from securing sites for religious services, rounding up a congregation, counseling and consoling, saying the traditional pre-game prayer and cheering on the teams. His favorite phrase, "Spread the Joy", is a perfect example of his outlook on life.
