McGlinchey, one of the most revered and respected college football coaches in the country, led Frostburg State to new heights as the Bobcats' head coach from 1992-95.
He posted a 30-11-2 mark in his four years and led FSU to a 10-2 finish and the program's first-ever NCAA Division III national playoff appearance in just his second season.

His 1994 squad went 8-2-1 and advanced to the school's third-ever Eastern College Athletic Conference Championship game.
McGlinchey also posted a 44-11-1 mark at rival Salisbury University from 1982-86, leading the Sea Gulls to the 1986 NCAA Division III championship game as well as quarterfinal appearances in 1983 and 1985.
McGlinchey, who also coached at Central Connecticut State from 1987-1991, compiled a 91-49-6 career record in 14 years at the collegiate level.
Cost of the tournament is $100 per person, which includes green fee, cart, goodie bag, prizes (closest to the pin, longest drive) and door prizes, as well as a buffet following the tournament at the Beach Club.
