Missouri Western vs. Northwest Missouri

NCAA Football Playoffs

Tension runs high at Family Investment Center this time of year. No, not because of the stock market, but because of COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON!
Defending national champion Northwest Missouri State University will host Missouri Western State University in the first round of the NCAA Division II football playoffs on Saturday, Nov. 20, at Bearcat Stadium in Maryville. Kickoff is set for noon.

The term ‘rivalry’ is an understatement when you live in a region like ours. With two talented football programs so close together, you find enemy fans everywhere you go! It’s especially true at Family Investment Center.

Dan Danford, Chief Executive Officer of Family Investment Center, is a Griffon super fan. Dan a graduated from Missouri Western in 1987. He was also honored with the 2003 Missouri Western State College Distinguished Alumni Service Award. Dan supports all Missouri Western athletic teams.

“Jason and I agree on almost everything about investing. We disagree on almost everything when it comes to this football game! The only football point where we agree is that it will be a fun Saturday for both Western and Northwest fans. Our region is lucky to have two quality programs close enough for an intense annual rivalry. It’s a quality of life thing for everyone in our area,” Danford says.

But on the other hand, Dr. Jason White, the firm’s Director of Investments and a Northwest faculty member, couldn’t disagree more. Jason earned a Ph.D. in Economics and Political Science from the University of Missouri in 2003, an MBA from Rockhurst University, and a BS degree in Finance from Northwest Missouri State University. He is a steadfast Bearcat fan, committed to wearing Bearcat Green and supporting all of the Bearcat teams.
