never scored a last second touchdown, hit a buzzer beater basket, or
had a game winning hit for the Middies, but Chris Eichenlaub was one
of Midview’s greatest champions.
Chris Eichenlaub loved to be involved in Midview Athletics. If there
was a Middie game taking place in the gym, at the stadium, or on a
diamond, Chris was there, helping out in any way he could to support
the teams and programs. As a business owner, Chris knew intuitively
the hard work of those behind the scenes made the job for those out
front a little bit easier. If you were walking in the door or the
gate, Chris Eichenlaub was there with a warm smile and friendly
greeting ready to sell you some raffle tickets. On a trip to the
concession stand, there was Chris Eichenlaub, selling you a hot dog.
Or, if you happened to be at a Midview volleyball game, who would be
involved in the contest as a line judge? Chris Eichenlaub. If it
involved Midview, Chris was there, pitching in wherever he was asked
If he wasn’t helping out, Chris loved to talk about Midview sports,
as he took part in the broadcast of Midview girls basketball games
on Grafton Cable.
Chris’s work extended beyond game night. He was immersed with the
Midview Athletic Boosters, serving as the organizations treasurer,
and was also an active member of the Midview Endowment Board.
Chris was the proud father of four Midview children, sons Jordan and
Cole, daughters Adrienne and Hannah, but long after they competed at
Midview and graduated, Chris was still passionate about Midview
athletics and supported the Middie programs.
Chris Eichenlaub passed away in October of 2011. But his presence
and impact in the Midview School District, and in particular, his
support of Midview Athletics will live on and be remembered forever
in our community. He was a Midview champion. For that reason, the
Midview Athletic Hall of Fame is honored to present Chris Eichenlaub
with our Service Award.
