Better known as "Biggs" by his friends, Mike Wirta is in his 44th year as George Fox University's basketball statistical guru. The school's most loyal fan, he entered the 2013-14 season with a string of attendance at 768 straight George Fox men's basketball contests, home and road, and has worked 503 in a row at home. The last home game he missed was in 1972 when he was in military service. He has now seen 1,179 men's games altogether (53.45 percent of all 2,206 games in the team's 108 seasons of competition).

Wirta, 63, devotes many volunteer hours to compiling statistics and records for George Fox players and teams. His vast knowledge of Bruin sports history is invaluable in his position as official historian for the school's Sports Hall of Fame Selection Committee. He also calls statistics for the women's basketball team and handles scorebook duties for the Bruins during the baseball season.

A 1974 graduate of George Fox with a bachelor of arts in history and a longtime member of the university's plant services staff, Wirta has the upkeep of the Wheeler Sports Center as his major responsibility. In 1988, the university's Alumni Association named him its Volunteer of the Year, just the second person to receive the designation at that time. In 1994, he received an NAIA District 2 Meritorious Service Award. He was inducted into the George Fox Sports Hall of Fame in 1998.
