    This individual coached football, tennis, baseball and basketball. It is on the basketball court where this coach is most remembered, his accomplishments may never be equaled.  He amassed a record 232 career wins during his 20-year varsity coaching reign.  His teams won numerous LCAA and Section V Championships.  Unbelievably, this coach had undefeated teams an incredible 16 years apart.  His innate ability to adjust his style of play to his athlete’s attributes is a testament to his ability to win championships with all sizes and styles of athletes.
