He’s coached two college basketball players, one who just finished a great career at Mount Vernon Nazarene and one heading to Mount Union for basketball. He’s coached the North-South game for Ohio, won coach of the year for our state by the coaches association, and won basketball coach of the year for Stark County. He has 126 wins as a high school head basketball coach.
