Coach. Lincoln High School never had a friendlier face or a better representative of the fabled Red and Black Links than this long-time successful Nebraska high school coach. For forty-one years of a coaching profession which included stints at Waverly, Minden and finally Lincoln High, he set high standards of character and athletic improvement. His specialty was coaching basketball and a career basketball record of 459-311 shows positive results. During his tenure at Minden (1958) and Lincoln High (1959) he developed two state boys basketball champions and two state runners-up. Inducted into the hall of fame of the National High School Coaches Association, his long-time efforts as a volunteer with the American Legion Boys State and Boys Nation indicate a lifetime spent building character in young people as well as improving their athletic ability.
