Coach–How to build a successful track & field program within Nebraska high schools could have been a book written by this winning coach of Gothenburg High School. The cardinal & white Swedes won the Class B state track meet five times, in 1949, 1957, 1962, 1967 and 1971. No doubt the ability to inspire a united team effort was one of his coaching secrets. Dutch Zorn also led one of the best all-class football teams in history, leading the Gothenburg players on the gridiron to 1945 glory when they topped an undefeated season by beating Creighton Prep of Omaha, 27-21.  His teams won championships in five different decades.  The school annually hosts a track meet in his name.  He and fellow 1994 inductee, Wayne Binfield of Scottsbluff, were honored by the Nebraska Coaches Association with an award in their name (Dutch & Binny Award) that bestows laurels for not just winning but for being an all-around coach.
