Seven Former Coal City High School Coaches were honored during halftime at a boy’s basketball game vs. Plano in late January.
Dennis Best, John Cullick, George Dare, Jerry McDowell, Ken W. Miller, Ken P. Miller, and Lenny Onsen are all members of their respective high school sports hall of fame.
They all gathered back to the Coal City gymnasium and received several standing ovations as they were introduced. Towards the end of the ceremony, the retired coaches were given a surprise, as Superintendent Kent Bugg explains:
The plaques commemorating each coach can be found at the south side of the Coal City High School gymnasium. Reporting for WCSJ and WJDK News, I’m Brandon Grossi.
