The Jersey Community Unit School District took a moment to recognize basketball coach Jim Woelfel during Friday’s basketball game at Jersey Community Middle School.
Coach Woelfel was celebrated for his 45 years of coaching and dedication to Jersey student-athletes.
“Coach Woelfel has served as a custodian within our schools and somehow found the energy to coach basketball for 45 years at St. Francis Holy Ghost, Jersey and his daughter’s own teams at Southwestern,” district officials said before presenting Coach Woelfel with a plaque. “Coach Woelfel is known to be an old-school hard-nosed coach, but don’t let that fool you because he has a heart of gold for our student-athletes. He consistently let our student-athletes rise to their potential whether they were his best player or a young person who was just learning the game. During his years of coaching in Jersey Community, Coach Woelfel has led his fifth and sixth-grade team to eight county championships and middle school teams to two conference titles.”
