COACHING HERITAGE

 

Hoover High School has been participating in varsity baseball for over 50 years. During that span there have been only four head coaches

Don Hertler Sr. from 1954-1970 (220-90)
Gordon Knisely from 1971-1984 (230-145)
Mel Long from 1985-2004 (328-221)
Jeff Hite from 2005 to present (229-133)

Statistics exist only back through 1984, but these are the superlative efforts recorded during that time.
