Kent Wigle Stadium Dedication
South Umpqua High School will recognize former football coach Kent Wigle on Friday night, October 17, 2014, by naming its football stadium after him. Wigle led the Lancers to four state championship games during his 17-year tenure at the our school. SUHS was 1-1-2 in the championship games the school appeared in under Wigle, who led SU to the playoffs 10 times in 17 seasons . A graduate of Riddle High School, Wigle compiled a record of 134-39-2 during his tenure at South Umpqua. His 1977 team won the state title while his teams in 1976 and 1981 tied in the championship game (prior to the advent of overtime in high school football). From South Umpqua, Wigle moved to Marshfield High School where he coached for 21 seasons, winning one more state championship in the process. He was named the National High School Coach of the Year in 2005. He retired as the second winningest coach in state history, posting a record of 307-99-2, including a mark of 38-23-2 in the playoffs.
Friday’s game is being billed as the “Wigle Bowl” as South Umpqua will entertain Marshfield in a key Far West League game. The visiting Pirates are 3-0 in conference play while SU is 2-1. Marshfield shares the Far West lead with North Bend with two weeks to play. Wigle will be in attendance at Friday’s game and will be honored during halftime of the contest. Please turn out for this prestigious occasion.
