Wolski Retiring From State College
State College High School head football coach Al Wolski is retiring.
Wolski, who is also a teacher within the State College School District, is stepping away at 63 years old. He has spent the last 10 years as Little Lions head coach. He started coaching in 1973, a 40-year career which included being a graduate assistant at Penn State, head coach at Ithaca (NY) College, and a high school head coach in Pennsylvania and Florida.
"I'm old!" Wolski joked when reached by phone Wednesday night. "I live an active life."
Wolski hopes retirement will allow him to focus on his golf game. He also plays squash, bikes, and fishes. "You never know when you won't be able to anymore," Wolski said.
Wolski led State College to an 87-42 record in his decade with the Little Lions, including a PIAA Class AAAA semifinal berth in 2006 and a state championship runner-up in 2009.
"I've had great kids, great players, and great people," Wolski told 6 Sports. "We have guys not playing but they're still competing, still supporting."
Wolski said State College had 36 seniors in 2013, and while not all of the played, not one of them quit.
