Players With Pride
Deer Park High School
Deer Park Teacher/ Coach (1960-1969)
Jerry Wood was an educator and a coach for 32 years. Many will agree that nine of his greatest years were spent at Deer Park High School. From 1960-1969, Coach Wood taught his students about the history of the world and how we govern our great country during the day. But it was after school that Coach Wood taught more than out of the pages of a book. He taught his players the will to succeed. Be it on the football field, basketball court or the baseball diamond, Coach Wood’s teams knew success.
Jerry was an assistant varsity football coach for eight of his years at DP. He coached varsity baseball for all nine of his years at Deer Park. It was on the basketball court that Coach Wood’s teams excelled. In seven years as the varsity head coach, theWildcats won three Eastern Hills League Championships. Until 2008, the 1969 Wildcats were the last boys’ basketball league champions.
Jerry Wood helped to set and continue a standard of educating and coaching at Deer Park High School. Your former students and players thank you for your efforts!
