Two coaches at Perry Hall are retiring Stoy, Wolfe leaving after 14 years with teams

November 20, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Perry Hall football coach Joe Stoy and boys soccer coach Ed Wolfe each have said they are retiring after 14 seasons of coaching.

Stoy, whose teams went 96-48 for his career, has coached or taught in Baltimore County for 30 years. His teams won six county titles and reached three Class 4A state playoffs, including one state semifinal.

DTC Wolfe, whose career record is 122-50-9, has coached teams that won two county titles, three region titles. The 1995 team was Class 4A state runner-up.

In retiring, the 51-year-olds join former Gators' baseball coach Larry Butts (348 career wins), who stepped down after the spring of 1997 after 27 seasons and three state titles in five title game appearances, and former athletic director Al Miller, who ended 40 years of service to county schools this spring.

Stoy's graduates include two-time All-Metro punter-place-kicker Jason Bloom (6-foot-6, 190) and All-County lineman Jason Wancowicz (6-6, 300). Bloom kicked a state-record 57-yard field goal as a senior in 1995 and earned All-Western Athletic Conference honors last season at New Mexico State. Wancowicz earned second-team All-Patriot League honors at Bucknell last year.

Wolfe, whose Gators beat Montgomery County power Whitman in 1995, said: "I wanted to build a class program before I stepped down, and I think I've done that."

Miller coached the Gators' football teams for 19 years, winning five county titles, and assisted Stoy for the remaining 13.
