Gene Rademacher

Rademacher went from playing quarterback at Western Michigan University in 1970 to teaching and coaching at T.L. Handy in 1971, and he’s been a fixture of the local football scene ever since. He spent 16 years on the sidelines at Handy, including as head coach from 1973-77, before joining the Central football staff for a 30-year run. He also assisted with basketball, baseball and track along the way, but Rademacher carved his niche on the gridiron. He was part of the 1994 staff that guided the Wolves to a state runner-up showing and was named Assistant Coach of the Year by the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association in 2014. A St. Johns native, he was a three-year letterwinner in football at WMU. The longtime Bay City educator currently serves on the Bay City Public Schools board of education.
