Coach Wolfe excited for the opportunity as new head coach.

The former OHS Adaptive Floor Hockey Team Head Coach John Scheil stepped down from his position after many years of coaching. Assistant Coach Chris Wolfe stepped in to fill the role as new Head Coach and is not looking back. Coach Wolfe is an Owatonna High School alum of the class of 2006. He attended St. Cloud State where he played rugby for the St. Cloud State Huskies. Coach Wolfe finished out his college years by attending Walden University, which is where he acquired his teaching degree.

Coach Wolfe has a deep passion for his athletes and wants to keep the program running efficiently. Coach Wolfe said, “I was the assistant for floor hockey for nine years, then our head coach resigned. I applied for it and was hoping to get it and when I did it felt like it was a natural transition. It was just one thing, I couldn’t just leave the program. I didn’t want anybody else to take it over but myself.” Coach Wolfe has been given a large role in the team’s future, and he is nothing but optimistic about that fact.

Coach Wolfe’s journey led him to being both a second grade teacher and a three sport coach. Coach Wolfe said, “I kind of did it backward. I started as a Paraprofessional at Washington Elementary and then started coaching floor hockey as the assistant. It led to me going back to get my teaching degree from Walden. Now I teach second grade at Lincoln and coach three sports for Owatonna.” Coach Wolfe is very excited for the opportunity he has been given to step up as the new adaptive floor hockey coach and especially be able to make a positive impact in his community.

The team cannot wait to start their season and go for the ultimate end goal, to be able to hoist the state championship trophy. The adaptive floor hockey team hopes to catch their first win on Dec. 14 when they face Stillwater-Mahtomedi at Stillwater High School.
