Kenneth Olson
1960 1970
In 1959, Ken Olson served as Maine West's first football coach, first Athletic Director, and became the reason Warriors to this day wear blue and gold. As football coach, he led the Warriors to three Conference titles; 1959, 1963 and 1966. Ken still holds the Warrior record for football wins and winning percentage at .648. From 1959-69 he chalked up an impressive 57 wins against only 25 losses, with seven ties. Ken also coached four All-State players; Al Waters, Dave Aergerter, Bob Banger and Craig Rowells. After leaving football, Ken became the golf team coach from 1971 until his retirement in 1976. He is most deserving of this distinguished honor as a member of Maine West Coaches' Hall of Fame.
