Wienke named new Georgetown-Ridge Farm football coach


GEORGETOWN (WCIA) — Hall of Fame coach Stan Wienke is Georgetown-Ridge Farm’s new football coach. The school board voted to approve Wienke as the Buffaloes’ new coach on Monday night, replacing Josh Cavanaugh who resigned in June.

Wienke will teach health and driver’s education at Georgetown-Ridge Farm, along with a weight room class. He’s been volunteering at Tuscola the past several years after retiring from Villa Grove-Heritage following one season in 2015. Prior to that, Wienke made stops in Shelbyville and in Waterloo, Iowa. The 65-year old retired from Tuscola after the 2007 season, finishing 14 seasons as the Warriors’ head coach. He went 136-28 in his time at Tuscola, leading the program to a state title and runner-up finish in his final two seasons.
