Following the passing of local coaching legend John “Hoot” Utnehmer, close friend and coach George Husby wanted to help properly memorialize Hoot. Following the funeral, George took the trophies and awards from Hoot’s coaching and military careers to the Door County Library and was able to set up a display. Husby says Hoot was always willing to go the extra mile for the kids in the community, and he wanted to go the extra mile for his friend.
Husby adds that the display is up in the library through the end of February but will need a new home after that. Husby says he has a couple ideas in mind but is willing to listen to more, and that any help finding a permanent home for the display would be helpful.
