It is a sad day for Wisconsin High School football; we lost one of our
brothers. Not only was he a great coach, but he was a great man!
Unfortunately, he had to leave this life before his time! God has a
better plan for him; our faith tells us that! God Bless him on his
journey to the our father's football game in the sky, and too his family
and friends as they grieve his passing!

God Bless Phil Ottney!

I covered Phil's team that won the state championship with his son, the Ohman brothers, Scott DeWeyer, Ashley Booth, and all the other talented young men spread throughout the roster. I also covered the Hilltoppers' state championship basketball team a couple of years later - Phil's two boys were on that team. I recall how Phil was just as proud and humble to be the coach of a state championship football team as he was to be the father of two boys that helped nail down a state championship. The older son, a senior, was a substitute on the basketball team and saw limited minutes while his sophomore brother was the first player off the bench who saw a lot of playing time. In fact, he covered Weyauwega-Fremont's stud guard in the state finals. I wanted to do my column for the first day of the tournament on the brothers, so I checked with Phil first; I wanted to know if sibling rivalry would be a problem. He said, no. And it wasn't. I learned that day that life (in the Ottney family) was imitated daily by Phil Ottney, teacher and coach.
