Prior to Coach Burgbacher coming to Tipp, they were a cellar dweller in the SWBL. Hardly ever competitive between the 50s and the late 80s. Burgbacher comes over from Covington and they immediately started competing. You don’t want to pin all of the success on one coach but Charlie built a great Program at Tipp. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a decline due to his not being there and the increase in competition, even after the GWOC split.
Coaches do make the difference and Milton is a very good example along with Versailles and Valley View.
Kids like to play for certain coaches and maybe Derge doesn’t have the charisma that Charlie had. He was a war horse. Loved the guy, even if he was a Tipp coach.
