Gym dedicated to beloved Auburndale coach


By Bonnie Shelton

AUBURNDALE (WAOW)--Beloved basketball coach Tim Anderson receives a touching tribute. The Auburndale gym will now be known as the "Tim Anderson Gymnasium."

Anderson served as a basketball coach and physical education teacher in the Auburndale School District for over 40 years.

He is the second all-time winningest varsity coach in WIAA Boys Basketball history.

Former students, players and co-workers in the school district all admire the humble coach.

"I had a unique view of him because I was able to play for him and I was a student in his class as a young child. He's had an impact on a lot of kids, not just players. So I thought that was really important," said Chad Weinfurter, the current boys varsity basketball coach.

A ceremony was held at gym before the boy's varsity basketball game December 7th to Anderson.
