East's Lehman to attend West Point

Brookfield East quarterback Jonathan Lehman has accepted a verbal offer to play football at the United States Military Academy.
“Army is more than just a school with a great football tradition, a great coaching staff and a great academic ranking; it has all of those things,” Lehman said. “But, it is a school founded and operated on the principles of ‘Duty, Honor, Country” and that sets it apart from every other school in the country.
“To say that I am honored by the offer to play for Coach (Rich) Ellerson at West Point would be an extreme understatement.”
 Lehman had already interviewed with the Congressional interview panels and received a Letter of Admission from USMA.
Lehman, a multi-sport letterman, made his decision to attend Army over other schools such as Brown, Dartmouth, Carnegie Mellon and Navy after spending a week at the USMA Leadership Seminar last summer. While at West Point, Lehman plans to major in either languages or International Relations.
“Jonathan is the whole package,” East coach Tom Swittel said. “He is 6’2, 175 and runs a 4.58 40-yard dash and 4.13 20-yard shuttle.”
The WFCA Hall of Fame coach called Lehman “the fastest quarterback that I have ever coached in over 30 years of coaching, and his work ethic has set new standards here at East.”
Lehman, who passed for 1,581 yards and 18 touchdowns and rushed for 435 yards and 12 scores, led his team to the playoffs for the first time since 2003 with a 9-2 record.
Lehman, a second-team All-Greater Metro Conference quarterback and High Honorable Mention NOW Newspapers All-Suburban choice, was voted co-captain and co-MVP by his teammates.
“Off the field, Jonathan is an excellent student (4.01 GPA) and of high moral character,” Swittel said. “I can’t think of a better place for him than West Point, or a better student-athlete for them than Jonathan. This is the rare perfect fit.”
 

Morin brothers to meet for final time as Woodland wrestling coaches

Tosa wrestling

When Wauwatosa East/West co-op wrestling team hosts Greenfield on Wednesday, it will be another battle of the brothers - Kent Morin of Tosa against Keith Morin of Greenfield.

"I honestly don't know what the record is between us as far as dual wins," Kent said. "It is pretty even if not even tied."

Keith, 61, has coached 38 years, 32 at Greenfield, and this is his 9th season as the head coach at Greenfield.  He is planning on retiring after this season, so this will be their final Woodland Conference meeting barring invitational or post-season meetings.
 
Kent, 51, is in his 18th year of coaching.  He was an assistant coach at Greenfield, then spent 7 years as head coach at Greendale, then two years as a volunteer assistant at Tosa before taking over the head position 8 years ago.
 
"Our teams attend two of the same camps in the summer, MSOE and Waunakee, so our guys know each other well and often are workout partners," kent pointed out.
 
"It is a very friendly competition between friends versus an intense rivalry.  Don't get me wrong, both teams want to win."
