Jake Wolter

Head Coach

Jake Wolter makes his debut as Varsity head coach for the 2016 season, and promises to combine his passion for football with plenty of focus, discipline and energy to the sidelines to motivate his players.

Football is in Jake’s blood. He began his playing career at Wauwatosa East as a running back, quarterback and a defensive back from 1993-1996, earning All State recognition at DB in his senior year. After high school, he played cornerback and strong safety for UW-Whitewater from 1997-2000, winning All American honors at defensive back in 2000. He ended his playing career with the German Football League 2002.

Like so many talented players before him, Jake’s coaching career started by returning to his high school alma mater in 2002 to become head coach for the Red Raiders freshmen team. From there, he joined the Red Raiders’ varsity coaching staff and served as defensive co-coordinator (2003-07), offensive coordinator (2008-11) and ultimately head coach (2010-11). He moved to Whitefish Bay in 2012, and was the varsity’s offensive coordinator through the 2015 season.

Wolter has strong ambitions for the Blue Dukes, and plans on leading his team to, not just solid finishes, but consecutive championships.  That coaching philosophy finds common ground with famed NBA basketball coach Pat Riley, who once remarked:

“Coaches who let a championship team back off from becoming a dynasty are cowards”
