So glad I will finally feel comfortable returning to a Davis game.
It really was time. Jay had a strong ability to break his players down, but
struggled to build them back up.
Wasn't suprprised to see Roger Reid mentioned by Jay in this article...as
someone who had to play for Jay, Roger seems to be his hero.
It seems many of our tenured head coaches are stepping away from the game,
anymore. Coach Welk produced many fine teams throughout the years. His teams
dictated many outcomes due to their hard nose play.
Coach Jay is one of the most respected guys in the coaching business. He's
done things "the right way" taught players to play "the right
way." As he has shared with his colleagues many lessons, I've tried
to gather as much information as possible to learn how he's run such a
successful and first-class program. A young coach would be very fortunate to
sit in on a session and learn from Coach Welk. Jay will me missed and has not
only influenced many young men but many other coaches as well! Good luck
with your next adventures! Doug Meacham, Am Fork high school
Coach...You did it the right way. I always enjoyed watching your teams play.
Good luck in your future endeavors..Davis High School is certainly fortunate to
have had you through the years.
Coach Welk is absolutely one of the best people in the business. His teams
always played the right way on the court and acted the right way off. A really
classy guy who will be missed sorely in profession by all who know him. Best of
luck coach and Godspeed!
