John Zeoli

DeLand Honors Coach John Zeoli

The end of an era is coming to DeLand High School as John Zeoli, the boys basketball coach exits the program to start retirement after entering the Deferred Retirement Option Program several years ago.

Zeoli, in his 36th season, holds the area record for most wins at one school with a 578-320 record. In honor of Coach Zeoli's last home game, fans, faculty and alumni packed the gymnasium wearing Coach Z T-shirts which were sold for $3 each in advance. Before the start of the game Zeoli was honored with a certificate of recognition and a key to the city by DeLand mayor Robert F. Apgar.

As a fitting close to the night the bulldogs delivered a 58-42 victory of the Pine Ridge Panthers to give coach Zeoli his 578th win.
