Tom Werner

Thomas Charles Werner


Born:
May 29, 1911
Pittsburgh, PA

Died:
June 11, 1988
Seattle, WA


Career
1928-29 Roosevelt High School - Seattle (High School)
1931-32 University of Washington (College)
1943-44 Alpine Dairy - Seattle (Independent) Head coach
1947-48 Tacoma Mountaineers (PCBL) Head coach / player
1950-51 Alpine Dairy - Seattle (Independent) Head coach

A long-time coach around Seattle (above record not complete), Werner was the head coach of the Tacoma Mounaineers. Late in the 1947-48 season, in Tacoma's 30-point loss to Portland on March 13, 1948, Werner put himself into the game. I am pretty sure that was his only playing appearance that season.

Tom married Inga Fosberg (1913-1995) in 1936 and they had at least one son.
