Forrestville Valley Announces Head Boys' Basketball Coach

On Wednesday, May 17th Forrestville Valley C.U.S.D. #221 formally approved the hiring  of Jonathan Schneiderman for their Head Boys' Basketball Coach Opening after the unexpected resignation of Shane Bautch.  The former UIC standout and Forreston alum was the Forreston Head Coach from 2005 through 2014 when he led the Cardinals to a 178-85 record including Regional Titles in 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2012, along with Sectional Titles in 2006 and 2011.  Coach Schneiderman's influence was also seen on the 2015 Final Four Team.

Forreston Assistant Principal/Athletic Director Kyle Zick said, "We are excited and fortunate to have Mr. Schneiderman return to the coaching ranks at Forreston High School.  His character and integrity are exactly what we want in front of our young men on a  daily basis.  He built a successful program that set the standard for the area from 2005-2014 and we look forward to that same standard coming back to Forreston."

Superintendent Sheri Smith commented, "We are grateful Mr. Schneiderman is willing to step back into the head coaching role.  We understand the time and sacrifices needed to run a quality program and we appreciate Mr. Schneiderman's willingness, along with his family support, to lead our young men once again".

Schneiderman will continue with his role as Elementary Principal at Forreston Grade School and German Valley Grade School.  He resides in German Valley with his wife Laurie and twins Sullivan and Lucy.
