Earlier this week, the Grace Bible College Tigers men’s basketball program announced the addition of their newest assistant coach, former Cedar Springs Redhawks All-State hooper, Nick Wolfe.
Wolfe earned First Team All-State honors in Class B in his junior and senior years, during his legendary high school career playing at Cedar Springs High School from 1990-1994, averaging 31 points per game. (Notably, Wolfe starred as a freshman ahead of this particular writer during his JV campaign as a Redhawk.)
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to be a part of the Grace basketball family,” Wolfe told gracetigers.com. “Coach Bailey and his staff have done an amazing job with this program and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
After leaving the Red Flannel Town, Wolfe took his talents to the Upper Peninsula and Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie. From 1995-1999, Wolfe became a two-time captain and All-GLIAC selection and closed his career as the Lakers’ career 3-point leader and led the team in scoring in 1997-98 with 16.6 points per game. His 1996 team brought home the GLIAC League and Tournament Championship in NCAA D-3 play.
In 2000, Nick spent the season as a Graduate Assistant at LSSU. He’d return to the court, playing professionally in Portugal, in 2001 and 2002.
Wolfe took some time away form the court, but returned to the coaching rankest his former high school as the Varsity Assistant in 2016. Recently, the Hoops crew saw him scouting players at the Red Hawk Showcase at Union HS in Grand Rapids.
Head Coach Gary Bailey told the school’s website, “Nick brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team. I have known Nick since he was a kid and he is a great person to have around our staff and our players. He had an outstanding basketball career in college and overseas. The players will benefit greatly from having Nick with us.”
