John Heinrick   
Coach

Heinrick started coaching football at Bellarmine in 1927. Seven years later he began coaching at his alma mater, Stadium, where he made a name for himself. His Stadium Tigers won eleven straight Thanksgiving Day games against Lincoln. He won nine all-city titles, two straight Cross State League crowns, and two state championships.
 
In 1945, Heinrick began coaching football and basketball at the University of Puget Sound. He had an 88-46-11 football record, winning or sharing five Evergreen Conference titles in 17 years. He coached basketball from 1945-59, winning 187 games and twice advancing to the NAIA Tournament. Heinrick also served as the Athletic Director at UPS from 1947-1963.
 
With a break from football and basketball during the summer, Heinrick often coached baseball. His 1937 Tacoma semi-pro team took 5th place nationally and featured the legendary Fred Hutchinson as a pitcher.
 
As a result, it came as no surprise when he was chosen to membership in the Helms National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame, Washington State Sports Hall of Fame, Tacoma-Pierce County Sports Hall of Fame, and the UPS Athletic Hall of Fame.
 
Outside of coaching, Heinrick became President of the Tacoma Athletic Commission, a Pacific Coast Conference college basketball and football official, and a Tournament Director of the WIAA basketball tournaments held in Tacoma.
