Long-time Warriors Football Coach Tom Sawyer to retire

WINONA Minn. (WKBT)–As the Warriors gear up for their 2021 season, there’s some new found pressure to make it a special one as a long time fixture behind the team has decided to hang it up after the fall semester.

Tom Sawyer’s set every Warrior coaching record including wins and winning percentage, with a near 200 wins as a coach.

Before sawyer took over, Winona State had gone through 20 head coaches, but he’s been one they’ve held on to for a quarter of a century and after taking over in 1996, there have only been three losing seasons under his tenure.
