"YOU SILLY CITIZEN". I heard this many times as a freshman basketball player at Tempe HS (1960).
Rest In Peace.

I played for coach Widmer at MCC on the '73 National Championship, and "74 Wool Bowl winning teams. He was not only a great coach, as shown by his record, but was a great developer of character.

I can only imagine the amount of life's coach positively influenced during his illustrious career.

I am very thankful I had the opportunity and honor of playing for and learning from "coach".

There are many duties as a coach and as a coach they come into contact with many lives; students, players and friends. You see the many issues other coaches have had with discipline, toughness, and character building. It is a fine line to walk as a coach, but Paul Widmer was able to keep all of these without the abuse and stuck with the strict discipline needed to create a great team. He was firm, he had discipline, but he also had compassion for each individual. He was truly concerned about each of his players whether it was the achievement they have accomplished or the concerns of their tough and trying times we all have during our lives. He did not keep us on the field for hours on end because someone could not get their act together due to fatigue and frustration. He called it quit, so no one would get injured. Through his understanding and compassion was he able to pull out the best in his players and I am proud to have been on his 1974 Championship team and am honored to have had him as my coach. We had our cast of characters, but he and the other coaches were able to keep our acts together. God already knows he has another great coach for his team in heaven. He is missed, but until we seen him again in Heaven.

I had Coach Widmer for Driver's Ed at Tempe High in 1965 and then had one of his sons on a Tempe YMCA basketball team I coached in 1979 and of course many memories of him being a coach at Tempe High. We didn't have great teams, but they had a lot of heart thanks to Coach Widmer. My prayers and condolences to his family.
