Jim Brophy joined by local coaches Ruth Roberts and Ron Tasior
Three area coaches were named to the Tri-Valley league coaches Hall of Fame recently, including 1972 Cooperstown graduate Jim Brophy, a coach and educator at Edmeston for the past 30 years.
"He was just a legend in Cooperstown at the time, and mine wasn't the only life he affected in a positive way," Brophy said."He had a unique way of folding a group of athletes into a team, and he also taught lessons on the broader game of life.He insisted on good sportsmanship and academics always came first."
After Brophy graduated from Oneonta State in 1976 and was hired at Edmeston as a high school social studies teacher, he started his coaching career as the junior varsity boys basketball coach.
"I started at the right time with a great group of athletes, and we won four J.V. titles in my first five seasons," Brophy said."I've always been a stickler for good sportsmanship and my players know that academics always come first."
Brophy has been both the boys and girls varsity basketball coach over the past 30 years at Edmeston, but he said what he really enjoys is working with the younger kids.
"I feel like you're more of a teacher at the modified and junior varsity level, and that's what I enjoy," he said."I've kind of been a behind the scenes type, so to be recognized by my coaching peers with election into the Hall of Fame was special."
Brophy has been the guidance counselor at Edmeston since 1989, and five years ago undertook the task of rebuilding the girls basketball program.
"We only had about 21 girls total between modified, junior varsity and varsity back then," he said."Now, we have more than 50 and good things are coming for Edmeston girls basketball in the future, I can see it coming."
Now retired from coaching, Brophy said he is eligible to retire from Edmeston in three years, but will probably remain at the school longer than that.
"I really enjoy Edmeston and I enjoy working with the students on a one-on-one basis," Brophy said.
