John Nelson, Sports Flashback

Updated: Feb 22, 2021

In this installment of the Sports Flashback John Nelson takes us through his run as head coach of the LaSalle Vipers during the 2010 GOJHL playoffs.

The franchise was two years removed from winning the Sutherland Cup in Tecumseh and not in the conversation as contender heading into the back half of the season.

Nelson thrived on the bench with a solid staff and a newfound good luck charm (daughter Kylie).
