Mount Carmel Area will remember 'Jazz' with black jerseys
MOUNT CARMEL - Mount Carmel Area will remember legendary coach Jazz Diminick this season by wearing black jerseys bearing a "Jazz" patch for home games.
Diminick, who had a record of 267-81-7 in his 31 seasons at Mount Carmel, and overall won 290 games as a scholastic coach, the most in the state of Pennsylvania at the time he finished his career, died July 2.
The school board later in July voted to name the field at the Silver Bowl "Jazz Diminick Field." A ceremony is scheduled at next Friday's game.
The jerseys, which just arrived this week, were purchased through donations to the football program.
