Homestead High School is proud to announce that Defensive Coordinator Matt Wolf is a recipient of the United States Marine Corps’ Semper Fi Coach Award. This award recognizes a high school coach who exemplifies the Marine Corps motto: Semper Fidelis - “Always Faithful” - and who models the Marine Corps leadership values of honor, courage, and commitment.
Wolf has been a teacher and coach at Homestead High School since 2001. Throughout his Homestead coaching career, Wolf has been in 18 conference championships, 20 playoff appearances, 11 final four appearances, and was a state championship finalist in 2007 and 2021. His accomplishments also include helping win five state championships in 2006, 2008,
2012, 2015, 2018, being named North Shore Conference Assistant Coach of the Year in 2013, 2015, and 2018, and South East Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 2018.
“The most fulfilling thing about coaching is the preparation and growth that goes into being successful each year,” said Wolf, “I love being with the guys every day and watching them grow
as they continue the traditions of the players before them. There is no feeling like looking back and seeing where you started and how far you have come together as a team.”
According to a release provided by the Marine Corps, a Semper Fi Coach is a coach who creates a legacy of intentional leadership. Wolf is credited with “building a lasting tradition through his selfless commitment to his team and community - his character and actions speak louder than anything else.”
In addition to his tenure as a football coach, since 2016 Wolf has held the position of Academic and Career Coordinator for MTSD and took on the role of co-head coach for the 2020-2021 school year with fellow Homestead teacher and current head football coach Drake Zortman. Wolf is also involved with the Mequon-Thiensville Rotary, recently concluding his presidency of the rotary’s Sunrise Club.
