Steve Fedie, former Orono High School teacher, athletic director and football coach, will be inducted into the Minnesota High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame.

A maximum of six inductees is accepted per year. The honor is reserved for those who have made “significant contributions to Minnesota high school football” and been a head coach for at least 15 years.

Fedie is one of only three head football coaches to have served Orono High School throughout the years. He followed Ike Pesonen in 1980 and served as head coach for 21 years. He was also the head softball coach for 10 years.

He taught marketing, computer applications and accounting in the Business Department, as well as served as the school’s DECA advisor, for 16 years. He was the school’s athletic director for 17 years and retired at the end of the 2008-09 school year.

Prior to his first teaching and coaching job in Mayville, Wisconsin, Fedie was a quarterback for the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where he at one time held the conference record for the most passing attempts (47) in a single game. He currently sits at 11th on the UW-Stout all-time passing list with 3,117 yards and 22 touchdowns.
