His red hair and big voice were a presence on the St. Michael-Albertville football sidelines.
Jason Volby was a favorite with kids and fellow coaches. In his young career, he worked along with coaches who will be known for brining titles to STMA, including Jared Essler, current activities director Keith Cornell and former coach and legend Earl Buaman.
Volby died Tuesday at the young age of 28. A celebration of life is set for, fittingly, the Medina Ballroom tomorrow, Oct. 16, 2021.
