Coach Jilek’s passion for coaching is unrivaled. Originally from Mason City, he was a multi sport athlete and his first love was baseball. Like a lot of our guests he got his basketball coaching start by chance and necessity. One of his strategies is to grow a program from the younger athletes to create total buy in. It seems to be working as Johnston was the 2020 class 5a Girls champions and Coach Jilek was awarded the All- Iowa Girl’s Basketball Coach of the Year!
