Dayton Walk of Fame: Gerard ‘Fuzzy’ Faust

Gerard “Fuzzy” Faust (1907-1991) was a legendary Chaminade and Chaminade-Julienne High School teacher and coach for more than 50 years. His teams won 12 city football league championships, including one in 1956 after the coach came out of retirement for one last season to coach his son. Mr. Faust compiled an amazing win record (132-50-10), but was perhaps better known as a caring teacher and father figure to his student athletes. His ability to enforce high standards helped many of his students go on to become civic, business and political leaders, and many attributed their success to his guidance during this crucial phase in their lives. Fuzzy’s love, enthusiasm, inspiration and example instilled in his students the moral, physical and intellectual discipline to achieve meaningful lives and realize their fullest potential. – Inducted: 2000
