Ken Pelo

Ken Pelo touched many lives in his 37-year coaching career at Rogers High School in Spokane, Washington.

During this time, he had 13 Greater Spokane League championships, five second-place finishes, one Region IV championship, three second-place regional finishes, 58 state placers and 125 state qualifiers.
