Former Trumbull coach Jerry McDougall dies at age 75

From the Trumbull Times.Com

Jerry McDougall, patriarch of athletics at Trumbull High, passed away Wednesday morning at St. Vincent's Hospital at the age of 75.

McDougall is survived by his two children, Jerry McDougall Jr. and Lauren Jorgensen. He was predeceased by his wife, Loretta, who died in 2001.

"Coach McDougall simply taught me how to be a better person," said Mike Buswell, who played both football and baseball for McDougall at Trumbull High.

"I asked him when I first started coaching, 'How did you win so many games?' Coach told me when times are good or bad, teach the player, teach the game."
