"Our kids are just having a
fabulous religious education.-
In a temple this size, you have
to volunteer your services in
order to make the Temple
run."
Lincoln started as a
freshman for Oakland
University, then transferred
to the University of
Michigan. U-M assistant
coach Fred Snowden asked
Lincoln to try out for the
basketball team, but Lincoln
declined. "Michigan was
playing a few levels above
where I was at," he says.
While at U-M, Lincoln got
his first coaching job, guiding
Ford's JV for a season. Then
he and Gigi, who became his
wife while both were U-M
students, took teaching jobs
in Arizona. A year later, they
taught in New South Wales,
Australia, returning to Ann
Arbor the following year,
where Lincoln earned a
master's degree in ad-

Dan Stulberg:
"In its infancy."

ministration. Both landed
teaching jobs in the Battle
Creek area.
In Harbor Creek, Lincoln
has coached junior high foot-
ball and boys' and girls'
basketball; freshman base-
ball; junior varsity boys'
basketball and girls' varsity
basketball.
This year, his first as Har-
bor Creek boys' varsity cage
mentor, Lincoln's squad
finished 10-12, defeating Col-
dwater, 67-52, in the first
Class B district game before
falling, 82-63, to state power
Albion.
Lincoln's chief satisfaction
from coaching is, "You see
kids grow all the time.
Basketball is a wonderful
sport. There are aspects of life

that are just like it: you're go-
ing to be out there competing
in the world and trying to do
your best and, at the same
time, working with other peo-
ple to accomplish those ends.
Lincoln also is treasurer of
the Wattles Park Men's Club,
which provided organized
sports for over 3,000 children
in the Battle Creek area.
Because of time with the
club and his teaching job at
Harbor Creek Junior High,
Lincoln twice turned down
the varsity coaching job
before finally accepting it last
summer.
Lincoln likes the possibili-
ty he could eventually coach
his sons. Geoffrey, who will be
bar mitzvah in May, and Ben-
ji, 11, both play basketball.
The Lincolns' daughter, Ruth,
will be 2 in April. She's not
playing yet, but "She's jamm-
ing , on her Jordan jammer
already," says Lincoln.
Despite the Lincolns' big-
city roots, they enjoy Battle
Creek. "We vacation but
we're really satisfied with
what we have here. Living in
a smaller town has a lot of ad-
vantages, and there's also
having the big city close
enough to you so that you can
still go to see the Tigers. We
don't miss a lot of the rushed
life that is Detroit."
Stulberg's grandfather
started Marshall Iron and
Metal Co., of which Stulberg
became president when his
father retired in 1983.
As did Lincoln, Stulberg
coached while in college,
coaching the freshman team
at Alma High School while
attending Alma College. He
later coached one year at Nor-
thview High School in Grand
Rapids.
Stulberg was JV and assis-
tant coach at Marshall before
taking the girls' varsity head
coaching job in 1981.
Combining coaching with
business responsibilities is
not easy, although being the
boss helps, he says. "It's kind
of hard. I end up taking off
anywhere from five to eight
hours a week, leaving early
for practices and away-
games."
Marshall has been a Class
B girls' basketball power,
averaging 20 wins per season
through the 80s, until this
season's 8-14 mark.
Marshall went to the state
finals in Stulberg's final year
as an assistant coach. Since
