About The 2018 John C. Monigold Award Honoree

Mr. Michael Jolly Associated with De La Salle for nearly five decades, Mike has served as a coach, teacher, mentor, and Athletic Director. He has been honored for his coaching at many levels, including the CHSL, Macomb County, and various state coaches’ associations; as well as at the national level. Mike instituted Lacrosse at De La Salle, and led the Pilots to their first Lacrosse State Championship in 1994. DLS President John M. Knight said, “Mike Jolly personifies all that is good about Lasallian secondary education. Mike has a heart that is filled with love, kindness, and forgiveness. Mike has touched the hearts of thousands of young people over the course of his years at De La Salle Collegiate. Additionally, there is no better colleague to serve with at De La Salle Collegiate. It is our distinct honor to be able to recognize Mike for all that he has done and continues to do for our Lasallian mission.” Mike Wasik, ‘91, Chair of the Christian Brothers’ Dinner Committee echoed Mr. Knight’s sentiments. “I couldn’t be happier about Coach Jolly being selected as the honoree this year. The honoree is always someone who exemplifies the Lasallian Mission and Mike has impacted thousands of young men who were students and athletes of his. I honestly couldn’t think of a more deserving candidate.” Although Mike grew up in Dearborn, and attended the Dearborn Public Schools through his junior year, his family moved to Mt. Clemens just before his senior year. His father’s job transfer necessitated the move, and Mike was not initially enthusiastic about the change. However doing so turned out to be a positive life changer. That Fall of 1959, Mike ran cross country, and “forayed into basketball.” He was on the team and not playing, but drew the attention of Hall of Fame track coach, Dave McEvers. Mike ended up running the 880, and later threw the javelin in college and the Army. After high school, Mike had plans to join the Navy, but with a November birthday, was too young. “I was in

limbo. Somehow my senior guidance counselor got me into Michigan State.” Mike ran track at MSU, but was really intrigued by lacrosse, introduced on the MSU campus in 1963. “Lacrosse better fits my personality; it is more of a team sport, whereas track is more individual.” He majored in social sciences. earning his bachelor’s degree in 1966. “I discovered psychology. It became my favorite subject to learn and later teach.” Each fall for the next few years, Mike was an assistant football coach in Chippewa Valley, and then back on the MSU Campus for the Winter, Spring, and Summer terms (MSU was then on the quarters system), working on a Master’s in Kinesiology with a Coaching minor. He delayed submitting his project, knowing that the U.S. Army was waiting for him. He also began doctoral work, and earned a second Master’s in Outdoor Education. During college, Mike was in ROTC and went on active duty in 1970, and had flight training at Fort Bliss, in Texas. He was later assigned to South Korea, serving six months on the DMZ, and finishing his year in Seoul as a Special Services Officer. Mike returned home in 1972, did his student teaching, and was hired in Chippewa Valley. Coincidentally, he met John Maronto who was then coaching at Lamphere High School. When John was hired at De La Salle in 1974, he invited Mike to join his staff.


Mike and some of his players and coaches from past Lacrosse days.

Then in 1982, Gary Buslepp, who doubled as Athletic Director and Head Basketball Coach, approached Mike about joining the DLS Basketball Staff, as Freshmen Coach. Two years later, the Brother Rice lacrosse coach approached Buslepp, and then Principal Brother Kevin Gilhooly, about adding lacrosse to the DLS sports line up. Mike was still playing for the Detroit-Windsor Club and was a logical program head. He instituted a hard training regimen, and “We started winning!” The team won its first, and what has been its only, state championship in 1994. Following that State title, Mike was at a crossroads. De La Salle Athletic Director Steve Vercammen had moved on, and then Principal Brother Tom Lackey approached Mike about the job. Mike had reservations, but ultimately took a buyout from Chippewa Valley and became the DLS AD for the next ten years. He continued coaching lacrosse, stepping back to lead the JV team in 2000. He also encouraged student athletes to become part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and annually takes groups to their summer gatherings in Gettysburg, PA. Mike also returned to football and served as an assistant to Paul Verska in 2014 when our varsity team won its first state championship. When Mike decided to step away from the Athletic Director position in 2004, he went back into the classroom part-time, teaching Psychology. He also began the

Sportsmen’s Club, and has introduced the last decade plus of students to Archery and Clay Target Shooting. He also encouraged the development of the IM Fishing program. Mike moderates the target shooting each week, and joins the fishing group when he can. In 1973, Mike married Mary Gay, who was twice widowed, and adopted all six of her sons. Mike and Mary Gay’s son Douglas was born in 1974, and graduated from DLS in 1992. Mike and Mary Gay now have 16 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Over the years, Mike has received numerous coaching honors - on the national, regional, and state level. He has led and served on the boards of many coaching associations. Mike says, “The Christian Brothers’ Dinner Honor is NOT an award you put on a bucket list. It’s relatively easy to get awards nationally - all those selecters see is your resume on paper. But the closer to home you get, people considering you really know you. They see you on all of your days - both good and bad. It never crossed my mind that this would happen to me. Playing a part in the Lasallian mission is a reward in itself. I look in awe at the great men who have been past recipients: Brother George and all of the Brothers, Rich Dobrzynski, and Tony DeSantis, as well as my incredibly deserving colleagues and friends not yet selected. This is not something you vie for. It is a wonderful gift. I am very honored and very humbled.”
