Bruce Falb

He is one of those rare individuals who found a place, liked it and stayed. That is an apt description of Bruce Falb. He was born in Copley and attended Copley High School where he earned three letters in both football and basketball. The only he left was during an 18-month tour of duty in the Navy right out of high school and the four years he spent at Bowling Green University, where he graduated in 1952. Falb taught and coached at Copley for 39 years. He took over the basketball reins in 1956 and over 28 seasons compiled 371 victories and 228 defeats. Twice during Falb's career he was honored as Summit County Coach of the Year (1965-66 and 1978-79). On 12 occasions, including his last six seasons, his Indian cagers captured the Suburban League title and three times his squads were undefeated in regular season play: 18-0 in 1965-66 and 1978-79 and 19-0 in 1980-81.
