The Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator, Mike Pettine Jr, has always had a love for football. He and his father, not only shared the same name, but shared a passion for the game of football. Mike Pettine Jr. spent his life learning from his ‘precise’ and ‘confident’ coach, which eventually led him to becoming the defensive coordinator for multiple NFL teams. When his father suddenly passed, not only him and his family stepped up, but the entire community as well.

The determined community in Doylestown, Pennsylvania commissioned a memorial for Legendary Central West Bucks High School Coach, Mike Pettine Sr. He had spent 31 seasons a head coach to those students. 15 of those seasons his teams undefeated. His teams set new records and a 55 game winning streak. His football coaching career lead to not only the longest winning streak the school has ever seen, but a life changing impact on those that he taught. His constant dedication, care, and competitive spirit left a permanent impression on those he had taught.

His unexpected death in 2017 shocked the community and the ripple was felt throughout the state and even throughout the country. A life size custom bronze statue was created by Big Statues to memorialize this amazing man and the incredible life he lead inspiring others to be their best and try their best. This statue will remind those at Central West Bucks High School and others around the country of Mike Pettine's vast and far reaching legacy. His son stated, “It’s great to be able to remember him not as a shell of himself, and not dying inch by inch”
