Warren Alumni, Staff Are Very Good Sports


Byline: Jamie Collins

In recent weeks, three associates of Warren Township High School have been honored for their outstanding athletic achievements.

Most recently, on Nov. 12, at Warren's fall sports awards night, Warren alumnus Tim Kohn was honored for being the first Warren graduate to play professional football. Kohn currently starts as an offensive lineman for the Oakland Raiders .

In honor of his athletic accomplishments, Kohn's Raiders jersey, Warren varsity letter and a plaque will be displayed at both the O'Plaine and Almond campuses. The display was presented by the Warren Township High School Foundation. The foundation is a not- for-profit community organization dedicated to supporting initiatives to advance the educational experience at the school.

On Oct. 20, Warren wrestling coach Mark Tiffany was inducted into the Northern Illinois University Athletic Hall of Fame.

At Northern Illinois University, he qualified as a College All- American and was named Outstanding Athlete of NIU in his senior year with a career record of 54-9-1-17 (won, lost, draw, pin). …
