WCUSD #15 Baseball Field Officially Named in Honor of Gerry Timm

Gerry Timm has been a fixture in the Williamsville and Sherman communities since becoming a teacher at Williamsville High School in the fall of 1966. Besides teaching students in the classroom, he also connected with students on the athletic field. During his three-decade career he impacted the lives of hundreds of student athletes in track, basketball, baseball, and football.

Timmer, as he affectionally was called, was most well-known after coaching football and baseball at WHS. He, along with Paul “Roy” Jenkins, helped to establish the football program at WHS in the fall of 1971. Timmer roamed the sidelines along with Coach Jenkins for the next twenty-nine seasons, helping to establish the winning tradition that we know today for the Bullets Football Program.

Coach Timm became the ninth head coach in the history of the Bullet Baseball Program in the spring of 1973, replacing Don Anielak. This would be his first stint as the head coach of the Bullets, as he would hold this position for three seasons. Timmer returned to the helm in the spring of 1982 and would be in the dugout for the Bullets for the next fourteen seasons. Over the course of his seventeen-year career, Timmer would amass an overall record of 205-136-1, capture four conference titles, and two IHSA regional titles.

He is one of only three coaches to have over 200 wins as head coach for the Bullets Baseball program and is currently third in all-time wins for the program.

As a result of the lasting impact he has had on the lives of not only student-athletes, but thousands of students, and the overall WCUSD #15 community, the WCUSD #15 Board of Education in conjunction with the WCUSD #15 Athletic and Activity Department is honored to officially name the WCUSD #15 Baseball Field in Timmer’s honor. From May 11, 2024 forward, the WCUSD #15 Baseball Field will be known as Gerry Timm Field.
