BOYS FOOTBALL | Varsity

Head Coach: Bill Ziemba (1st Season): 7-5

Email: wsziemba@cps.edu 

Conference: Red Bird

Program Highlights:

IHSA State Playoffs (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017)

Conference Championships (2012, 2014)

City Finalist (2018)

Coach Bill Ziemba was named the third head coach in Solorio’s history after spending the past 5 years as the offensive coordinator of the high powered Sun Warrior attack.  During his time within Solorio’s program, the Sun Warriors have risen to be one of the top teams in the Chicago Public League, making it to 4 consecutive state playoffs (2014-2017) while also sending numerous student-athletes onto top college and universities to continue their career.  In his first season as head coach, Ziemba took the Sun Warriors to the Chicago Public League Championship game for the first time ever, while also beating local rivals Hubbard and Curie.

Prior to Solorio, Ziemba coached at Shepard and Richards High School.  He began coaching after a successful football career, first starring at Richards under legendary Head Coach Gary Korhonen.  Ziemba went on to be a 4-year letter winner and co-captain at North Park University and then played a season for the Chicago Slaughter of the Indoor Football League in 2010. 

Getting to know Coach Ziemba

Why did you get into coaching?

“I got into coaching to work hand-in-hand with teachers to shape the development and future of our students and provide the greatest opportunity for success at the collegiate level – whether that’s as students or student-athletes.  I want to teach our players how to handle success and failures with poise and composure so that they can handle those things throughout their lives."

What are your goals for your program/team?

"My goal as a football coach is to create a program that the school and community can be proud of both on and off the field.  I want to create an atmosphere of pride and to instill in our players the importance of great attitude, character, discipline, knowledge, goal setting, and how these factors apply to life as well as football.

I am looking for our program to compete for a conference title, make the city playoffs and compete for Prep Bowl titles while being state playoff eligible year in and year out."

What is your favorite part of coaching at Solorio?

"Just seeing how the school community and neighborhood has embraced our football team.  We have great crowds every Friday night and it’s great to be a part of bringing our community together to celebrate everything that makes Solorio one of the premier high schools in Chicago."
