Wide Receivers and Defensive Backs
Doug Odiorne joined the NorthWood Football coaching staff in 2014 as the wide receivers coach for the Panthers.
Doug graduated from NorthWood High School in 1988 and Ball State University in 1992 with a B.S. in Criminal Justice. Doug has been employed with Penske Truck Leasing for 25 years as a sales representative.
Doug played Quarterback on the 1986 State Runner-Up team under Coach Jim Andrews. Doug’s teams went 20-6 in his 2 seasons as the varsity Quarterback and won 2 Sectionals, 1 Regional, 1 Semi-State and finished as Runner-Up in the ’86 State Finals.
Doug currently resides in Wakarusa and enjoys spending time with his two daughters Landry and Sophie. Coach Odiorne enjoys spending time with family, golfing and traveling….the thrill of victory....and the agony of defeat.
Why I Coach: I got into coaching to help young men have a place to belong and be valued for their unique gifts. To give back to a program that taught me more than just football, it taught me to be a better a person, a better father and how to commit to a cause that is greater than any individual. I hope what we do makes a difference in our kid’s lives. Sudden Change does not only apply to the football field, it applies to all aspects in our lives.
Favorite Hobby: Golfing and travelling to out of the way places, not the normal vacation spots.
Favorite Food: All kinds…….love to experiment in the kitchen and try new foods from all over the world
