MLSA Mourns the Passing of John Wilcher

We Celebrate His Foundational Contributions to Lebo Soccer

MLSA Mourns the Passing of John Wilcher

John Wilcher was a pillar of the Lebo soccer family. He brought high school boys and girls soccer programs to Mt. Lebanon, served as the first president of the PA West Soccer Association and lead the Mt. Lebanon Boys’ Varsity to four WPIAL championships and the PA State Championship.

John then became the first head coach of the Allegheny College Women’s Varsity soccer program in Meadville, PA. While he received many coaching awards both regionally and nationally, including induction into several soccer halls of fame, his greatest pride came from watching many former players become soccer coaches too.

He will be greatly missed, and we thank him for his incredible contributions—and lasting legacy.
