Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 LETHBRIDQE HERALD May 1974 Hector Negrello loves but wants to take it easy By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer It seems as though a long and satisfying career as a coach and organizer has come to an end tor one of Southern Alberta's most respected sports personalities Hector Negrello. who resides on a five-acre plot IVz miles southeast of has spent 36 of his S3 years in the sports field in one capacity or and has finally decided to call it quits. As a he entertained thousands of sports and as a coach and organizer he helped dozens of young athletes develop their careers. Once an active Hector still is quickly recognized for having excelled in the sports of baseball and hockey. His career was self to say the as he was a key performer as two ball clubs won major as he helped guide the 1951 Lethbridge Maple Leafs to the world hockey championship crown It all started in and Hector would be the first to say he owed it all to his love of sports. was 16 years old at the time and I loved playing sports so much that I'd hitch-hike from my home in Coalhurst to Lethbridge just to play organized he said it all paid off because I was able to be a member of Babe Hams' ball club that won the Alberta intermediate title that he added. The following year he competed at the senior handling the chores at third base and on the mound with the Lethbridge Miners He eyed a possible professional ball career at the but it was soon hampered by the start of the Second World War as he joined the RCAF. think I had a chance to make it in the pro but the war more or less put an end to he said wasn't really scouted so who is to say I was good enough to make he added After the war Hector continued to play with the and it was success right from the start as he helped his team-mates capture the Alberta senior baseball title From that year his baseball career was over- shadowed by his auspicious hockey career. He played with the Lethbridge Maple Leafs senior club for three or four and then in Hector achieved national and international recognition as he captained the Maple Leafs to the world hockey title in Pans never forget that he said. We were just a pick-up and with no league to play in the only games we got in were exhibition ones. we were a determined bunch of hockey players and it sure proved to be worthwhile in the Aftei the world championship he continued his career with the Maple Leafs in the old Big Six Hockey League. He stayed with the Leafs for the rest of his career which was interrupted by a stint with a senior hockey club in Great Montana It was also a success story south of the border for along with Bill Howie Yanosik and a few other local helped the Montana club win the American amateur senior crown His playing career came to an end m the late '50's and he turned to coaching and organizing as his love of sports still stayed with him. COACHING AND ORGANIZING Hector's record as a coach has been upstaged by his playing career and very few people actually know of his achievements in the coaching field His coaching career spans a 27-year period which started in 1945 and ended in 1972. If winning championship titles are an indication of his HECTOR NEGRELLO coaching Hector was a good indeed. His record includes coaching Lethbndge's first Alberta midget hockey championship team in guiding Warner to an intermediate men's baseball title in taking the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Bantam A Reps to the provincial crown in leading the Lethbridge Miners to the Alberta junior baseball title and Canadian finals in 1971 and helping the Lethbridge Lakers in their first year of operations in 1972 He has coached a number of other teams throughout the but these are the ones he remembers best. Throughout the Hector has developed a philosophy of coaching in which he believes that a good coach is a person who can assess each individual on the team and who is able to get each playing to his potential As he put player on a team is different in many and if you can treat him as such he'll be giving you his best effort. the same I believe that a coach's primary objective is to develop a good attitude in all his players he has the right then learning new skills and having a desire to play will follow hand in hand Hector has also dabbled in the organizational field over the years and was one of the founders of the thriving Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association He has assisted the program in one way or another over the years and only broke away from the organization one year ago. seriously believe that I've paid my dues in promoting minor sports he said been a long time and I just want to sit back and he added it's been a long and rewarding time for Hector but a man who loves sports as much as he does probably won't be relaxing for very long.
