Statement from the Family of Coach Bobby Middendorf

Pickerington Tiger Football, Baseball, and Wrestling mourn the loss of Coach Bobby Middendorf. Bobby passed away unexpectedly on March 18th, 2023. Bobby leaves behind his wife of 26 years, Kelli, and sons Keaton (PHSC Class of '19) and Kasey (PHSC Class of '23).

Bobby was a 1985 graduate of Pickerington High School, where he wrestled for Pickerington High School under coach Nick Burgess. Bobby coached Wrestling at Pickerington High School Central since 2001 and Football and Baseball since 2003.

Coach Middendorf made an impact on and off the field, leaving behind many coaches he worked with and players he loved, whether in travel leagues, PYAA, Ridgeview Junior High, or Pickerington High School Central. 

The Middendorf Family would like to thank the PLSD Community for their support, love, and prayers.
