Alexandria's Matt Hoelscher has known he wanted to be a head coach since his days playing for former Cardinal boys' basketball coach John Holsten at Jefferson High School.


Now at age 31, Hoelscher will get that chance after taking over as the head boys' basketball coach in Osakis. Chris Stroup opened the door for him with his decision to step away this past spring after leading the Silverstreaks for 10 seasons. It was a door Hoelscher was happy to walk through.
