PASCACK VALLEY -

A New Jersey high school basketball coach celebrated a major milestone Thursday after securing 1,000 wins as a coach.

Jeff Jasper coaches the Pascack Valley High School girls basketball team. 

The high school gym was packed Thursday night in anticipation of the 1,000th win. There were signs and T-shirts made for the occasion.

Jasper says that the best part of coaching is all the people he meets along the way.

“I just saw the faces of all these kids…who have just become such great people,” he says. “They’ve so enriched my life. They think they learned something from me. They have no idea what I have gained from them.”

Jasper is the first coach to reach 1,000 wins for a girls’ basketball team.
