Jason Rubin

#14 Class of 1992


Special Recognition


Denny was born in 1960 in Mechanicsburg.  He was one of five children born to Dot and Bill Wise.  He had two older sisters, an older brother, and a younger brother.  The family lived on a farm on Limekiln Road until 1971 when they moved to a farm on the Wertzville Road in the CV School District.

This is pretty much where Denny's story begins.  He and his brothers became students in the Cumberland Valley School District.  From day one, Denny embraced the CV culture and family.  While attending CV he was a wrestler and a football player and was everyone's friend and everyone's cheerleader!  His blood ran red and white.  He was an avid sports fan and could often be found watching and listening to multiple games at one time.  Even at a young age his favorite teams were the Phillies, Cowboys and Nittany Lions.  So, it was no surprise that after graduating from CV he attended Williamsport Area Community College where he wrestled and majored in Sports Broadcasting. 

After college he had a long career in the IT industry… but his passion still was sports; from professional to college to high school to youth programs. For 18 years he selflessly devoted himself to youth athletic programs.  Denny became known as Coach Wise to hundreds of young athletes in the Cumberland Valley Youth Football Programs.  But it didn't stop there.  He was also a supporter and volunteer coach in the East Pennsboro and Hampden Township Youth baseball and football programs.  He was an avid fan and supporter of youth athletic programs on the East and West Shores and tremendously impacted the lives of many young people. In addition to acting as a volunteer coach, Denny was actively involved in the CV Football Alumni Association. 

Denny's proudest, most satisfying role was as a father of two sons; Connor, who predeceased him and Aaron who is a senior at CV.

Whether you knew Dennis as Denny, Coach Wise, Dad, brother, friend or colleague, you knew that he would always be on your side and by your side!

Butch Bricker truly loved Cumberland Valley football and his players loved him too.  The defense captains that took his signals from the sideline knew in their hearts that Coach Bricker always did his best for every play he called, in every game he coached.

they will always remember.  After graduation, Tyler continued football and his education at Drake University where he spent four years studying business and creating life long relationships. His senior year Tyler started at running back and played his final season of football.   Tyler graduated from Drake University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in business. He pursued an opportunity to teach at an international school in China and taught there for a year.  During this time, Tyler took full advantage of his unique location and traveled extensively throughout Asia.
