Shamokin to hire new football coach today

Shamokin is scheduled to hire a new football coach when the school board conducts their monthly meeting tonight at the high school.

Sources close to the Coal Region Voice indicate that hire will be from out of the area.

Anyone that applies for any head football coaching job in the high school ranks doesn't doubt their own ability with x's and o's. What seperates the successful from the not successful is the ability to motivate 75 kids (junior high on up), parents, caretakers(we are living in those times) and assistant coaches for the greater good of the program. It sounds simple, but it is not easy.

Whoever is hired tonight, I wish them well. For the seniors, even though this is your third head coach in four seasons, it is time to show the leadership that maybe we lacking by your past school boards.
