Bristor sets it straight

Trinity baseball coach Levi Bristor wants to set the record straight and put an end to the rumors he has, was or will consider taking the head baseball coaching position at Canon-McMillan High School.

"I have not been approached by Canon-McMillan nor have I applied for the job at Canon-McMillan," Bristor said Monday night.

Bristor said the rumors, started by anonymous posters on this web site, that he was leaving Trinity for Canon-McMillan with the start of the season (March 20) days away filtered to his players.

Canon-McMillan won the 2008 PIAA Class AAAA championship and, just days before the first day of practice for the 2009 season, coach Steve Bucci resigned citing family reasons.

Trinity lost to West Allegheny in the WPIAL Class AAA championship and reached the PIAA semifinals before losing a difficult 1-0 game to Somerset.

"Nothing against Canon-McMillan but my whole goal in coaching is to be Trinity's head baseball coach," Bristor said. "That's what I am and that's what I intend to be."

According to a good source within the Trinity Baseball organization, I just posted this earlier tonight:
Coach Bristor has not been approached about the head coach position nor has he applied for the job.
However, I was then afformed that Coach Ryan Daloia, (Bristor's Assistant Coach), was contacted by Guy Montecalvo and has since applied for the position and is expected to be named the new CM Coach this week.
Is this true?

Coach Bristor and I did not speak about Coach Daloia.

Didn't Bucci resign on Feb. 18th? It's suprising that they still haven't named a coach. I thought they could call emergency board meetings to do this? It's not like he resigned two days before try-outs. He gave them 2 weeks notice. I just don't understand why they are dragging their heels.

Not sure if you call an emergency meeting to hire a baseball coach. Let's keep things in perspective.

Just thought I would throw my 2 cents in about Bristor. He was an assistant coach at W&J my freshman year and then I played part of an adult baseball season with him...he is a great guy who knows baseball inside and out. I believe that he graduated from Trinity so I don't see him going to CM to coach or anywhere for that matter any time soon.

I would be really surprised if Daloia took that job. Especially with being a football coach at Trinity and a teacher. I think this is a lot of BS,
