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."
