Avella tables football hire

Avella football remains without a head coach after the school board tabled a decision to fill the position during Wednesday night's meeting.

It marks the second time the decision has been tabled.

Previously, Avella graduate Ryan Cecchini's name was on the agenda to be hired. Several current players are rallying for an assistant coach.

Frank Gray spent the past three seasons as the Eagles football coach, and he helped keep the program afloat during some difficult times. More of those could be on the horizon as rumors of dropping the football program in favor of soccer have swirled for months.

I really hope they don't drop their football program but if they do drop it. Drop the program tomorrow or the next day. It would allow fellow Blackhills members to find another opponent to fill their schedules.
