Sellers update

May 13, 2008

Apparently Coach Sellers is now ditching Kingsley for Tennessee? From the comments of the last entry:

Sellers asked Kingsley for an extension last week on Monday because his wife had applied for a job out of state and was waiting for her final offer. This last week he accepted and then on Friday he told Kingsley that he had to pull out at the last minute. Those RE boys worked their butts off to get the story right only to have the game change plays at the last minute. Sometimes a guy just has to do what is best for family.


Sellers resigns from St. Francis

May 7, 2008

Josh Sellers has left his position as football coach at Traverse City St. Francis (thanks to Matt for the link.) I don’t think he’d leave unless he had another job in place, and the Rec-Eagle makes it sound like he’s getting the position at Kingsley. If I recall, Coach Sellers lived in Kingsley and commuted to Traverse, so this would make a lot of sense.

It’s too bad for Saint Francis. Mr. Sellers was wonderful to me when I was a student there, and I can’t remember anyone having negative feelings about him. He rejuvenated athletics at the school.

I think the brothers Heintz should apply for the job.

The top guy on my board from Chadron State

May 5, 2008

Look at this guy.

Look at his numbers: “a 40-yard dash that was timed between 4.33 and 4.38 seconds, recording a vertical jump of 38 1/2 inches and bench-pressing 225 pounds 20 times” and “7,962 yards in four seasons” at the DTwo level. Holy Barry, those are crazy numbers.

He’s also 5′ 7.5″. Can he make it in the pros?
