The Tribune-Democrat and Somerset Daily American each had profiles this morning of new Shade head football coach Gene Boley.

For the avid reader of this site (and we know that’s all of you!), you can recall that we broke the news to you about this hire in late May. We were also the first to give you a feature on Conemaugh Valley’s new coach, and broke the news of Rockwood’s new boss.


Co-head coaches laid a solid foundation

In District 5, Football, Rockwood, Turkeyfoot Valley, WestPAC on June 29, 2009 at 11:25 pm

For five years, co-head coaches Jon Hale and Adam Rullo built a Rockwood football program.

In that time, the roster expanded from its original size of 16, the team made three playoff appearances and the groundwork has been laid for successful seasons to come. Now, the young coaches are moving on, leaving the reins to longtime assistant Jerry Kaizen.

But Rullo and Hale aren’t going far, and they certainly won’t be without a close eye on the program they developed. More…

The journey has come full circle for 43-year-old Jerry Kaizen.

One of the early supporters of bringing football back to Rockwood Area High School, Kaizen was named the team’s varsity head coach earlier this summer.

Kaizen takes over after the departure of co-head coaches Adam Rullo and Jon Hale, who led the team for the past five years. More…

The Berlin boys and girls track teams had little trouble fending off Rockwood and Southern Fulton to win their season opener at home on Thursday.

Rockwood softball set to soar

In Rockwood, Softball, WestPAC on March 21, 2009 at 6:00 am

The Rockwood softball team finished a game shy of the playoffs last season, finishing with an 8-10 record. But looking beyond the surface, a striking statistic stands out. The Rockets lost six games by a single run.

It certainly made for some tough moments, but third-year coach Jon Hale thinks it also made for some tough competitors. More…

Don’t miss a chance Sunday to visit with United States Olympian Sam Sacksen, who will be at the Johnstown Chiefs game signing autographs before the 2:35 faceoff with Elmira.

Sacksen finished 18th in the modern pentathalon during the Beijing Olympics, the best of any American. He’s a 2004 graduate of Rockwood High School, and wrote a great series of articles for local newspapers during his time in China.
