Congratulations to the Conemaugh Township Indians, the District 5 Class A champions after a thrilling victory over Windber on Friday night!

We told you it was going to be a good one, and we weren’t wrong. It came down to Scott Thomas’ field goal in the waning seconds to give the Indians the title, 21-20.

Be sure to keep an eye on this page, as we let you know about any future broadcasts involving the Indians, who get a week off before facing the District 7 (WPIAL) champion.

WJAC picks up on Shade coach

In District 5, Football, Shade, WestPAC on August 26, 2009 at 8:47 am

WJAC-TV paid a visit to Shade’s football camp and profiled new head coach Gene Boley during Tuesday’s newscast.

It was a pretty nice piece from Matt Maisel, detailing Boley’s “unconventional” methods! Most importantly though, Maisel mentions that Shade has better than 40 kids out for football, the type of numbers Boley was looking for when QZ93 Sports profiled the new coach several months ago.

In District 5, Football, WestPAC, Windber on August 25, 2009 at 9:26 am

The Windber Ramblers got their time to shine on WJAC-TV’s “Two-A-Days” on Monday.

The Ramblers are positioned for a pretty good campaign, returning many of the key components from last year’s District 5 championship squad.

TV takes time at Township

In Conemaugh Township, District 5, Football, Forest Hills, WestPAC on August 19, 2009 at 3:09 pm

WJAC-TV turned its cameras to Conemaugh Township on Tuesday, profiling the Indians as part of its “Two-A-Days” series leading up to the football season.

Check out the video by following the link! The other team profiled on Tuesday was the Laurel Highlands’ Forest Hills Rangers.

Unlike Portage, it doesn’t appear that WJAC-TV has any extra “raw” video with Conemaugh Township players and coaches.

New faces in many places this fall

In District 5, Football, Soccer, Volleyball on July 29, 2009 at 7:33 am

Christina Dunmyer of The Daily American takes a comprehensive look at coaches around the Somerset County sports scene in today’s editions.

In addition to the coaching changes first reported here, Jerry Kaizen taking over football at Rockwood and Gene Boley assuming control of football at Shade, the article notes several significant changes among some of the other sports. More…

Shade coach just one of several changes

In Conemaugh Valley, District 5, Football, Rockwood, Shade, WestPAC on July 9, 2009 at 8:28 am

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…
