The Southern Indians will be
looking for a new head football coach
as Mike Skrinjar has stepped down at
the helm of the Indians. Skrinjar was
26-25 in his five seasons with the
Indians, leading them to their first
and only playoff appearance in 2010.
Leetonia's Matt Altomare has resigned
as the head football coach of the Bears
today. Coach Altomare has been in the
Bears program for 27 years, including
the past 8 years as the head coach
where he has a 34-48 record including
playoff appearances in 2007 and 2008.
The Bears also won the ITCL Lower
Tier in 2007 under Altomare.
"I wanted to let you know, I have let my players and
administration know that I will not be reapplying for
the position of head football coach when it comes open
In 27 years being involved with the football
program at Leetonia I have been a part of
championship teams as a waterboy, player, assistant
coach and head coach. It is just time to move on.
I am grateful to have coached so many great young
men and am very thankful that 26 of the 27 years my
father and I have been together in this program.
I leave proud of what we have accomplished and
wish my young men nothing but luck in the future.
I have no plans for the future at this time." - Matt
Now that the 2014 high school football season has
finished with the state championships last week, we are
taking a brief review of each team in the ITCL to see
what were the positives, disappointments, and what to
expect next year. We will start with the last two teams in
the playoffs in Crestview and Western Reserve.
