HS highlight reel: Vincentian football coach Storino let go

Vincentian dismissed Tim Storino as its football coach Monday, following a 2-7 record in its first season of WPIAL competition. The school started its football program in 2012, and the Royals played an exhibition schedule their first two seasons.

Storino was suspended for the 2013 season by the WPIAL for violating recruiting rules but was reinstated this season. Storino said he was asked to resign by Vincentian principal Ed Bernot but refused the offer.

“I love the players and I love the programs we were establishing. We were trying to instill the values and integrity of the game and teach them to play together and love each other and share the faith of the school. You wonder, what did I do wrong to be asked to leave?” Storino said. “Hopefully the program will stay strong. We’ve done some good things the last few years.”

Canon-McMillan also opened its head football coach position, which was held by interim coach Terry George, and Brownsville coach Von Braddock resigned after his team’s Week 10 nonconference game.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
