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.
Stats of the day
Combined losses for the eight WPIAL Class AA football quarterfinalists this season.
State titles for the Sewickley Academy boys soccer team, which earned a first-round win Tuesday.
Latrobe hosting WPIAL quarterfinal contest
Latrobe will host a WPIAL Class AA football quarterfinal playoff game Friday night but not where the Wildcats typically play their games.
Washington and Apollo-Ridge will play at Rossi Field, the school’s new turf field at the high school, rather than nearby Latrobe Memorial Stadium, which has natural grass.
