Former NFLers Having Success as High School Football Coaches

High School Football America

Last weekend was a special one for two former NFL players, who as high school head coaches, took their respective programs to state championship games.

Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Don Beebe led Aurora Christian to its first-ever state title beating Mount Carmel 34-7 to win the Illinois Class 3A championship.  In Missouri, former Pro Bowl quarterback Gus Frerotte, in his first year as head coach at John Burroughs, led his team to a runner-up finish in Class 3.

Both Beebe and Frerotte will be guests on tonight's High School Football America radio show starting at 7PM Eastern Time.

They will be joined by Phil Stambaugh, head coach at Pius X in Pennsylvania.  Stambaugh was a quarterback with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Pius X, one of the smallest high school football teams in America, is seeking its first-ever state title.  Friday night, the Royals, who are the subject of a documentary by yours truly, will face state powerhouse Southern Columbia in a 1A quarterfinal match-up.
