He coached Pontiac High School and tells Stoney crowd they should be in the playoffs next year.
Stoney Creek High School football players met their new coach after school on Thursday. They heard their new leader's message loud and clear.

The Highlanders finish their postseason run with a 7-4 record overall and a new all-time rushing record holder.
The Adams High School Highlanders (7-4) were eliminated by the Port Huron Big Reds (10-1) in a 27-21 loss on the road during Round Two of the playoffs. Three straight flags started the game – all false starts on the Highlander offense and Big Red defense. It was a sign of things to come from the referee crew who called numerous penalties on the Highlander team. Most penalties were false starts caused by a noisy Big Red fan base, and many came on crucial plays, including what would have been a lead-recapturing touchdown in the fourth quarter. Adams head coach Tony Patritto summed it up, saying it was "the worst game they played all year." Best Play: Adams head coach Tony Patritto called a passing play on fourth-and-10 in the first half, …
