It’s getting closer and closer to the start of high school football in our area once again, with first games set to kickoff one month from tomorrow. It’s also the time where many schools with head coaching vacancies are shoring up those holes in their staff.
Last week, it was reported by the Trempealeau County Times that Jeff Wiseman will be the new head coach at GET, replacing long time head man Jon Steffenhagen. Now today Central athletic director Mark Ambrose tells us that the Riverhawks will unveil their new head coach tomorrow. The school will have an announcement ceremony tomorrow morning in the high school commons. Former head coach Tony Servais resigned earlier this month to take the position of dean of students at the school. He had coached for the last 10 seasons at Central, taking over for Dave Cayler and winning a Mississippi Valley Conference title in 2012.
In his final season, Servais piloted the Riverhawks to a 4-1 overall record, and subsequently set up now-senior quarterback Mason Herlitzke to become one of the most dynamic football players in the conference this upcoming fall. Overall, Servais was an even 47-47 for the school.
