On this edition of the High School Football America Radio Show, host Jeff Fisher reveals HSFA’s 2011 National Coach of the Year.
Al Fracassa of Brother Rice, who brought his team back from a 4-4 start to win the 2011 Division 2 Michigan state football championship, is this year’s honoree. In addition to the incredible comeback, Coach Fracassa won his 400th career game during the season.
Also on the show: recently retired Judson High School (Texas) head coach Jim Rackley; Vinnie Ascolese, who retired at the end of the season from North Bergen High School as the third winningest high school football coach in New Jersey history; and Mike Brennan, who will serve as head coach of the Pennsylvania All-Stars in this year’s Big 33 Classic in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Brennan, who is the head coach at Blue Mountain High School (PA), will try to snap a three-game losing streak against the Ohio All-Stars.
