Coach Van Arsdale resigned today under fire of being ousted. I hope he is taking the rest of that lousy inept coaching staff with him. Especially Bellissimo. Bellissimo is doing the players a diservice every time he calls a play. Please get these athletes a qualified and capable staff. Bellissimo was one of the worst offensive coordinator's I've ever seen. He doesn't have the vision necessary to make game time adjustments.

its high school football..its really not a big deal. If he was fired for being a bad leader to the kids then thats great, if he was fired for a losing record, well then the athletic dept needs to get a life.

Default football

Are you kidding me? The response sounds like it is from a non-athletic person. It isn't just about loosing games, it is about making bad decisions on the field, and not teaching the athletes properly. It is about not just turning over the reigns to a staff of people that are not capable of getting the job done. It is about making the decisions personally. Many students rely on sports for scholarship money to college. They need to be put in the best possible situation. Sports is also a learning experience, and they should be taught the game properly. If you don't think it is about winning, then talk to the athletes and anyone else involved in sports, from Pop Warner to College.

as much of a die-hard college football fan as i am, i'd have to agree.




it's high school football. it's fun to win, it's fun to play, it's fun to cheer... but in the end, we've got much bigger fish to fry. name calling's not going to do a whole lot of good.

Not sure if your response was directed at me, but if it was I will let you know that I played football through college and lived in a household that was all sports all the time. My High School coach coached my the team for 20+ years and didn't have his first winning season until his 12th year or so. He then went on to have championship seasons and then back down to losing seasons. His teams that finished 1-8 still had players play Division I football (and two pro players). While coaching is vitally important for preparing an athlete to play a sport well, it's up to the individual to actually perform on the field. A team that doesn't do well on the field is usually one short of talent.

Sports is more than just about winning. Winning is easy. Losing with class is hard but it shows integrity and true sportsmanship. If one can do that, they have already won in a bigger game- life.

You are absolutely correct about losing with class, integrity, sportsmanship etc. However at the end of the day everyone wants to win, just like in the game of life. This is not about a lack of talent, this is about giving the athletes a fair chance by putting the right and a knowledgeable coaching staff in place. If they lacked talent then that would be a different story. Winning is fun, losing is not. You can lose a game, but still come out a winner, because you have learned something. This did not happen. They had wins, but learned nothing.
