Brian Coleman for Black Tiger Football Head Coach
As alumni of Cuyahoga Falls High School—and members of the Metro Champion championship teams in the 90’s—it has been difficult for us to witness the downfall of the football program over the last several years. The joy of attending games at Clifford Stadium has been replaced by a dread of watching out beloved Black Tigers committing the two unforgivable sins as laid out by our coach Don Ross… being “out hit and out hustled”. Over the last three years there has been no discernible progress on the field—in fact one could fairly say that there has been a high level of regression—and we feel it is time for a change in leadership.
The perfect candidate to affect positive change both on the football field and in the community is Brian Coleman. I’m hoping that you are familiar with who Brian is and his long list of accomplishments. However, in case you are not, we’ve taken the liberty of outlining them for you below:
-Four year letter-man in football at CFHS (1991-1994)
-Named “strongest football player in the country” in 1994
-Four year member of the football team at Syracuse University and two year starter where he played in the Orange and Fiesta Bowls
-Assistant Coach at Nordonia HS
-Strength and Conditioning Coach at powerhouse Upper Arlington H.S
Yet his resume isn’t the only reason that we feel he is the perfect remedy for a program in shambles. It is his deep connection with the community, unbridled enthusiasm and commitment to excellence that truly places him above the fray. We are well aware that middle school student/athletes are often poached by area parochial schools (or even more concerning the likes of Woodridge) and we have no doubt whatsoever that Brian’s magnetic personality and pedigree can stop the bleeding and keep these kids in the Cuyahoga Falls school system.
Below are signatures from fellow alumni who are also tired of being embarrassed on Friday nights.
Lets bring pride back to Clifford Stadium.
