Reinstate Keith Sachs as Head Coach of the Wantagh High School Varsity Football team
The Wantagh Board of Education is removing Keith Sachs as Head Coach of the Wantagh High School Varsity Football team. To date: - The Board has stated no reasons behind their decision - The Board has not indicated that they plan to do so - In this matter, The Board has egregiously failed in their duty as elected officials to keep their constituents and community members informed of their decisions and the rationale behind them. Since he first became the Head Coach of the Wantagh Varsity Football team, Keith Sachs has done far more than teach student-athletes the game of football. To his players, Mr. Sachs has been a role model for how to play the game the right way. His teams have built a reputation as being among the hardest working in Nassau County, and more importantly, among the classiest in Nassau County. Mr. Sachs has been a positive influence on the high school athletes who have had the privilege to play for him. Many of his former student-athletes would attest that they were boys when they joined his teams and young men by the time their high school athletics careers ended, largely due to the impact that Mr. Sachs had on their lives. This petition, directed at the Wantagh Board of Education, is in direct protest of the decision to remove Keith Sachs as the Head Coach of the Wantagh High School Varsity Football team and demands that he be reinstated to the Head Coach position which he has held and served with dedication and loyalty for over 15 years.
