After eight years of leading Schuylerville’s
football team, Greg O’Connor is stepping down as coach.
“Coach O’Connor has been a dedicated influential role model for our football players and program,” said Athletic Director Heath Morris.
High School Principal Matthew Sickles agreed, adding, “We appreciate the positive influence Greg has had on our student athletes. He’ll continue this tradition in the classroom as he moves through his 12th year of teaching mathematics.”
O’Connor has led the Black Horses squad since 2004. Before that, he was assistant coach from 2000 to 2003. O’Connor leaves behind a winning record of 60-28 overall, including a 21-3 record during his first two seasons. Coach O’Connor also led Schuylerville to two Class C sectional championships, as well as successfully shepherding the team as it moved from Class C to higher level Class B competition.
“I’ve had the opportunity to coach not only good football players, but also outstanding young men,” O’Connor said. “I’ve enjoyed the hard work and will miss the competition and camaraderie.”
The district is in the process of the advertising the head coach position and expect to have it filled by mid-February. Morris and Sickles will conduct the search process and interview candidates.
