Cardinal O'Hara mourns passing of head coach Algeo


July 4, 2014

By Matt Smith

Danny Algeo, the head football coach at Cardinal O'Hara who was respected by his peers and beloved by hundreds of current and former players, died Thursday morning. He was 49.

Algeo was hospitalized Monday after suffering a heart attack.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved football coach, teacher and friend, Danny Algeo,” said a message posted on the O'Hara website. “Please pray for him, his family, his students and football team during this time.”

The two-time Philadelphia Catholic League championship-winning coach was set to embark on his 11th season coaching the Lions.  Algeo had 15 seasons under his belt as a head coach, with an overall record of 98-69. That included a Catholic League Red Division title in his first year at the Lions' helm in 2004. Algeo's 68 career victories is tied with George Stratts for second all-time in O'Hara history, trailing only Bob Ewing (116).  (click the blue headline for the full article)

Algeo forged an enduring family at O'Hara

July 4, 2014

By Matthew De George

Under ominous skies Thursday morning, there were few sounds at Cardinal O'Hara's football field.

The muggy air was bereft of the usual trappings of a summer morning — a chorus of barked-out encouragement for the scheduled preseason camp, the shrill command of a whistle prescribing the next drill, the cacophony of athletes panting, grunting and (dare it be said) even laughing their way through a workout.

What replaced that Thursday was a series of somber hugs, embraces of consolation, of remembrance, of loss. Instead of wiping away sweat from their faces, the O'Hara campers were left to clear away tears for a life deeply cherished.  (click the blue headline for the full article)

Gicking taking over at Marple Newtown

March 26, 2014

By Matt Smith

After months of rumor and speculation, Chris Gicking is finally coming home to Marple Newtown.

Gicking is the new head football coach of the Tigers.

Marplenewtownfootball.com announced the Gicking hiring, which was approved at the Marple Newtown School District board meeting Tuesday night.

Gicking spent the last 13 years as an assistant at Conestoga, helping the Pioneers win two Central League championships.

The 1995 Daily Times Player of the Year and star quarterback is the county's all-time leader in career passing yardage, a record that may never be broken. Gicking takes over a Tigers program that went 3-7 in 2013 under Ray Gionta, who stepped down in February to take the Sun Valley position. (click the blue headline for the article)

Gionta to take the helm at Sun Valley


March 3, 2014

By Laura Wiseley & Matt Smith

Delaware County Hall of Fame coach Ray Gionta will take the reins of the Sun Valley football program this season.

By a 7-0 vote Wednesday night, the Penn-Delco School District board of directors approved Gionta's hiring for the 2014 football season. He succeeds Jim Grugan, who spent three years at the helm of the Vanguards before resigning last year, citing personal and work reasons.

Gionta spent 11 seasons as the head coach of Marple Newtown, amassing a record of 65-55, including a 3-7 campaign last season. A standout at St. James High School and West Chester University, he also coached at Strath Haven, St. James and Boyertown high schools during his 39-year-coaching career. Gionta, who will remain in his faculty position as a physical education teacher at Marple Newtown, leaves the school as the winningest coach in program history.

Ridley's Batty steps aside

March 1, 2014

By Matt Smith

There might not be a living football coach in Delaware County who is as revered as Ralph Batty.

The longtime defensive coordinator at Ridley has been called a defensive mastermind and the best at what he does in Pennsylvania. He was the architect of some of the greatest defensive units the county has ever seen.

A living legend in Delco football, Batty helped guide the Green Raiders to three district championships and 18 Central League titles during his impressive tenure.

Batty decided it was time to leave and put away the clipboard Friday. He officially retired after 37 years of coaching.

"It was a hard decision for me to make. It's something that you kind of feel out as you coach all the years that I have,' he said. "You want to go out on your own terms and not get to the point where things have passed you by or anything like that. There's really no other explanation for it other than I had made the decision.  (click the blue headline for the article)

Britton at home as Springfield's new head coach

February 11, 2014

By Matt Smith

For Chris Britton, taking the helm at Springfield is a culmination of more than a decade of hard work and persistence.

Last week, Britton was named head coach of the Cougars nearly two months after Tom Kline stepped down following three successful seasons on Leamy Avenue.

Britton bleeds Cougar blue and gold. He was a center/linebacker at the school in the early '90s, and years later joined Mike Heath's staff from 2002-04. He stayed loyal to Springfield as a member of the Chris Bell (2005-07), Dan Ellis (2008-10) and Kline (2011-13) regimes.

Finally, Britton is in charge of a high school football program. And Springfield is where he always envisioned it happening. (click the blue headline for the article)

Beaty is Chester's new boss

January 31, 2014

Rick O'Brien, Inquirer Staff Writer

Tony Beaty, who was in charge at Prep Charter from 2009 to 2012, has been tabbed as the new football coach at Chester.

"It's a job that few people wanted," he said. "But I'm excited about the challenge. Chester is a unique place. We want to put the team back on the map."

Beaty, 45, officially begins his new job Monday. He spent the last year focusing on his personal-training business.
