Price returns to head coaching post at Avenal

Charles Price will return as head coach of the Avenal Buccaneer football team this Saturday against Immanuel.

“It feels great being back with the team,” Price said. “We have a family atmosphere and we’re working on moving in a positive direction.”

Last season Price coached the Bucs to a 9-4 record and a Division VI Valley Championship appearance.

However this past offseason, he received a promotion at work to a very demanding fiscal manager position and made a difficult decision to step down as head coach.

Mike Crews was hired in his place and coach the Bucs to a 2-1 record over the first three games of 2015. However this past week, Crews was no longer the head coach.

Neither Price nor sources close to the program had any insight to Crews’ departure.

When Price heard about the opening, he felt he needed to step back in as the head coach of the program.

“It’s been a whirlwind the last few days but we’re getting everyone back on track and focused on what we have ahead of us which is a tough schedule,” Price said.
