Upcoming BOE meeting CRUCIAL for future of WO Football

In case some are not aware, the WOBOE Interim Superintendent has opened a search for new WOHS athletic coaches and is requiring current coaches to reapply for their positions.

Inasmuch as the application process has been inconsistent and shockingly biased for and against certain coaches and programs, there appears to be a nefarious personal agenda at play, orchestrated by someone who is determined to oust WO Head Football Coach John Jacob at any cost to satisfy his own selfish desires.

I don't need to detail here the long list of ways Coach Jacob has been a teacher, mentor, father figure, and confidant to hundreds of young men. Suffice to say, anyone who knows John Jacob, whether as a former player, current player, friend, or supporter, knows what this man means to West Orange football.  

I implore everyone who cares about our football program to attend the BOE meeting on January 28 and voice their opinion in favor of retaining Coach Jacob and his staff. An overwhelming show of support can make a difference.
