Congratulations to head football coach Kurt Richardson, staff, and student athletes for winning the third State Division 1 Football Title in five years. Some 30 years ago the head football coach resigned, leaving an opening for a head coach position.
On my desk was a letter from Gus Birtsas, principal at Sashabaw Junior High School. The letter simply said “Kurt Richardson has to be hired as the head football coach.”
The rest is history.
In my opinion, the major reason why Clarkston won this championship was that they were well coached and self disciplined.
