I think this thing over @ OA is something that could really take off. Any thoughts from Brookville on this?

Oldenburg could be a problem for Franklin County. What makes you think players won't consider transferring there to play?

I think it is pretty crappy for a teacher in our district signs on to coach in a competing school. They should really think about who pays their bills. I just don't think our kids should be taught in class by a guy who is going to do his best to kick their butts on Friday night.

Where does he teach? Futhermore, if he was given the job here in FC, I'm sure he would have taken it. Quit griping about everything.

He teaches at FC and can do whatever he wants in his spare time. It's not like he is the head coach for another school. I don't blame him for not wanting to be a part of the fiasco they've got going on over at Franklin County.

OA announces new football coach
Gillman to lead new program

The Herald-Tribune

BATESVILLE — Oldenburg Academy will begin its first year of high school football in the 2013 season under the direction of Franklin County High School graduate Wes Gillman, according to a press release from OA marketing coordinator Kayla Wessling.

Gillman is a science/engineering faculty member at OA and will lead the Twisters’ new program. As they will compete on select Monday and Friday nights beginning in 2013, according to the release.

Gillman's credentials include prior coaching experience at Union County High School and current responsibilities of leading a St. Michael youth football team in Brookville. Gillman was also the 1995 Phil Eskew Mental Attitude Award recipient in his high school career while leading Franklin County to a state championship game appearance. Gillman has a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Butler University, according to Wessling.

OA Athletic Director, Ryan Brammer stated "Coach Gillman's experience and desire to lead the Twisters with a 'building from the ground up' approach solidified him as our guy. He brings to the table the right enthusiasm, knowledge, care, sportsmanship, and tactful approach that is needed for the undertaking of the contact sport and has assembled a support staff that has an extraordinary amount of successful football coaching and playing tenure."

Joining Gillman as assistant coach will be longtime assistant and prior head coach of Franklin County, Brice Sayne. Sayne was a four year starter for Earlham College as well as a member of the Earlham College Athletic HOF. He has over 20 years of experience coaching football and wrestling at the high school level.

Justin Seals and Kevin McDonnell will join as an assistant coaches.

Seals is a 1993 graduate of Franklin County High School and was an all-state linebacker. He spent seasons at Rose Hulman as a football team captain and starting linebacker and earned his BA from Wilmington College. Seals is currently employed at Hill-Rom.

McDonnell is a 1998 graduate of Notre Dame and had four years of kicking duties for the Irish, according to Wessling. McDonnell is currently employed at Hill-Rom.

The best thing to happen to Franklin COunty. This way the player can be recruited. And the coaches son won't be in the way. Grider's son sucked.

Hey shocked - any idea how many teachers at FC don't actually live in the county? There are more out of county than in. They coach, they teach because that is their job and believe it or not, they like it at FC. Then they go home and support their kids who go to other schools. They also coach youth league, CYO, etc.

Use your brain. The contract does not tell a teacher that they can't do anything without FC

I fully realize that their contract doesn't say they can't do it, I just think it is wrong. And this isn't a coach who lives somewhere else, he lives here, works here, and doesn't have any school age kids. He formerly coached here but QUIT. I just don't see how the student athletes can have an opposing coach in their classroom. It's divided loyalty.

I'm not saying anything bad about it. Don't get me wrong, I am saying there is nothing wrong with teaching one place and coaching another. It all depends on the vacancies. You love FC but had to find a position elsewhere until position opened here. Nothing wrong with that
