BOARDMAN — The Boardman High School football team has a new leader.
In a special meeting today (Jan. 12), board of education members unanimously approved hiring Seth Antram as the new football coach.
Antram spent the past 12 years working in education and coaching football on the high school and collegiate level, most recently as the Chaney High School football team’s offensive coordinator. He also spent three years assisting the Youngstown State University football team’s offense.
“We believe coach Antram will continue to build on the strong tradition of excellence in our football program with his great work ethic and attention to detail,” Athletic Director Marco Marinucci said in a news release. “He’s an X’s and O’s guy who knows football, and he comes to us with great recommendations from many very well respected coaches in the area.”
Antram will begin his coaching duties immediately and will join the teaching staff in the fall.
“I’m excited to join the Boardman School District and community, and I look forward to helping our student-athletes succeed both on the field and in the classroom,” Antham said.More than 40 people applied for the position after former Boardman High School coach Joe Ignazio resigned in December.
