The man responsible for the best stretch of football in Wapakoneta Redskins history is stepping away from the program, and his next step might be to where he came to Wapakoneta from.
After four seasons, Doug Frye is resigning as head varsity football coach at Wapakoneta High School, which could lead to a possible return to the St. Marys Roughriders.
Superintendent Shawn Brown on Friday morning confirmed that Frye has been recommended to the St. Marys board of education to fill St. Marys Memorial High School’s open head varsity football coaching position.
The Wapakoneta Redskins regrouped quickly after halftime after letting a first-half lead slip and cruised in the second-half to a 57-45 win over the Kalida Wildcats.
Wapak led 16-11 after the first period Saturday but Kalida made a run at the lead to trail by one, 27-26, at halftime.
Redskins varsity coach Rusty Allen explained his team’s adjustments for the second half which resulted in the double-digit win.
The Wapakoneta Redskins had a brief halt in their momentum Friday but they quickly rebounded in a 49-25 win over the St. Marys Roughriders in a Western Buckeye League varsity wrestling match at Wapakoneta High School.
The Redskins opened with a 6-0 lead after a pin by Jordan Kaeck against Eddie Reier at 132 pounds.
Trailing 1-0, Wapak’s Dylan Plaugher landed a reversal with 16.8 seconds left in the third period to give him a 2-1 win over Boston Hensley, giving Wapak a 9-0 lead.
