Moyer gets nod as Redskins coach

The Wapakoneta City Schools Board of Education approved the contract of head high school football coach Travis Moyer with a vote of 5-0 during a regular board meeting at Cridersville Elementary School on Tuesday evening.

“We are extremely thankful for this opportunity and excited to be a part of this community,” Moyer said, addressing the board members. “We’re going to work extremely hard to make all of you proud, and we’re very excited and humbled to be here.”

Wapakoneta City Schools Athletic Director Brad Rex and Superintendent Keith Horner agreed that Moyer was the best person for the job.

“He has a great personality, one that we felt would fit in with our community,” Rex said. “He’s also tremendously organized, and with that, we feel like we aren’t going to miss a beat from where our football program is. We felt he could come in, take over and keep us at the top."
