The Grove City School District recently held a work session and discussed Sam Mowrey as the new head coach of the football program. Mowrey was an assistant coach for Jeff Bell, who resigned earlier in the offseason. Grove City’s next public school board meeting is on Monday where Mowrey will likely be submitted to the board for approval.

Mowrey becomes the third new head football coach in District 10 this offseason. Adam Walstrom was hired at Corry and Brad Orlando was hired at McDowell. The Harbor Creek and Iroquois jobs are currently open.
