The DuBois football team has a new coach in Frank Varischetti and his high-flying offense has already made its mark in District 10. The Beavers traveled to Corry on Saturday and won the Corry passing camp. Varischetti coached at Brockway the past four years where his offense transformed Derek Buganza into Pennsylvania’s all-time career passer with 9,752 yards.
DuBois returns senior leader Sean Sleigh at quarterback, who threw for 1,517 yards and 11 touchdowns last fall. DuBois beat Southwestern out of New York in the quarterfinals before knocking off Corry Black, which is a split squad Corry team, in the semifinals. The Beavers defeated Jamestown (N.Y.) in the championship. Corry Black and DuBois were the only District 10 teams to make the semifinals, while Girard and Eisenhower qualified for the quarterfinals. Warren defeated East in the 2010 championship.
