CANFIELD, OH- The list of South Range Football Head Coaches just received another gold star for their program on Wednesday night.  After board approval, David Rach has been chosen to take over the whistle for the Raider Football Program.

Rach served as the Defensive Coordinator for the State Championship squad, as well as in years prior, and is a 2007 graduate of South Range, and is regarded highly as one of the program’s elite players in the five decades of existence.

“I am so thankful to the South Range administration and board of education for awarding me the opportunity to lead the South Range Football program moving forward,” said David Rach. “My family and I would also like to thank Coach, Kelli, and the entire Yeagley family for all of their love, support, guidance, and friendship over the years and throughout this transition,” Rach added.

Dan Yeagley, who retired from the position just a month ago speaks highly of his former player and coach who now takes the torch for the burgundy and gold, “Dave is a great leader and coach, and an even better young man.  He really cares about the players and he has been a huge part of our success over the years.  He and his family have been very supportive of South Range, and I am looking forward to watching the program grow under his leadership.”

Rach will take over the Raiders coming off of a State Championship in Division V, but will have his hands full in replacing 20 seniors from the class.  It is expected that South Range will also keep the majority, if not all of the coaching staff intact for the upcoming season.

The first-year coach undoubtedly seems excited about representing the next generation of Raider Coaches, “Thank you to the players, parents, coaching staff, and entire ‘Raider Family’ for inspiring me, believing in me, and trusting me. I am humbled, proud, and so excited to be your coach. Go Raiders!”

South Range opens up their 2023 campaign against the Springfield Tigers in August.
