submitted by Reed Hennessy, Editor-in-Chief, The Playwickian, Neshaminy High School

“It is an extreme honor to be named head coach,” said Steve Wilmot, biology teacher and new head coach of the football team at Neshaminy High School.

“Neshaminy has such a rich football tradition that has included legendary coaches and players known throughout the whole state.”

Since the departure of former head coach Michael Frederick was announced last month the search for the new head coach has been led by assistant principal and athletic director Tom Magdelinskas. Familiarity with the team and community will certainly not be a problem for Wilmot as he has served as an assistant coach on the team for the past 20 years, most recently holding the position of offensive coordinator.
