Five of Ambridge High’s top football players have transferred
The Ambridge High School Football Team has taken a hard hit with the recent transfers of five of the Bridgers’ top players. A few more also might leave.
Included among those who already have transferred are the team’s starting quarterbacks, leading rusher, leading receiver and an all-conference linebacker. Two of the players have transferred to perennial power Aliquippa. The exodus leaves newly hired coach Terry George baffled.
“I’ve been coaching football since 1981 and have never seen anything like this, not even at the college level,” said George, who was hired in mid-March. “This many kids transfer, and they’re mostly skill position players.
“I can’t answer why. You draw your own conclusion. I can’t sit here and say they left because we don’t have hardly any linemen returning next year. I think they felt next year was going to be a really rough season.”
