Port Clinton City School District announces the selection of Beau Carmon as the new Head Football Coach. Coach Carmon was selected from a field of over fifty highly qualified applicants to lead the Redskins into the new era of Port Clinton Football. The coach selection committee consisted of representatives from administration, parents and alumni.
Coach Carmon was previously a Head Coach at Fostoria City Schools and Defensive Coordinator at Tiffin Calvert. He was a player at Tiffin Columbian and went on to be a three-year letter winner at the University of Findlay, playing left tackle. In addition to his duties as Head Football Coach, Mr. Carmon will be a Health Teacher at Port Clinton Middle School.
When asked why he is taking the position, Coach Carmon stated, “First and foremost was the administration’s commitment to both academics and athletics. That is incredible and a big draw as well as their dedication to the district and students. The opportunity to raise my family in the community of Port Clinton and for my kids to attend the new schools is impossible to turn away.” Joining Coach Carmon in Port Clinton are his wife Ashley, three-year-old daughter Ella and five-month-old son Lane. Mrs. Carmon, a kindergarten teacher at Fostoria City Schools, is just as excited as the new coach about the move to Port Clinton. “She’s a football coach’s wife.She understands the time commitment. When the call came through offering me the job she was just as excited as I am.” The Carmon’s have put their house on the market and look forward to relocating to Port Clinton.
The new coach has a program philosophy that will be instilled in the Redskin football players. “We will develop a Redskin football player as a student-athlete first. Our mission is to send better human beings out of our program than when they came in. We will develop a winning mental attitude in each player through gaining the players’ confidence. We will promote a positive relationship between all players, coaches, and the community. Football will be fun as well as rewarding through preparation on and off the field.” He is so eager to meet his new players that Coach Carmon plans to be in Port Clinton on Wednesday to meet the team and will later meet with each player individually.
Patrick D. Adkins, Superintendent of Schools stated, “Coach Carmon was our selection committee’s unanimous, number-one choice as the gentleman we want to see lead our football program. He has a clearly defined plan on how to increase numbers across our program and we believe his enthusiasm will be contagious amongst our players.”
