Panthers End Historic Season 10-3
EUCLID, OHIO--This memorable season will go down in the record books as one of most successful football seasons for Euclid High School. The Panthers went 10-3, tied with Solon for the Greater Cleveland Conference championship and advanced to the third round of the Division I, Region 1 playoffs. Their third round playoff appearance was a first in Euclid High School history. The team was led by head coach Jeff Rotsky, winner of the Tony Fisher "Coach of the Year" award and named Coach of the Year for the Northeast Ohio Lakes All-District football team.
Euclid High School Athletic Director Patrick Higley said it best, "Thank you to the families and friends of Euclid for supporting the team throughout the year, especially last night in less than desirable conditions. This season, you witnessed history. Most importantly, however, thank you to the young men in the program. Thank you for your time, your commitment and desire to be the very best you could be, on and off the field. This year YOU made history!"
