August 9, 2012Tri-Eastern Conference
Perry Irwin knows he is stepping into a role full of high expectations.
The Centerville Bulldogs are the reigning champions in the Tri-Eastern Conference after a flawless 7-0 2011 season.
Those expectations didn’t scare Irwin from taking the job, though.
The first-year head coach knows the tradition Centerville football has, and with the returning resources, he looks to add on to it.
“Everything is going well so far,” Irwin said. “I’m really excited. I came into a situation where a lot of talent was left over, got a lot of starters back from last year.”
Irwin brings 15 years of assistant coaching experience to the Bulldogs, including plenty of time in the TEC as an assistant at Union County.
“The seniors we have back have very high expectations,” Irwin said. “I brought them in and interviewed each kid and, especially the older kids, they want to repeat the success from last year. Their goal is to be the first Centerville team to win a football sectional.”
