Franklin Regional Hires Getsy
Getsy has big shoes to fill as he will be replacing the Hall of Fame coach, Greg Botta. We had the pleasure of working with Coach Getsy when he was the head football coach for Charleroi. His first year in Charleroi, in 2018, Getsy’s first opponent was the Washington Prexies. This was no small task, as Wash High was coming into the game undefeated for several years in conference play. However, the Cougars were stacked and ready to rumble. Getsy had the privilege of coaching a group of lifelong friends that were accustomed to winning. They wanted nothing more than to teach Wash High a lesson. Getsy received his first win as a head coach that evening, as the Cougars managed to put up a score of 64 to 33 and pounded the Prexies into submission.

While at Charleroi for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Coach Getsy put up an impressive record of 17 and 5. As a result the team also made it to the WPIAL playoffs both years. A head coach can only do so much though. He was fortunate enough to coach some amazing athletes such as Geno Pelligrini, Dakota Romantino, Cole Perry, Michael Polinski, Jonathan Vargo, Colton Kisner, Ian Williams, Marty Foster, Stanley Hughes, Legend Davis, Braden Mihalcin, Ethan Codeluppi, and many others! It was a unique and talented group of players and coaches that we will never forget.
Coach Getsy we wish you the best of luck, hope you get tons of wins and most importantly have fun!
