York’s Moorefield to coach North-South All-Star Game
YORK Longtime York Comprehensive High School football coach John Moorefield has been selected as an assistant coach for the annual North-South All-Star Football Game in December in Myrtle Beach.
In addition to his duties as assistant football coach, Moorefield serves as assistant athletic director at YCHS.
“It’s good to be recognized by my peers and to represent our school in the North-South game,” said Moorefield, a former York football lineman. “I know Dorman coach Dave Gutshall, the head coach for the North-South game, and look forward to coaching with him.”
Former York line coach Tom Weaver once said Moorefield’s blocking technique was among the best in the state.
YCHS athletic director Steve Boyd was elated with the announcement.
“Coach Moorefield is very deserving of this honor,” Boyd said. “He is an outstanding coach and could be a head coach if he wanted to. We’re excited that he will represent our school and community.”
