Students present petition to School Board in support of Football Coach

Dylan Hopkins, a high school senior, presented a petition of a hundred signatures to the Chamberlain School Board Monday night requesting they reconsider the contract renewal of Head Football Coach and PE Teacher, George Caine. A group of eight Chamberlain football players attended the meeting with Hopkins. Caine was notified by administration last week that his contract would not be renewed. The reason for non-renewal was not disclosed.

Hopkins told the board how he felt Caine had a positive impact on the football program and the student body.

“Before he came to Chamberlain the football team was clicky, different groups with different goals. On the first day he had seven letters on the board FA-M-I-L-Y. He pushed that on us and promoted us as brothers both on and off the field. He wanted us to grow together.”
