Drew Karpen profiles new Burrell football coach Dave Bellinotti.
"More than likely, when a high school football team has a winless season, the head coaching job could be imperiled.
Last year Burrell High School finished last in the Class AA Allegheny Conference with an 0-9 record and, not surprisingly, the district school board voted to open the varsity coaching position occupied by Kevin Horwatt. He had posted an 18-11 mark in the preceding three seasons.
In a perfect world, the Buccaneers would find a candidate with a championship pedigree and close ties to the community.
Evidently, the stars were aligned when the district announced Dave Bellinotti as the new coach of the Bucs."
