Written by Joe Koch on .

Joe Koch profiles new Shaler football coach Jon LeDonne.

"Jon LeDonne is familiar with big challenges and how to overcome them.

He believes the lessons he's experienced in the classroom and on the football field will serve him well as the new head football coach at Shaler Area High School.

"This is a program that has experienced some hard times lately," said LeDonne, who succeeded Chris Siegle after he left Shaler to become an assistant at Duquesne University. "Shaler has had some successful teams in the past, and taking this job gives me the opportunity to rebuild the program.""
