For the second time in two seasons, Pottstown’s football program will be led by a new head coach.
Mark Fischer, the offensive coordinator at Phoenixville the past two seasons, was voted in as the new head coach at Pottstown’s school board meeting Monday night, ending the school’s coaching search after the departure of Gary Rhodenbaugh.
“I’m very excited,” Fischer said. “Pottstown drew me in. I love the close community they have there. When I was at Phoenixville two years ago and we played at Pottstown, I just saw all the community members walking in and how supportive they were. That was one thing that stuck with me and made me want to apply.”
Fischer becomes the third head coach to lead the Trojans in as many seasons. He replaces Rhodenbaugh, who resigned after one season after the Trojans struggled in a 2-9 season (1-4 Pioneer Athletic Conference). Rhodenbaugh had served as the Trojans’ offensive coordinator the year prior.
