First year head football coach at Tallmadge High School Alan Vanderink is excited about the 2016 season, and he says the staff and the players are getting ready to lace up the cleats and get after it in the Suburban League.
Alan spoke with us during Suburban League Media Day and he says the league is a competitive and well-balanced league.
"There's no weeks that you can take off," Vanderink said. "That's good for our coaches and our young people."
He says the community has been behind him 100 percent since he got the job at Tallmadge, coming over from the Copley staff, where he served as an assistant.
