AUDIO STVM Fired Up For Firestone

August 26 at Green Street, the St. Vincent St. Mary Fighting Irish will be taking on Firestone in a "west-side" battle to start the high school football season.

First-year head coach Marcus Wattley joined the Sam Bourquin Show Tuesday to talk about the upcoming season and his transition from assistant coach under the now-retired Dan Boarman to taking the reins as the head man.

Wattley says it's been a pretty solid transition, and it's been enjoyable to work with coaches and players who understand the expectations at St. Vincent-St. Mary.

"The kids are buying in the coaches are buying in and working hard, so we're ready," he said.

Wattley got the job in January, and he says he's been anxious to get out there and lead the Irish against Firestone in Week 1. 

 With offensive playmakers like Malik Wooldridge,  DeAmonte King, and quarterback Donte Taylor doing what they do on Friday nights for the Green and Gold, it will be tough on opponents says Coach Wattley.

 He says Firestone poses some challenges for the Irish on Friday night.

"They're good defensively, they have some athletes at the outside linebacker and quarterback position," he said. "Coach Mitchell is a good coach and he'll have those guys prepared on Friday."
