For the first G&G Fitness Equipment Coach of the Week, Sam and Brad caught up with Jeff Twiddy, the new head football coach of the Louisville Leopards.
Twiddy said that the timing was right for him to take that job and work in a community that loves football.
"I'm pumped because it reminds me of Mogadore, and football is the most important thing there, and as a football coach you can't ask for anything more than that."
Coach Twiddy graduated from Mogadore High School and was previously coaching at Byesville before taking the job with the Leopards.
