ALMONT — Almont Varsity Football Defensive Coordinator Ritchie Feys was named the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association Division 5 Assistant Coach of the Year this past week.
This marks the second time Feys has earned the honor. He also was recognized in 2014.
Feys is coming from a successful 2018 campaign which saw Almont post a 9-0 regular season record (believed to be the 10th time in school history their varsity has ended the regular season portion of their schedule unbeaten) as well as a pacesetting 7-0 showing versus Blue Water Area Conference foes.
Almont also reached the Division 5 state playoffs, advancing to the district championship clash where they were defeated by Frankenmuth.
The team finished the 2018 campaign as owners of a 10-1 overall mark.
