Ross names new football coach


Kenyon Commins hired as Ross High School Varsity Football Coach

During its regular Board of Education Meeting on January 27th, Ross Local School District Administration and Board of Education announced the appointment of Mr. Kenyon Commins as the District’s new Head Varsity Football Coach.  Commins replaces Brian Butts, who resigned after leading the program for 11 seasons.

Commins was selected from a tremendous pool of experienced and well-qualified candidates.  Coach Commins brings 15 years of coaching experience with him.  He spent the last 4 years at Ross as the Offensive Coordinator, Receiver’s coach, and JV Assistant coach.  Prior to Ross he was the Varsity Offensive Coordinator and Running Backs coach at Oak Hills High School from 2006-2011, and at Mt. Healthy High School from 2001-2005 as the Running Backs coach and Offensive Coordinator.  Following his approval, Commins stated, “I plan to assemble a top notch coaching staff, and develop the program from the youth league through high school with outstanding technique and fundamentals. Our goal is to put a team on the field that takes advantage of our skills and competes on every play, every day, and every game to the best of our ability.”

When asked about Commins’ appointment, Athletic Director Brian Gunter stated, “After an extensive search and interviewing many strong candidates for the position, Kenyon was selected based on his knowledge of the game, his total dedication to our district and community, and his strategic plan to make the Ross football program successful.”  Gunter indicated that he was looking forward to working with Coach Commins as he begins the mission of building the Ross football program back to prominence.
