A Bucks County private school’s football team might be seeing some significant chances to their operations in the near future. Tom Moore wrote about the school’s team for the Bucks County Courier Times.
The George School, located at 1690 Newtown Langhorne Road in Newtown, has a football team that has been active since 1923. Just shy of their 100 year anniversary, recent developments might cut the team’s existence short.
A letter sent out from the school’s sports department said that former head football coach Dom Gregorio said he “can no longer lead the football program as it exists due to concerns for the safety of our student-athletes” and that “injuries resulting from a lack of depth in our roster caused significant challenges this season.”
The school’s sports scholarship also played a role in the decision. The maximum merit award is $12,000, with the tuition for students who stay on the school’s grounds set at $70,000.
