Staying Strong at Schalmont High

Originally published in the BFS Magazine July/August 2010

It’s been said “You can’t go home again,” but someone forgot to tell that to Michael DiCocco. In 1993 DiCocco graduated from Schalmont High School in Schenectady, New York. Now he’s back as a social studies teacher and defensive coordinator for this school’s Class B football team. He’s seen a lot of changes at his alma mater since he became a student there 21 years ago, and in recent years those changes have been very good ones.

Prior to the 2009 season, the Schalmont football team had made the playoffs only four times in 20 years, and they’d had many seasons with only three wins. To change things around, five years ago they implemented the BFS program, and in 2008 their new strength in the weightroom was apparent on the gridiron – they finished with a 7-2 record. Unfortunately they lost in the first round of the playoffs, but they hit major milestones by winning their division, being ranked sixth in the state, and setting many school records.

It gets better. In 2009, under the leadership of new head football coach Joe Whipple and well established with the BFS program, the Sabres shocked the local football community by winning nine straight games. There’s more: They won their division again, won their first playoff game in school history, and followed that by winning their sectional and regional titles. Says DiCocco, “BFS has been the most vital reason for our success, and we are looking forward to using it for our continued success!”
