Patrick "Red Dog" Lagan
"Mac" Stuber Memorial Award
                              

              Every autumn, under the ominous lights of Coatesville Area Senior High

           School Memorial Stadium, one of the cogs of the Coatesville High School

Football program machine is working in plain sight – but few take notice.

We marvel at the team, band, cheerleaders, and student body recognizing

           the hours of commitment, dedicated to another flawless Friday night               

victory and performance.  We appreciate all of the coaches, volunteers,   

parents, and community members who support every aspect of the

           season.  However, take a second look the next time there is a

           First Down.  The “chain gang” on the opposing sideline has been

           anchored for 50 seasons by Patrick “Red Dog” Langan. 

                Red Dog’s devotion to the community and school has been sustained

through more than the four decades on the sideline.  He was born and raised

in the City of Coatesville, raised four children, and is now the grandfather of

six Coatesville graduates and two current students.  

              As a 1964 graduate, Patrick managed the football team throughout

            his high school tenure.  He has worked every Steel City Invitational and

attended every bonfire held on campus.  In more recent years, he could be

seen running the sidelines as a coach, mentoring the future generations of the

Coatesville Midget Football League.  His commitment to the school and community is admirable.

                   Patrick “Red Dog” Langan seems to be omnipresent in Coatesville.

He is a nightly and perennial fan of every sport during every season. 

It is a rarity to find him without the Red and Black on his back.  He simply does not miss a game or a First Down.

        or a First Down.

 

            

Carroll Shuler '83
Wrestling

Carroll H. Shuler, Jr. used every ounce of his 138lb frame to punish his opponents throughout his career.  During the pre-tournament era, wresters were limited to duel meets and post-season matches.  Considering the statistical constraints, his 79 career wins were the most wins for 31 years at Coatesville and his 4 years on the varsity team left an indelible mark on the wrestling program.

        His Ches Mont league accomplishments are impressive.  He finished the 1982 and 1983 season as an Undefeated Ches Mont Leage Champion.  His junior year 26-3 record was capped off by 18 pins.  In his senior year, his 34-3 record was flooded with an incredible 29 pins.

        During his post-season crusades, he won the Sectional Championship in 1982 and 1983.  As a junior, he finished in 2nd place at the PIAA District Champion and improved as Champion in 1983.  At the Southeastern Regional Championships, his 3rd place junior year finish was again improved to a senior year Champion award along with recognition for being the most outstanding wrestler in the region.  At the highest level, he qualified for the PIAA state championship meet as a junior and finished his career as a senior with a 6th place showing I 1983.

        Carroll still resides in Coatesville and is the proud father of four children.  His contributions to the community continue as he inspires the city's youth through the mentoring program "Dream BIG Academy for Mentoring and Youth Development".

Daniel Newton '99

Baseball 

     There have been very few high school baseball players who have instilled fear into opposing pitchers the way that Daniel "Newt" Newton did from 1996-99.  His relentless approach to both his offensive domination combined with his defensive prowess fueled his teams to 3 consecutive District One Championships.  His presence intimidated his opponents and inspired his teammates.

        During his 98-99 varsity campaigns, he was selected to the All-Ches Mont team as a middle infielder and selected to represent Coatesville on the Chester County All-Star Team at the Carpenter Cup Tournament.  Dan earned recognition from both the Daily Local News and Philadelphia Inquirer as a member of their All-Area Chester County Baseball Teams.  His efforts were recognized with the highest honor bestowed upon Coatesville Baseball players, the Leo "Spike" Atkinson Memorial Award.

Jody McMillian '85

Track

   Coatesville High has a long history of talented athletes that have found success in multiple sports during their careers and Jody McMillan certainly falls into that category. It is for his accomplishments in the High Jump for Track and Field that he is being honored. Jody moved to Coatesville from Avon-Grove to start his Junior year and in just two years, made his impact on Red Raiders athletics in both Track and Field and Basketball.

He also competed in the Penn Relays invitational high school high jump in both of his years at Coatesville. Jody was also a very good discus thrower, an unusual “double” for a track athlete and earned medals on the league, district and state level in that event. He capped off his high school career by participating in the high jump at the Keebler Invitational in Chicago, a national level all-star meet for high school track and field athletes.

 

   You cannot mention Jody McMillan and not be reminded of his performance on the basketball court. A very talented player, he was well known for his spectacular and thunderous dunks. He was a starter on back to back Ches-Mont championship teams. Both of those teams advanced into the P.I.A.A. State Playoffs. Between his years at Avon-Grove and Coatesville, he scored over 1000 points in his career. His Senior year he earned first team All Ches-Mont, first team All Area and Honorable Mention All-State honors for basketball.

 

   After graduating from Coatesville, Jody went to Kutztown University and was a starter on the basketball team. He was offered the opportunity to continue playing basketball after college by several teams, but an unfortunate auto accident ended those dreams. He did continue to play in local summer leagues and also worked at several basketball camps in the Philadelphia area. He then organized and ran his own clinics for youth in the area. Jody now resides in the Coatesville area.


Sheena Crawley '09

Track

     Sheena Crawley was a well rounded student-athlete who competed at the varsity level in soccer, indoor and outdoor track, cross country.  Her extra-curricular and scholastic endeavors were numerable as well, but her contributions to Coatesville athletics are inspiring.

       Sheena was an above average soccer player but found her calling on the track.  Throughout her high school career, her primary focus was the 800m and 1600m runs.  In her first attempt at a competitive 1600m versus Downingtown East at a duel meet, she unexpectedly won and qualified for the 2008 District One Track Meet.  That season her newly found talent led her to a 2nd place medal in the 1600m Ches Mont Championship, 6th place at the PIAA District One Championship, and a 7th place finish at the PIAA Outdoor State meet.

       After playing soccer for 3 years on the varsity team, Sheena decided to focus her fall season on running by joining the cross country team.  By doing so, she would be honing her talent she developed on the track.  Her expectations to maintain her conditioning for the track season may have been minimal, but the end result, at 15th place finish at the PIAA State Cross Country Meet was extraordinary.  That same school year, Sheena anchored the State Indoor Champion Distance Medley Relay team - running the 1600m. Finishing her senior year as an incredible athlete, she added a 1st place in both the 800m and 1600m at the Ches Mont Championship, a 5th place finish at the PIAA District One Championship in the 1600m, and placed 3rd in the 1600m at the PIAA Outdoor State Meet.
