Multiple Teams · James Boyeas announced as next Head Football Coach

Lorain City Schools is excited to announce James Boyeas as our next Head Football Coach.

We had approximately 25 individuals that formally applied for the position and after a very thorough interview process, the committee decided that Coach Boyeas was the best fit to lead our program moving forward.

Coach Boyeas brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the program.  He is currently a teacher and coach at Garfield Heights High School.  Everyone that we spoke with raved about him as a communicator, motivator, and educator. Coach Boyeas has extensive coaching experience at both the high school and college level.

The committee was extremely impressed with his plan to be actively involved in all 3 levels – youth, middle school and high school.  It was very evident that he is a person that genuinely cares about his players both on and off the field.

We are extremely excited about the future of Lorain football.
