Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: East Golden Bears

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

New East coach Brian Marrow has been on the job for about two weeks, but that won't be an excuse if the Golden Bears don't start the season with a bang. 

It's been a whirlwind for the East program.  Not only did they get a new coach in Marrow, but they've changed back to the Golden Bears.

Even though he's been on the job for a short time, Marrow feels comfortable coaching in the city. "I'm thrilled to be back here. It's where I grew up and played (Wilson). So I'm going to do anything for the city schools." 

Being on the job for a short time is no excuse for Marrow and the Golden Bears. "We can't give them any excuses for the seniors on this team. We don't have a two or three-year plan, it's all about them right now," Marrow said.

The Golden Bears have nearly 60 players led by Elijah Donlee, Mike Lawrence, Chris Fitzgerald and Carlos Jones.  

In his previous head coaching job, Marrow led Youngstown Christian (now Valley Christian) to their deepest playoff run. He hopes to do the same thing with the Golden Bears. 

"I hope to be very competitive. I'm going to work my tail off and my staff is going to do the same thing for these guys and get it accomplished," Marrow said.
