Coach DerCola was, and continues to be, an inspirational figure in the history of Clyde-Savannah and has helped inspire countless students and staff members.

On Friday, September 23rd Coach DerCola will be celebrated before the start of our varsity football team.

Members of the community are encouraged to attend the festivities, which begin at 6:00pm. Coach DerCola will be joined by his family at the 50-yard line and have a special plaque unveiled to honor him during the ceremony.

The varsity football game kicks off at 7:00pm.
