The Hardy County Board of Education approved the hiring of new high school head football coaches as Matt Altobello will take over at Moorefield High School and Devon Orndorff will step up at East Hardy High School.
Both coaches grew up in the Potomac Highlands as Altobello hails from Keyser and Orndorff is from Wardensville.
Excitement is in the minds of both coaches stepping into the helm of these football programs.
“I’m excited. It’s an exciting opportunity. It’s exciting to be a part of a good community, one that’s supportive. I’m glad to be a part of the program. I’m glad to be able to step in and have the opportunity to be a head football coach of a tradition rich program,” Moorefield Football coach Matt Altobello stated.
Orndorff took his excitement one step further to say he felt ecstatic to take on this role.
“Using the word ‘excited’ to describe my feelings may be an understatement. I’m ecstatic. There’s nothing more exciting than taking over a program you bled and sweat for,” East Hardy Football coach Devon Orndorff remarked.
These coaches were high school standouts and have been assistant coaches for a handful of years.
