Several La Porte football players attended the school board meeting Monday at Boston Middle School to show their support for new Slicers coach David Ortiz.

As disappointed as they were about Jeremy Lowery resigning as La Porte football coach, Slicers players were as excited about the prompt hiriing of popular position coach David Ortiz as his successor.

“I think coach Ortiz will be a great fit, not only for this year, but for years to come,” junior tight end Grant Ott-Large said. “He’s good a family here and some good athletes on the come-up. He has three kids who could be good players as well. I’m really excited to work with him and determined to be the best team we can be.”
