STRAKA NEW OBLONG FOOTBALL COACH

The Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville Co-op football squad has a new head coach. The Unit 4 Board of Education this week accepted the resignation of Chad Pusey and named Nick Straka as the new head man. Straka was an outstanding running back during his prep career with the Red Hill Salukis under head coach Bill Evans. He was the schools all time leading rusher at the time of his graduation in 2008, but his totals were broken most recently by Drew Moore.
