It’s been a very interesting event-filled off-season thus far for the Niagara Storm youth football organization and today was no exception, as the “Boys in Blue” proudly announced that Coach Brian “B.J.” Malott would be replacing Don Moses as the new Head Coach of the Senior Varsity football program.
“I am proud, excited, and pleased to announce that B.J. has accepted the head coaching position for the Storm varsity team,” said club President, Frank Trivieri. “B.J. brings experience and great enthusiasm to the job.”
“I’m really excited to be a member of the Storm family!” Coach Malott posted on the Storm Facebook page earlier this evening. “I’m also really looking forward to meeting everyone and am very thankful for the opportunity to compete with this team.”
The following bio is currently listed on the Storm website:
“Brian ‘B.J.’ Malott comes from a genuine football pedigree. His father coached for over 9 years at Wilfred Laurier University, and he was raised with his five brothers who also happened to be dedicated football players.
“B.J.’s football career started at the age of 6 in the Tri-City area where he played for the Vipers, and he eventually went on to coach for them for over three years as a teenager. In 2004, B.J. was a starting receiver and slotback with the McMaster Marauders and managed to win the honours of Rookie of the Year. While playing University football, he also found the time to coach with the OVFL Guelph Bears in 2006-07. In 2008, he transferred to Waterloo where he played his final year of University football.
“B.J. has a degree in Social Sciences and is currently employed by the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board working in a special education department as a Resource Worker. He has coached for Kitchener-Waterloo & Guelph minor and senior OVFL football, COMFL TRI-CIM Vipers football, and the St. Joseph Jaguars senior HS football team.
“He also participates as a coach/clinician with the Super Elite Football clinics at various locations all over Ontario. In addition to all of this, B.J. has also been the receivers coach since 2011 with the University of Guelph Gryphons, who appeared in the 2012 Yates Cup Final.”
Well, on behalf of Niagara football, I would just like to say, “Welcome!”
Something tells me that our kids will be extremely fortunate to have the expertise and personal guidance of Coach Milott and his staff.
Here’s to a great season in 2013. Cheers!
