Perrot tapped as AGS varsity football coach
AuGRES — There will be a new man at the helm of the AuGres-Sims Wolverines varsity football team this season.
Eric Perrot replaces Scott McAlindon as the varsity football coach after coaching the school’s junior high school team for the previous three years, and serving as an assistant coach at Hale for six seasons.
Perrot, a 1991 graduate of AuGres-Sims High School, said he and his team are ready for the upcoming football season.
“We have a good core of seniors returning and there are members of my coaching staff with a lot of good experience,” he said. “We are going to get the most we can out of this season.”
Perrot said he was born and raised in AuGres.
“I played for AuGres in the late 80s and early 90s,” he said.
Perrot said he was not planning on becoming the head coach of AGS this season but when he was offered the position he said he was glad to step in.
“The position became open and I decided that I needed to do it,” he said. “I thought to myself, ‘Why not? Let’s give this a shot.’”
Perrot said he believes his team will have a successful season.
“If we can get our players to put out 100 percent and leave everything out on the field, and the kids have fun doing it and do not get injured playing, we will have a successful season,” he said.
