Scholz comes to the river town from the very successful Colerain High School gridiron program where he served as the inside linebackers coach and the coordinator of the Cardinals’ special teams for the past seven years.

During his own high school career as a Greenhills Pioneer he lettered in football, basketball, and baseball before graduating in 1986. He attended Indiana University at Bloomington his first two years of college and finished his college career and earned his diploma at Miami (of Ohio) University. His major was physical education.

The new head taskmaster of the Lions has been pleased and impressed from what he has seen of his charges thus far.

“They’ve done everything I’ve asked of them. They have done a fastastic job (this summer). I’m very proud of them. These kids are very hard workers. We’ve been working on the strength program which is very important. I want all of the players to be as strong as they can possibly be.”
