TENNERTON — Buckhannnon-Upshur High School’s new football head coach will take over control of the Bucs after spending 16 years in the program as an assistant coach.
Duane Stoeckle first began coaching at Buckhannon-Upshur High School in 1997, when head coach Greg Hill hired him to coach the freshmen. Along the way, Stoeckle also served as an assistant under head coaches Don Swisher, Eddie Vincent, Dave Chipps and Bill Struble, before officially being named the Bucs’ new head coach Tuesday at the Upshur County Board of Education’s monthly meeting.
“I got my start teaching as well as coaching football at Buckhannon-Upshur High School, so I feel very invested in the program and I want both to be the best they can be,” Stoeckle said in an interview Thursday. “This is a very special opportunity for me. I feel very fortunate to have a chance to help turn things around in this program.”
