WHITE HALL —
Who knew that having skills as a quarterback would carry over into a career as a police chief?
Geno Guerrieri has been using skills he learned as a Fairmont State quarterback in his career as White Hall’s police chief. Now, he is going to be teaching leadership skills to local quarterbacks.
This coming football season, Guerrieri is volunteering as Fairmont Senior’s quarterbacks coach. He said he looking forward to helping players improve their skills on and off the field.
“I’m looking forward to interacting with the kids, teaching them skills and proper techniques,” Guerrieri said. “Just go back to old-school coaching like it was.”
Guerrieri played quarterback at Potomac State, then transferred to play for the Falcons from 1992-1995.
After he graduated he joined the coaching staff for three years; then he returned home to Pennsylvania to coach at Belle Vernon High School.
Coming back to Marion County, Guerrieri coached the F.O.P. Colts for four years.
“I just enjoy working with kids and being around kids,” he said.
