Going from Red to Blue, Pratley new coach

The next head coach for the Bears football team has been named.   Andrew Pratley, who previously was the head coach and Holland High School becomes the 18th head coach in St. Joseph football’s 104 year history.   Pratley led the Dutch to a 17-38 record in his six seasons at the helm at Holland from 2013-2018, including a 2017 playoff appearance.  Pratley has also been a head coach at West Branch Ogemaw Heights from 2004-2012, while there he was 60-37 with seven appearances in the playoffs, taking the Falcons to the semifinals in 2009.  Pratley will serve as the West coach in the upcoming MHSFCA East West All-Star Game. He was the MHSFCA Coach of the Year for the 2017 season as well National High School Football Coaches Association Coach of the Year that same season.  Pratley made his decision known that he was stepping down at Holland high school via a post to the Holland Football Facebook Group.  “While I certainly was not looking to leave, one opportunity was just too good to pass up. This process, and ultimately this decision, was extremely difficult, but one that we feel is best for our family. I will forever be #hpsproud of my time in Holland. With that said I have accepted the Head Football position at St. Joseph High School as the new head football coach.”    The Bears open up the regular season on Thursday, August 29th at Battle Creek Central.
