Ansonia 2010 graduate Adam Hall returns to his alma mater to head up the Tigers football program
ANSONIA – Adam Hall returns to his alma mater as the head varsity football coach of the Ansonia Tigers football program after serving as an Ansonia assistant football coach and the past two seasons as the Tri-County North Panthers head coach.
“Ansonia is where I’ve always wanted to be,” Hall said. “I am very excited about being able to be back in Ansonia.”
Hall, a 2010 Ansonia graduate played football for the Tigers under legendary Ansonia football coach, Eugene Hoening before going on to a college football career with the Defiance Yellow Jackets, graduating in 2014.
Coach Hall is excited to have his high school coach come out of retirement to coach the offensive and defensive lines for the 2022 season. Coach Hoening led the Tigers football program for 38-years.
“Coach Hoening has been great for me,” Hall stated. “I don’t think I would be a football coach or a teacher if it wasn’t for Coach Hoening. Since I have been coaching no one has helped me more than Coach Hoening. He’s going to come back and help coach this year and I’m excited about it.”
Coach Hall brings a wealth of experience to Ansonia having played at the college level and heading up a high school football program at a young age.
“Playing in college, the time commitment is a completely different situation than it is in high school, that’s one thing,” noted Hall, “and getting through school it’s a lot but it’s worth it.”
“Two years at Tri-County North and I really appreciate the administration at Tri-County North,” Hall added. “It was great and they were very supportive, the kids there were good, hard workers…but, Ansonia – couldn’t pass that opportunity up.”
Coach Hall invites all Ansonia boys to join the Ansonia Tigers football program.
“If you are a boy at Ansonia we want you to play football – we have 40 guys signed up right now, we have room for more,” said Coach Hall. “If you go to Ansonia we want you to come out. We lift in the mornings at 7 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.”
