Ponte Vedra High School welcomed its new head football coach Steve Price to the school with a Zoom conference call for parents and students, which took place Monday, Jan. 25.
As a football player himself at both high school and collegiate levels, Price brings to the table more than 28 years of coaching experience at four separate schools. Three of those schools he took to state championship games, making him a valuable addition to the Sharks’ team.
Price most recently left Tallahassee North Florida Christian to take over PVHS’ football program, and in 2018, he led the Tallahassee NFC to the Class 2A state title.
Price replaces Jeff DiSandro, who resigned as head coach midway through last season. DiSandro took the head coaching job in 2019, replacing current Bolles coach Matt Toblin.
Eric Frank, athletic director at PVHS, said in a welcome letter to students and faculty at PVHS that Price has a strong vision to continue to elevate the school’s winning tradition, and form strong relationships with the students through open communication and trust.
In the few weeks since PVHS hired Price, he has already begun to meet with other coaches and join forces with the athletic department to plan games for the upcoming football seasons.
“I am looking forward to watching him bring stability and leadership to our program,” Frank said in the welcome letter.
