Pending Board Approval on Monday, November 11th, Tony Larizza will be named the next CEO of Vermilion Sailor Softball. Coach Larizza (Vermilion High School Class of 1989) will have the opportunity to lead a team coming off it’s best season in 18 years. Last year the Sailors finished 12-7 and advanced to the District Title Game.
“We are excited to have Tony take over a program that has seen a resurgence in recent years. He has a strong connection to our community and has a ton of support. I received several letters of recommendation and emails of support for Coach Larizza. It is easy to see that he will be able to get kids and the community excited about the Sailor Softball program.” said Athletic Director Andrew Stillman.
Tony has been coaching the 7th and 8th graders for the past three years under the direction of Hall of Fame coach Bill Matthews.
