Everett High football is boasting a new coach, system and look this year but the results are all the same: The Crimson Tide win.

Behind a balanced attack and tough defense, the reigning division 1 state champs dispatched a top-tier Xaverian squad, 34-21, to open the season last Friday.

The victory is head coach Theluxon Pierre’s first and the school’s 800th, the most by any school in state history.

In the off-season, after the departures of coach John Dibiaso and starting quarterback Jake Wilcox, the Crimson Tide looked vulnerable.

Even still, Friday’s victory was not as confounding for coach Pierre, though. The first-year head coach knew all along that his reconstructed roster would open the season with a W. Continue reading “Crimson Tide Pick Up Where They Left Off”

It’s September again and that means just one thing for the City of Everett: High School football is back.

In 2017, the Crimson Tide dominated, but the landscape for the defending division 1 champs has changed since going undefeated a year ago — drastically.

The new look includes a new head coach, quarterback and completely reconditioned roster from the top down.

But don’t be fooled. New(ish) faces does not necessarily mean a change in the Tide.

Basketball season for Everett High School is on freeze until the opener in December, but that hasn’t stopped some of the returning players from heating up their game during the summer months.

“I grew up in Everett and to see the energy for basketball how it is now in the city is a beautiful thing,” said incoming head coach Stanley Chamblain, who moved to the city during middle school and couldn’t recall a time when basketball was such a buzz.

“We had [summer leagues] but the energy, and buzz around the city for basketball isn’t like it is now,” he said, “Its so important to have the summer leagues not only for the players to continue to work on their game but just to help keep kids focus away from the computer screens,” he said.

Since the season ended in April, EHS basketball players have only had several weeks off. In the first week of June, Everett’s summer league basketball started up and culminated the second week of August.

Crimson Tide Ready to Chart A New Course

By Lorenzo Recupero

How often does the departure of one man require three others to take his place? Chances are not too often. But that’s exactly what Everett High’s needed to do.

A brief scan across the Everett High School sports landscape will reveal a lot of change has taken place on the administrative side of things. A clear result of the departure of local legend John DiBiaso, who spent over two and a half decades with the school.

The wildly successful tenure of DiBiaso spanned across the EHS sports scene.

He was both the head coach of varsity football and basketball, while also guiding the school as athletic director. During his time at the helm, EHS football picked up over a dozen state championships and the basketball team became a fixture in the playoff bracket.

It will take a lot of sustained greatness to reach the heights DiBiaso took EHS sports, and going forward it will take a few others to help keep it going.
