Theluxon Pierre, Everett High School alumni and head football coach for the last two seasons, was relieved of his position with the team and his assistant Gregory Bluestein has been appointed interim head coach for the remainder of the 2020-2021 football season.

The shakeup was not due to Pierre’s coaching performance but a result of his lack of teaching credentials required at

Everett Public Schools. Bluestein, who has a Master of Education degree in Athletic Administration, has been teaching at the school for the last eight years.

If you look at the Everett High School boys and girls track records for what they are, a lack of wins might make it seem like the team isn’t on top of things, but head coach Jehu Cimea isn’t worried about records as much as he is overall effort.

“All our athletes try their best for us each meet we’ve had,” said Cimea, in his third year at the helm for the Tide.

Following Tuesday’s loss to Malden High School, the boys dropped to 1-2 and the girls to 0-3 overall, respectively. The lone win for EHS came last week in a 48-38 triumph over Medford High School.

“Hard work has defined our season so far,” said Cimea, who is choosing to build off effort rather than records with this years team. “Their hard work is paying off. They want to perform their best always and push themselves always,” said Cimea.
