Football Alum Kelliher Nears 200th Career Win

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
In the Abingdon Mariner, check out the story about UMass football alum Jim Kelliher, who is closing in on his 200th career win as a high school coach at Abingdon.

The Abington High School Green Wave football team will be hosting the Bishop Feehan Shamrocks on this Friday at Memorial Field. Although this is a non-league game, the result of this game could be of special significance to Abington head coach Kelliher. Kelliher, who is now enjoying his 37th year as the Green Wave's head coach, currently has 199 career victories on the gridiron.

A victory on Friday night will elevate Coach Jim Kelliher to the heralded "200 Wins Club," a significant accomplishment which we invite fans and former players to celebrate with "Coach Kell."

After achieving his 200th win, a special presentation to Coach Kelliher will be made at a future home football game to be announced.

Kelliher was a standout football player for Abington High School and at UMass, and later served as an assistant coach for three years at Abington High before being appointed as Abington's head coach in 1974.
