Alchesay Falcons using heart and hustle to soar

Alchesay High School’s third year head football coach, Mel Frank, is looking to build on last year’s successes with more heart and hustle for the 2012 – 2013 football season.

“We want to take this team to the next level by showing how big our heart is and how much we can hustle.” Frank said in a recent interview.  “With those 2 attributes we will build team unity to become more cohesive.  As we become more cohesive we become a better team.”
