A local football coaching legend returns

Rhett Stallworth reprises role as YC's head coach

YUMA, Ariz. - When Rhett Stallworth took over the Yuma Catholic football program back in 2007, the school itself was only in the 7th year of it's existence.

Little did anyone know at the time, he would turn an small program into a state championship power only 4 years later; leading YC to 3 state titles between 2011 and 2014.

Stallworth would step down from coaching in 2016 to become the school's principal.

On Monday, just two weeks after the dismissal of his successor; the program announced that Stallworth again will reprise the role of head coach while still staying active as principal.

The 3-time state champion gave his vision on how he seeks to move the program forward:

"The goal is still always going to be to win state championships. So, at the end of the day, that's where we want to get. But, with that being said, how we get there is important to us. What we're doing on and off the field is important to us. So, accountability for the kids and the coaches and everyone else is what we're looking for. And with that accountability, in the end the wins will come."

Stallworth goes into his 2nd tenure as coach with an overall record of 103-14 with the Shamrocks.
