NORTH ADAMS,  Mass. — McCann Technical School announced that they have appointed new football Jon Rochelo.

"As a former player of mine in high school, basketball, I'm excited to see Jon returning to the school in a coaching role," said Principal Justin Kratz. "I think he's got the right mindset and perspective to work well with our players and am really looking forward to seeing him on the sidelines.  I know he's invested in the school and seeing the program succeed."  

Rochelo takes over for former coach John LeClair

Rochelo, a McCann graduate and football player, graduated in 2007 and earned All Berkshire honors in 2004, '05, and '06 as well as the McCann defensive player of the year award in 2005 and the D.A. Ponti Athletic Award in 2007.    

He also played point guard on the school's basketball team.

After graduation Rochelo stayed in the field of his vocational studies working his way up from an apprentice to as a licensed electrician foreman for Comalli Electric and then moving to CTC Inc.  

 He has been involved in youth coaching for a number of years coaching softball, baseball, and football locally.  
 He resides with his wife and three children in Cheshire.

"Jon's a good young coach that I think has a solid handle on the game and the ability to work well with young players," Kratz added. "We'll be looking to surround him with a strong coaching staff in the next couple weeks and it will be August before we know it."
