By admin Published: July 5, 2007

Stow baseball coach Brian Banfield has resigned and will take the assistant principal job at his alma mater Poland Seminary High School.

Banfield guided the Bulldogs (24-6, 13-1) to their second consecutive Western Reserve Conference title this past season. He was also named WRC Coach of the Year for the second year in a row.

‘‘I spent four years at Stow and it was a great place to start my coaching my career,’’ said Banfield, whose career record with the Bulldogs is 82-30. ‘‘I'd like to thank all the players and assistant coaches who made my time there so valuable to me.’’

In Banfield's four years as Stow's head coach, the program had 12 players go on to play college baseball.

Banfield is a 1993 graduate of Poland Seminary, where he played baseball and football. Banfield said he will not continue his coaching career at his new job.
