Athletes at Alpena High School will be answering to some new coaching staff.
Jason Dubey has resigned as the Alpena High School Head Football Coach, citing health concerns. Dubey has worked with the football program for 13 seasons, serving as Head Coach since 2009.
Dubey said, “Due to a recent medical condition, I need to spend some time focusing on my health and family. It’s been a privilege to coach football at Alpena High and I‘ve enjoyed the opportunity to work with the young men of our community. I’ve benefited greatly from the relationships that have been established."
AHS Athletic Director Tim Wedge said, “Coach Dubey was great with kids and dedicated to Wildcat Football. Given the circumstances, this is the right thing for him to do at this time and we all wish him a speedy recovery.”
And the girls Varsity basketball team is welcoming a new coach.
Dan Arsenault, originally from Sault Ste. Marie has been offered the position. Arsenault comes to Alpena with a wide range of experiences working with students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. He began his coaching career in 2001, working with 7th grade boys basketball. From there he worked his way up and spent 8 years as the Varsity Girls Assistant Basketball Coach and the Head JV Girls Basketball coach, assembling an impressive 115 win - 18 loss record.
A selection committee representing student athletes, parents, and APS administration conducted interviews and agreed to offer Arsenault the post.
Arsenault will begin his duties immediately assembling his coaching staff and preparing for summer basketball camps.
