Winning St. Ignatius football coach set to inspire
at the Community Prayer Breakfast on October 30
The most successful high school football coach in Ohio history will inspire the crowd at the 19th Annual Community Prayer Breakfast on October 30. Sponsored by Parma Community General Hospital with the support of the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce, the event held at St. Michael’s Woodside in Broadview Heights from 7-8:30 a.m. unites area citizens for an inspiring morning of reflection and fellowship.
Chuck Kyle, who led the St. Ignatius Wildcats to nine Division 1 state championships, was selected as head coach of Team USA this past summer. He oversaw this first-ever international football tournament for high-school aged football players. In 1989 and 1993, USA Today named him National Coach of the Year. In 1995, ESPN, the Sporting News and the National Sports Service ranked his squad the best team in the nation.
During 20 years teaching and coaching at St. Ignatius High School, Kyle has found that building a team of winners requires a coach who can instill the intangible qualities of faith, commitment, courage and enthusiasm. Kyle himself is a 1969 graduate of St. Ignatius and was tailback of the 1968 undefeated City Champs.
Tickets for the event are $15 each and are available for groups of 10 when pre-paid. The deadline to make reservations is Wednesday, October 15. For more information or to make reservations, call Pastoral Care Director Jon Paulus at 440-743-4295.
