Red Bank High School announced earlier today that Chad Grabowski from Mount Dora HS (Fla). has been hired as the school's new football coach.

Grabowski had a five-year record of 38-20 at Mount Dora. He replaces E.K. Slaughter who is now the head coach at Heritage (Ga.) HS.

"We are thrilled to welcome Coach Grabowski and his family to Red Bank," said Red Bank High School principal Dr. Justin Robertson. "I am most impressed with his commitment to prepare his players for college, both athletically and academically.

"He has a proven record of developing players and helping them through the college recruiting process. In his five years at Mount Dora, Coach Grabowski consistently produced winning teams and 26 of his players earned scholarships to play college ball."

He is a 2001 graduate of Valdosta (Ga,) State where he played defensive end for three years and was all-county and all-district at Tavares HS north of Orlando.

"Red Bank has good support from the community and that is what attracted our family to the school," said Grabowski. "And I look forward to helping the Lion football program get back to the playoffs and also to help many of the student-athletes attend college.".

Red Bank was 3-7 this past fall and the last time the Lions were in the playoffs was 2011 (7-4)

2014 Opener:  Aug 22 at Boyd Buchanan

Red Bank HS Quarterback Club: Coach Grabowski will be introduced at the monthly meeting Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. at Red Bank Community Center down from the new Middle School entrance.
