White Pine High School named Quinn Ewell as the school’s new head coach for the football team on Monday. Ewell has been an assistant coach for the team for the past three years and also became the head coach of the baseball team at the beginning of the 2013-2014 season. White Pine’s football team struggled last season, failing to win a game. Ewell said that his first goal as a coach is to motivate the players to “play their hardest” and hopefully reach the playoffs. Ewell is holding a parent-player conference at the high school on June 17 at 7 p.m. The goal for the meeting is to go over the summer weight-training schedule for athletes and answer questions from the players’ parents.
