David Younger has announced his resignation as South Albany High School’s varsity football coach after seven seasons.

South was 28-42 overall and 22-29 in Mid-Willamette Conference games during his tenure.

The school won league championships in 2015 and 2017 and made a state quarterfinal appearance in 2017. The RedHawks went 2-7 each of the past two seasons.

"The last two years have been tough, but I have seen our football players grown even during losses," Younger said in a resignation letter.

The Democrat-Herald and Gazette-Times will have more on Younger’s resignation next week.
