(PITTSBURGH) — Central Catholic High School names Ryan Lehmeier as our new Head Football Coach. After a thorough search of applicants across the region, Lehmeier comes to Central by way of Seneca Valley, where he served in the capacity of both offensive coordinator and quarterback’s coach. He plans to contribute significantly to the traditions that are known to make our school uniquely Catholic and Lasallian.
“Ryan Lehmeier is a dedicated coach and educator. I am convinced of all of the good that he will do for the young men confided to his care,” said Principal Brother Mike Andrejko, FSC, ’86, who made the formal announcement to faculty and staff on Tuesday. “In addition to his time on the gridiron, we look forward to him joining our Lasallian educational system and expect great things as he becomes an addition to the Central Catholic Community!”
Lehmeier achieved his Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Physical Education from Slippery Rock University, and a Master of Arts in Education from the University of Findlay. He is currently a full-time teacher at Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Pittsburgh King K-8. As a devout man of faith, he is also an active member of St. Kilian Catholic Church in Cranberry Township.
Coach Lehmeier said, “I am truly appreciative of the opportunity given to me by the Central Catholic Administration to lead the Viking football program. I am in the process of assembling a staff, meeting with student-athletes, and their families, to begin laying the foundation moving forward.” Central Catholic welcomes Coach Lehmeier into our family as we prepare to continue our culture of molding our students into successful men. “I plan on continuing the successful and storied traditions of Central Catholic Football and will work diligently to build a rapport with the entire Central Catholic community.”
Lehmeier begins his position immediately and has begun the process of preparing for the upcoming season.
