Catholic School AD told peers to go WHAT themselves over football vote?
An athletic director angry about the vote of NJSIAA members to separate public and private schools into different football conferences fired off an email that left no doubt about he feels.
Michael Wolfthal, the athletic director at Bishop Ahr in Edison, wrote an email reprinted by NJ Advance Media that he was "disheartened by the lack of support" for the private Catholic school from fellow members of the Greater Middlesex Conference. "I have been part of this conference since the beginning, having served in many capacities all for naught, what you showed was a total lack of support and appreciation this is just not right," he wrote.
Wolfthan concludes his email by telling them, in bolded capital letters to "GO F--- YOURSEVES."
MyCentralJersey.com reports that Wolfthan is a member of the GMC's executive committee and co-chairman of its football committee.
Messages seeking comment from Bishop Ahr, the Diocese of Metuchen and the NJSIAA have not yet been returned.
Members on Monday voted on Monday to create a separate football conference for nonpublic schools effective with the 2016 season. The move was in response to several North Jersey private schools such as Don Bosco Prep, Bergen Catholic, St. Peter’s Prep and Paramus Catholic becoming nationally ranked powerhouse teams — able to pull talent from the whole state while public schools could only draw from their surrounding communities.
