The weight of turning around Deer Lakes' struggling football team will fall on the broad shoulders of former NFL lineman Steve Sciullo.

Sciullo, approved by Deer Lakes' school board as coach Tuesday, was a fourth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2003. He graduated from Shaler in 1998, became a standout tackle at Marshall, and started 13 games as a rookie.

Retired from pro football since 2007, Sciullo, 33, most recently served as a Hampton assistant.
