Price may be out at Ringgold

| Monday, April 5, 2010

Ringgold may be looking for a new football coach and athletic director.

According to a school board director who didn't want to be identified, Lloyd Price submitted his resignation Friday effective immediately.

Price wasn't in school during last week after attending the annual athletic directors' convention in Hershey the previous week.

Price was unavailable for comment this morning, as were Ringgold officials.

No reason was given for Price's resignation.

In March, Price's contract as athletic director was extended for five years and his salary was increased to $63,616.25.

Price, 26, was in his third year as Ringgold's athletic director and coached the Ram gridders to a 4-6 record in 2009 with a team loaded with underclassmen.

A 2001 Ringgold graduate, Price played football, basketball and baseball for the Rams.

Price went on to star at California University, where he was a two-time Academic All-American and was selected the PSAC 2005-06 Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

A two-time All-PSAC selection, Price led the Vul- cans in tackles in 2004 and the following season topped the PSAC with 108 tackles.

A two-year team captain and third team national All-American linebacker, Price was instrumental in the Vulcans winning their first PSAC West championship in 21 years during his senior campaign.

Before taking the Ringgold AD post, Price served as running backs coach at California University in 2006.

After graduating from California University, Price was the California High girls' basketball coach for two seasons.

Price was named to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Director's Association's Delegate Assembly in 2008 and was one of the WPIAL's 13 voting members.

He also served the past two seasons as vice president and secretary of the Big Seven Conference in football.
