Angel Estrada returns to Mater Academy as head football coach for 2017

Friday, August 4, 2017 0 Comments

Former Mater High football coach Angel Estrada has returned to his head coaching duties, replacing Rocco Casullo who resigned to pursue other opportunities outside of football.

Estrada, who last coached the Lions in 2013, will have some big shoes to fill. 

Casullo led Mater Academy to a 22-4 record over the past two years and the Class 7A regional finals with St. Thomas Aquinas defeating the Lions in back-to-back championship games.
Casullo was a defensive coordinator for St. Thomas Aquinas before his stint with Mater Academy.

Estrada has been involved with Mater Academy in various roles for nearly a decade while coaching and not coaching. 

He will be joined by associate head coach Cordaron Clark, who had the same role last year at Miami Carol City which won the Class 6A state championship. 

The Lions are in search of a running back who can replace All-Dade player Daniel Doriscar, who rushed for 1,128 yards on 122 carries and scored 16 touchdowns last season. 

Seniors Ralph Inman and Lentivone, junior Damion Salsberry and sophomore Takori Thurston are candidates seeking to pick up where Doriscar left off.
