Get To Know Hornets Football Assistants

The Hornets Football team has several new Assistant Coaches this season. Many of their names will be familiar but one is new to the Chillicothe School District. Nik Ferri is the new 7th Grade Social Studies teacher and is the Hornets Running Backs Coach.

The 22-year-old Slater native played for his father and is excited to start his new career in Chillicothe.

Another new coach to the staff is Buck Cueni-Smith, a Minister for an area Church. Smith explains his duties as the Character Development and Technology Coach.

“Coach Buck” has coached at Gallatin and more recently at School of the Osage. Two Lake residents called Hornets Head Coach Tim Rulo, encouraging him to hire Coach Buck.
