BRADENTON – Brett Timmons got the Out–of–Door Academy football program off the ground. Now, he tries to get his alma mater, Southeast, off the mat.

Timmons becomes the third head coach in 5 years as the Seminoles try to find a replacement for Timmons’ head coach, Hall of Famer Paul Maechtle.

The Noles have a nice nucleus coming back, but Coach Timmons has to get them mentally back after their once playoff–bound 2017 season went down in flames with 6 forfeits for an illegal player just prior to the post–season.

He learned a lot from his mentor, he’s had a good track record, and he loves the school. Plus, he looks to have 2 booming legs in the kicking game in Igor Kitanovski and Carlos Aragon, borrowed from the soccer team. The building blocks are there.

“My job is to take it to the next step and beyond. these kids work hard”, said Brett Timmons, the new Southeast Seminoles head football coach. “I am so happy to be home(Southeast), to a part of building something special, carrying on the tradition that Paul Maechtle built, and carry on that east side tradition of Southeast High School football.”

The Noles will play North Port in their spring game, and they will meet up with former head coach Maechtle, who is now the head coach at Cardinal Mooney. That game is at Mooney on October 5th. The student meets the master.
