Congratulations to TVHS teacher Curtis Love who was named the new head football coach at Monday night's Board of Education meeting. Love, who has served as the defensive coordinator for the past 8 seasons, replaces Dale Martini who retired at the end of the 2008 campaign. Love is a 1994 graduate of Indian Valley High School where he a was a 3-year letterwinner and a member of Indian Valley's 1993 PAC Champions. Love then played linebacker at Mount Union College and helped the Purple Raiders capture the 1996 Division III national championship.

He becomes the 10th head coach in school history.

Statement from TVLSD Superintendent Mark Murphy:

Curtis is a well-respected teacher here at TVHS and has extensive experience as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator.  What impresses me most is how Curtis will carry the strong Trojan tradition developed by Coach Martini of expecting our students to show CLASS in all circumstances, along with strong character, discipline, and integrity.  Mr. Love holds a three-way test for all students, for any circumstance or decision:  “Will it make me a better person?  Will it make me a better student?  Will it make me a better athlete?”  Mr. Love is passionate about doing his best for students—in the classroom and on the field.  He is energetic, enthusiastic, and committed to our district!  I look forward to Mr. Love’s leading our football program into the future!
