Former Logan coach Toth takes over at Wahama
MASON, W.Va. - Wahama High School begins the 2018 season with a new head coach who will be trying to improve on the 2-8 record the White Falcons posted a year ago.
James Toth is the new head coach. His previous head coaching experience was last season at Logan High School.
Toth returns to Wahama where he previously coached the boys basketball team for eight seasons. He is just now getting up to speed with his team and staff after a late hire in July.
In football, Toth had been Wahama’s defensive coordinator as well until 2010. He returned to his alma mater, Man High School, to be an assistant coach before leaving that post after five years.
Toth then became an assistant coach at Logan until he took the reigns there for his only season.
“Coaching is coaching,” Toth said comparing football to basketball. “You’ve got to learn the ability of your team and once you figure that out you know what you can ask your kids to do.”
Wahama had 23 players come out for a season that begins Aug. 24 at Ravenswood.
The White Falcons return three players on offense and four on defense from last season’s team.
“On offense we lost every lineman but one,” Toth said. “I would like to see more out but I think numbers are low all over the state.
“The best things I’ve seen are great effort and great attitude from these kids. They’re really coachable kids.”
