During opening night of a preseason round robin, a new varsity basketball coach was forced to deal with a tragedy upon completion of the game. Coach Paul Deschaine would learn that his home was on fire on Friday night.
However, substance use and addiction took over and Herren nearly lost it all, before rebounding and turning over a new leaf. Chris Herren will be in Aroostook County later this fall speaking about his battles on and off of the court.
Central Aroostook High School in Mars Hill announced the hiring of two new varsity coaches earlier this week. The school district has been searching for a boys' varsity soccer coach and a girls’ varsity basketball coach.
