Summerfield’s Lefevre steps down as football coach

PETERSBURG — Summerfield football coach Ryan Lefevre has stepped down after two seasons as head coach of the Bulldogs.

Lefevre went 12-8 in his two seasons, taking the Bulldogs to the playoff last season. He went 8-6 in two seasons in the TCC. Prior to becoming the head coach, he was the Bulldog defensive coordinator for several years under head coach Erik Johnson.

Lefevre said his decision had to due with his family and hopes to one day coach again.

“I feel really good about the program,” he said. “There’s a lot of talented players coming back. I love coaching, its not about that. I just felt it was best for my family.”

Lefevre is just the sixth head coach the Bulldogs have had since they joined the Tri-County Conference. He replaced Johnson after he left to take the Britton Deerfield head coaching job.

The Bulldogs have appeared in the playoffs eight times since 2008.
