Bovee steps down as Morenci football coach

Jacob Bovee has resigned as Morenci’s football coach.

Bovee has been the Bulldog football coach for three seasons, going 15-15. Morenci went 7-4, 6-4 and 2-7 in his three years, making the playoffs twice and winning one playoff game.

One of Bovee’s biggest wins was in his first season when the Bulldogs won at Clinton, ending the Redskins’ 40-game regular season and 30-game TCC win streaks with a 20-17 overtime victory.

“There are some really good coaches in the TCC and to go toe-to-toe with them was pretty cool,” he said. “Coaching against guys like Chris Luma (Hudson), Scott McNitt (Clinton) and Scott Gallagher (Sand Creek) was pretty nice. I had a good relationship with a lot of the other coaches.”

Bovee said he is going to focus on his family and business but hopes to return to coaching someday.

“If it wasn’t for the business, I’d still be coaching,” he said. “I’ll be back. I just don’t know when or where.”
