LOWER POTTSGROVE — Jim Algeo may not be on the sidelines anymore, but he certainly isn’t out of the game.
The longtime Lansdale Catholic coach, who resigned last year after a Hall of Fame career that spanned 44 seasons, was in the stands last Friday night to watch his son — Pottsgrove assistant Jim Jr. — and the Falcons defeat longtime nemesis Strath Haven in the opening round of the District 1-Class AAA playoffs.
Algeo, who was accompanied by his wife and son Danny Algeo, the head coach at Cardinal O’Hara, has also sat in on a few Pope John Paul II games, where two of his daughters’ sons play for Mike Santillo and the Golden Panthers.
What the Algeos may or may not have known is that Pottsgrove head coach Rick Pennypacker and the Falcons win over Strath Haven tied Lansdale Catholic for the most postseason wins (15) by a Pioneer Athletic Conference team.
