West Boca Hires Coach Potts as New Head Coach


Isaac Edelman, Reporter

West Boca High School has a new head football coach! The Bulls have hired Dylan Potts, an energetic and organized coach as described by many. 

Dylan Potts, now known as Coach Potts, played high school football at Hannibal River (Ohio) HS, winning All-Ohio, All-District, All-Valley and All-OVAC (Ohio Valley Athletic Conference) quarterback.

Potts played college football at the University of Akron. At Akron, Potts played quarterback, but then made the switch to wide receiver. Potts played two games as a quarterback as a true freshman (2010). That’s when he switched to wide receiver in 2011, where Potts played in all 12 games with one start. During that span, Potts had two catches for 22 yards and even threw a 41-yard pass against Central Michigan. 

After his time at Akron, Potts transferred to West Liberty University, where he started all 11 games at wide receiver in his first season after transferring from the NCAA Division I University. In 2013, he led West Liberty in every receiving category with 62 catches for 680 yards and seven touchdowns. 

After college, Potts went on to play overseas in both the German and Austrian Football Leagues (until 2016).

In terms of coaching, Potts most recently comes from Belen Jesuit Prep School, a private, Catholic school in Miami-Dade County. At Belen Jesuit, Potts was offensive coordinator, leading the Wolverines to a 7-3 record in both 2020 and 2021.

In the past, Potts has been offensive coordinator at East Coast Prep in Massachusetts, and QB/WR coach at River High School in Ohio.

Now at West Boca, Coach Potts will look to “flip the switch”. 

The Bulls finished with a 1-9 record under Coach Rowe this past season (2021). West Boca’s only win came against Spanish River.
