Scott Bartholomew has been on the job as Chillicothe’s new head football coach a little over two weeks. It’s been a whirlwind for the Bartholomew since being tabbed at the Cavaliers 24th Head Coach since football was re-established in 1920 after the Spanish Flu pandemic had cancelled the 1918 and ’19 seasons.
Bartholomew might have led Chillicothe High School’s Football Program as early as in 2010. However, Ohio coaching legend Ron Hinton got the job and led the program for eight seasons.
December 27th, the CCSD Board of Education hired Bartholomew to fill the vacancy left by the non-renewal of Doug Pryor who succeeded Hinton in 2018.
Following Head Coaching positions at Oak Hill, Westfall and Logan Elm High Schools, Bartholomew followed his son Wade to Bloom-Carroll where the last two seasons ended in the State Semi-Finals. Son Wade stepped down as Bulldogs Head Coach a few weeks ago.
Bartholomew’s Logan Elm Braves ended the 2008 Chillicothe playoff run in a 28-14 battle, the only meeting between he and the Cavaliers.
Bartholomew visited with Litter Media Monday following the Cavaliers’ first winter session with their new skipper.

As expected, the Westfall Board of Education hired a new varsity head football coach at their Monday night meeting. Logan Stepp will replace Brad Smith as the head coach of the Westfall Mustangs.
Stepp is a 2014 graduate of West Jefferson High School and also graduated in 2018 from Otterbein University. Stepp, who played for Westfall grad Shawn Buescher, has been his assistant at West Jefferson for the last four years.
The Mustangs have struggled in recent years, going (12-23) under Coach Smith the last four seasons. Smith was thrust into the position after Coach Trent Olds was placed on administrative leave, just before the start of the 2018 season.
Stepp becomes the fourth Westfall football coach since 2013, where they have recorded a (23-60) record in that stretch.
