Westford Academy Announces New Football Coach
January 26th, 2013
Westford, MA; Westford Academy appoints Adam Gagne as the new head football coach. He is the 11th head football coach in the 67 year history of the program. Coach Gagne was recently the head Coach at Salem High School (New Hampshire) for the 2012 season. Coach Gagne was the offensive coordinator at Westford Academy with Head Coach Rich McKenna for three years prior to his stint at Salem. Adam spent 5 years as an assistant Coach at Merrimack College under Coach Jim Murphy and John Perry before his time at Westford Academy. Coach Gagne is in his 4th year as a business teacher at Westford Academy. He also serves as the DECA advisor and freshman basketball coach at Westford Academy. Coach Gagneís football playing experience includes a
standout career at Haverhill High School and later on at Bentley University where he was a three-year starter.
“I am honored to become the head football coach at Westford Academy. While I thoroughly enjoyed my time coaching at Salem, the opportunity to teach and coach at Westford Academy was something I had to take advantage of. I am very thankful for this great opportunity and I am excited to get started." Says Coach Gagne.
“We are thrilled to have such a high quality coach, teacher and person right here at Westford Academy. The football program at Westford Academy is in great hands with Coach Gagne. Adam is an excellent teacher of the game and is on the cutting edge of football in terms of his knowledge and techniques,” says Director of Athletics Dan Twomey.
“Coach Gagne is a class act and he exceeded all of the criteria we wanted in our next head coach. After we interviewed him, I knew this program would continue to head in the right direction. He already does great things in the classroom here and we expect those great things to carry over to the field” states Principal Jim Antonelli.

Important Information Regarding Physicals for Athletics
School physicals will no longer be offered at Westford Academy during the summer.
Last week the MIAA voted to align its requirements on physicals with the Mass Department of Public Health. What this means is that physicals will expire 13 months from the exam date. Students will no longer be allowed to continue participation until the end of the season. Student’s eligibility will terminate once a physical has reached the 13 month limit.
This message is being sent so that parents and families can schedule physicals in a timely manner for the upcoming school year.
A FRIENDLY REMINDER ABOUT FAN BEHAVIOR!
I would like to take a moment to remind all parents, spectators and fans about appropriate conduct during interscholastic competitions. It is very important for the culture of educational athletics that spectators demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times. Please cheer for and encourage the Westford Academy teams and refrain from any negative comments/cheers toward the officials, players or opposing fans.
Westford is a wonderful community with very supportive and caring parents and fans. So please demonstrate this good sportsmanship at all times.
Good luck to all teams as we complete this fall season.
Go Grey Ghosts!!
