UC Teacher And Coach Promoted to Athletic Director
By Chris Lash
Union City Area School District’s new athletic director is no stranger to the community or sports. Having grown up in Youngsville, Nate DeSimone played in four sports including, football, wrestling, and track. He also played baseball in nearby Tidioute High School, because Youngsville didn’t have baseball at the high school. While attending college at IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), he was a pitcher on the school’s baseball team.
He’s also a sixth grade math teacher at Union City’s Middle High School, and has coached track, golf, baseball and wrestling for our Union City Bears.
DeSimone was unanimously approved as the new athletic director at the April 18th school board meeting.
