(11-8-17) Little did Shawnee Head Football Coach Frank Crea know that his last game as the Indians had man would be the final game of the season in the mud in a loss to Celina 49-7.

Crea in two seasons at Shawnee was 5-15 and finished this season with a 4-6 record, including a one-point loss to St. Marys 35-34, the Roughriders went 9-0 in the WBL.
Crea was the defensive coordinator at Lima Senior for three seasons before taking the job, he replaced Jon Carpenter, who resigned after one season with an 0-10. record
Crea has coached in the area since 1986. He was Upper Scioto Valley’s head coach in 2000 and 2001, a season that ended after one game when the Rams did not have enough players to complete their schedule. He was the defensive coordinator at Ada from 2006-2012, he coached the offensive line and special teams at Lima Senior from 1986-1999 and was an assistant coach at Perry.
