Another coaching position at Warren County High School has been filled.Orion Smith was named Tuesday as the new WCHS boys soccer coach, replacing Todd Willmore following his resignation in May after six years coaching the Pioneers.Willmore, also the school’s athletic director, was one of the main people who decided Smith would be the worthy replacement for the boys soccer team. Smith has been an assistant coach for Willmore on both the girls and boys soccer teams for the last two years.Willmore believes Smith’s familiarity with the team, along with his passion for the game, was too much to pass up when making the hire.“Orion has developed a strong relationship with many of our returning players and will bring youthful enthusiasm, a solid background in soccer and a strong value system to our program,” Willmore said in a statement released Tuesday. “We are extremely excited about the possibilities of Orion continuing to strengthen the culture of our soccer program.”Smith couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.
