Shadle Park principal Herb Rotchford was looking for a man with experience to turn the Highlanders' floundering football program around.

He thinks he found his man. Alan Stanfield, 35, head football coach the last two years at Timberline High in Boise, has been named Shadle Park's head coach, replacing Mark Hester who resigned last fall following 1-9 season.

Stanfield has direct ties to state championship teams. He coached Powder Valley (Ore.) to a 12-0 season and state title in 2003. He was an assistant coach at Sisters (Ore.) when it went 12-0 and captured a state title in 1999.

An Albany, Ore., native, Stanfield played two years at Whitworth University.

"We think Alan brings the energy, the enthusiasm and the passion for getting this program turned around," Rotchford said. "The main thing he brings a wealth of experience."
