St. Anthony Yellow Jackets name new head football coach

St. Anthony Catholic High School (SACHS) has named Ed McCabe as its new head football coach for the upcoming season. McCabe currently serves as the SACHS athletics director (AD) and will continue to work with the school in that position.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to lead St. Anthony football,” says McCabe. “We have a great group of players returning and I am looking forward to working with them. We are working hard to elevate our sports teams to be a top-notch athletic program in San Antonio.”

McCabe brings considerable success and experience to the position having served 21 years as a head football coach and 19 years as an athletic director. He has racked up 123 head coaching wins in football. McCabe is returning to a familiar dual role. Before joining SACHS as the AD in 2018, he spent six years as both the AD and the head football coach at John Paul II Catholic High School in New Braunfels.

“We are very excited about having Coach McCabe lead the next generation of Yellow Jackets,” says Dr. Kristina Vidaurri, SACHS principal. “He brings a wealth of experience leading football teams to state championships and is dedicated to bringing out the best on the field. Coach McCabe has embraced the Yellow Jacket pride since his arrival in August 2018. We are also very thankful for the incredible work and enthusiasm that Coach Kevin Smisek brought to the football program. We wish him much success as he moves on to the Marion Independent School District.”

The Yellow Jackets are coming off a season that saw a young team go for 4 wins and 5 losses. McCabe will take over a team that will have 27 returning lettermen.
