Bloomingdale Hires New Football Coach

John Booth has been hired as the new head football coach at Bloomingdale, athletic director Danielle Shotwell announced Monday.
Booth replaces Jason Stokes, who after one season resigned to pursue the same position at Middleton.
In his first year as coach, Stokes turned around one of the more unsuccessful programs in Hillsborough County. The Bulls achieved their first winning season (6-5) and earned a trip to the Class 5A region quarterfinals as the 5A-District 7 runner-up, where they lost to eventual 5A state runner-up Lakeland.
Bloomingdale graduates 20 seniors from the 2008 team, including all-county second-team linebacker C.J. Curran. The Bulls will return running backs Anthony Amos and Derek Johnson, who combined for over 1,100 yards.
Stokes was hired at Bloomingdale to replace Corey Brinson, who led the program for five years.
