Service (Anchorage) Numi Ilalio New Head Coach

Service's Ilalio, Eagle River's Brewer andBartlett's Esparza new.
Numi Ilalio is a fiery competitor who loves nothing more than roaming the sidelines and calling plays for the Service High football team.

"The two best places in life that I enjoy being is in a combat zone and on a football field," he said.
The retired master sergeant in the Alaska Army National Guard ended nearly two decades as an assistant at various schools when he became the Cougars' head coach this summer. He joins Bartlett's Daniel Esparza and Eagle River's Jason Brewer as one of three new coaches in the Cook Inlet Conference when the high school football season begins this weekend.
Ilalio handled all the play calling for offense and defense last season as the Cougars marched to their sixth state title but plans to relinquish play-calling duties to offensive and defensive coordinators this season.
"It's a good learning experience for our young coaches," he said.
Added responsibility for numerous tasks, from organizing transportation to ordering equipment leaves less time for game planning, but that doesn't mean Service will abandon a system that propelled the Cougars into three of the last four state title games.
"I've been running the same stuff for 14 years, just adding a little wrinkle here and there," Ilalio said.
It took Ilalio years to develop his system. He attended summer coaching clinics at the University of Hawaii, BYU and UNLV.
