While on the Pittsburg High School football coaching staff this past fall, Robert Shapel was bitten with the football bug again.
“I enjoyed coaching at Pittsburg and got to thinking ‘I can do this one more year.’” Shapel said.
“This” is play football. Shapel, a 2007 Iola High graduate, made up his mind to play profession football — overseas. He had a good source to go to. Former IHS teammate Jeremy VanNice played for The Bergen Storm, an American football team based in Bergen, Norway, last spring.
