Amboy High School has hired Scott Payne as the new head football coach of the Clippers.
Payne is a 1997 graduate of Amboy High School and has spent the past 16 seasons as an assistant football coach at Amboy, most recently being the F/S coach.
Payne says, “This is very exciting for me. When I was a junior in high school, I told myself then that I want to coach here. I’m looking forward to taking over the program. I can’t describe it in words other than I am really excited.”
Payne takes over for Gary Jones who retired after 26 seasons this past fall as the head coach of the Amboy Clippers.
Scott Payne becomes only the 3rd head football coach at Amboy since 1974.
