HARRISBURG -- Talk about a homecoming.
Coatesville head coach Matt Ortega, a native of Dauphin County, will try and win the school's first-ever football state title on Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium.
Coatesville will meet North Allegheny at 6 p.m. in the PIAA-AAAA final.
"I've been to Hershey since I was a little boy," said Ortega in an interview with Philadelphia's CBS-3 on Thursday. "It's exciting to go back home and hopefully we can bring the championship home."
The Red Raiders are an unlikely team to play for a title. Coatesville was the ninth-seeded team in District 1-AAAA.
Coatesville earned a 42-35 win last Friday over La Salle in the state semifinals.
