Chance Morland Named New Head Football Coach at Paxton

On Friday, June 28th the RPAC Rundown was notified that Paxton had hired a new football coach. It is a familiar name to folks in Paxton and the RPAC, Chance Morland. Chance is currently the Girl's Basketball Coach for the Tigers and a graduate of Paxton in 2016. Morland is excited for the opportunity to lead the Tigers moving forward.

"I’m most excited to build relationships with the players and parents of the Tiger football program. I hope to continue the development and success of the student athletes on and off the field," said Morland.

There are also some major family ties to the program for Morland which has him fired up for the position too. "Being a part of this program once again is very exciting! My father was the football coach while I was growing up. The gridiron is where I found my love for athletics. The bond between teammates is like nothing else, the memories and lessons learned carry on with you for a lifetime."

Of course, Paxton is in the 6-man ranks and Morland is looking forward to learning the style and building a program that boosts his players' abilities. "I look forward to the challenges of 6-man football. It’s a different style of football. I’m excited to learn the player’s strengths and weaknesses to form a strategic plan to find success."

Scott Jorgensen stepped down from the Football Coach position as he will have a new role within the school. "I am stepping down from football due to new possible opportunities within our school district....I may need more time in my daily schedule to serve the students in our district," said Jorgensen.

Jorgensen highlights what it has been like for him to be in charge of the football program. "It has been a great honor to be the head football coach at Paxton. All of the credit goes to the boys of our teams. We had successful and tough seasons, but the boys always worked hard. Even with the transition to the 6-man game, the boys had a great attitude and willingness to learn a new game."

Jorgensen had a record of 48-39 overall, 26-36 from 2017-2023 at Paxton with four playoff appearances. While at Hayes Center from 2008-2009, he went 22-3 and had a semifinal appearance in 2008 and a runner-up finish in 2009.
