    Veteran football coach Jerry Davitch is returning to the sidelines not too far from where his life in football began. 

    The Greater Johnstown graduate and former coach at Greater Johnstown and Conemaugh Township at the high school level in Pennsylvania was named the 21st head coach in the history of the Bishop McCort Catholic football program on Tuesday. 
    Davitch replaces Kevin Sheridan, who stepped away from the position because of concerns over the health of his infant son, Owen.
