“It is the toughest division of the three (Section Three Class D divisions), no doubt in my mind,” Pestar said. “Dolgeville, Herkimer and West Canada Valley aren’t new to me. They were the same teams we were trying to beat when I was here before. We’ll give them something to think about when we play them. I’ll tell you that.”
Cooperstown starts the season at home at 2 p.m. Saturday when it hosts Waterville. Pestar sounds excited to get going.
“I love coaching young kids,” he said. “I’m very excited to be able to do this again. Cooperstown has a lot of great people supporting us. The administration backs you, and the athletic director, Monica (Wolfe), she is there for the kids. I think we are going to do well.”
