Webb football coach resigns for medical reasons

Webb High School football coach Robbie von Pertz is resigning his position due to medical concerns a season after leading Webb to its first playoff appearance since the program returned to 11-man football in 1998.

“The kids were devastated to hear the news of his departure, and while of course sorry to have to accept Coach von Pertz’s resignation, we understand the reasons for it and wish him the best of luck going forward,” Webb athletic director Stephen Wishek said in an e-mail. “He has built a solid foundation for the next coach to build upon.”
