Nick Ruscetta steps down as Santa Fe Christian Head Football Coach

Santa Fe Christian Athletic Director Tom Seitz announced recently that Nick Ruscetta has stepped down from his position as Head Football Coach, effective immediately, to devote more time to caring for his father.

“Nick has been the backbone of our football program and a great mentor to hundreds of students at SFC,” Seitz said. “We will certainly miss Nick at SFC and we wish him the best in this next chapter of his life.”

Ruscetta stated, “It has been an immense blessing to be part of the SFC family for the past 12 years.  I know without a doubt that God cleared the path for me to find my way here.  The families, teachers, administrators and mostly students have taught me so much.  It is with a heavy heart that I need to say goodbye.  I believe this school is special because of the emphasis we place on service and sacrificial giving.  It has been such an honor for me to serve the students at SFC as a physical education teacher and coach.  It is now my turn to serve my immediate family.  I will forever be an Eagle and will continue to pray for our incredible school and its students.  My only ambition has been to serve Jesus and love our kids through athletics, and if I have done any good at all to God be the glory.”

Ruscetta and SFC are coming off one of the most successful seasons in the program’s history, advancing to the Division IV State Championship Game.  He has served as Head Coach for the last six years during which time he compiled a record of 39-13. He has also served as an assistant at SFC under former Head Coach Brian Sipe and has also served on the staffs of Escondido High School and San Diego State.

A new head coach is expected to be named soon to continue the legacy at SFC.
