After spending 50 years in multiple roles on the local athletics scene, Joe Mogulich is calling it quits, he is retiring.

A longtime ticket manager and athletic director at Struthers High School, Mogulich spent the past 15 years as secretary-treasurer of the Mahoning Valley Conference (20014-08) and most recently the All-American Conference (2008-19).

He said working with former commissioner Clem Zumpella and current AAC head Rick King has been a labor of love, reminding him of a closeness that existed among teammates when he played football for the late John Hudzik and Denny Barrett at Cardinal Mooney High School.

“Clem and Rick are the two of the very best commissioners around,” he said. “Both were passionate about their conference and leaders who truly cared about their teams and the many sports that were offered.

“I was proud to bring organization to both leagues and took pride in providing paperwork for the monies that we generated. As a league and even during my time as ticket manager and athletic director at Struthers, I took pride in making sure that everything worked out as reported and was acceptable to the OHSAA when submitted.”
