St. Martin’s Episcopal head football coach and athletic director Frank Gendusa has been a busy man restocking his roster of coaches lately.

Gendusa has turned to an experienced, proven coach for his baseball program.

Veteran coach Bobby Ledoux takes over the program for the upcoming school year. He replaces Johnny Collins with the Saints.

Ledoux previously served as the head coach at Grace King and has been working most recently with the Jefferson Parish Recreation Department, coaching JPRD All-Star teams. He also served as an assistant at De La Salle. Ledoux coached at Grace King for 27 years. He retired from the public school system in 2015.

“Kids want to be coached, they want to learn, they want to be disciplined,” Ledoux said. “I really like the kids here. It is a good atmosphere. Brady Benoit and Johnny Collins did a great job in getting young talent and developing it. The future looks bright. I’m really excited about going to St. Martin’s. The administration is fantastic. We have the same philosophy of educating the whole child. We will not be afraid to play anyone, anywhere.”

St. Martin’s athletic director Frank Gendusa is ecstatic with hire.

“It was sort of a no-brainer,” Gendusa said. “Bobby is enthusiastic and passionate about baseball and will bring great energy to the job. I think it’s going to be a blast for a few years hear now. Bobby will also help with our football program so he will be a tremendous asset.”

Gendusa has hired Alyssa Pitt as his head volleyball coach, replacing Ray Scioneaux. Pitt was teaching special education in the New Orleans area and has coached club volleyball, doing an outstanding job for quite some time.

“Ray will continue at the school teaching science,” Gendusa said. “Alyssa is an outstanding coach and and an outstanding teacher which made her a very attractive candidate.”

Kevin Dizer, who was hired as an assistant football coach, is expected to coach girls basketball, a role he filled previously at Riverside Academy. Dizer served most recently as the head football coach at Riverside.

“The kids love Kevin and he will bring a lot to the program,” Gendusa said. “We played them this past season at Riverside and I was certainly impressed with him and his team. We talked the night we played and agreed to talk when the season was over. I was fortunate to get him to the school in January. He’s a hard worker.”

Courtney Ward left after this past season to become the head girl’s basketball coach and to serve as an administrator at the Academy of The Sacred Heart after doing an outstanding job in building the Saints program.

“The future is looking quite good for us at St. Martin’s,” Gendusa said.
