Bethel Park teacher, coach cancels weightlifting, tells players to shovel driveways instead

BETHEL PARK — With snow pummeling Pittsburgh and the rest of the East Coast, events, including flights, are being either cancelled or delayed.

Brian DeLallo, a teacher who doubles as the head football coach at Bethel Park High School, took to Twitter to announce that today’s weightlifting for the team was cancelled due to Winter Storm Izzy.

In lieu of weightlifting, DeLallo instructed his players to find an elderly or disabled neighbor and shovel their driveway.

In the tweet, DeLallo also told his players to not accept any form of payment for whoever they help out during their revised Monday workout.

DeLallo responded to someone who replied to his tweet, saying “I just did my driveway. Will need to make a second pass tomorrow. It really is a great workout, at least for an old man like me.”
