WATERTOWN - A face very familiar to Watertown High School sports will not be returning to the sideline when the 2019-2020 school season begins.

George Palomba, a longtime member of Indians’ football, basketball and softball coaching staffs, recently announced his retirement from the high school ranks.

Palomba, who has done and seen it all over his time while coaching at every conceivable level (Middle School, Pop Warner, Travel Basketball, WOLL, Sandy Koufax and Babe Ruth baseball), decided it was time to concentrate on his varied roles in youth sports in the Watertown-Oakville area.

The GROWS softball program, of which he was a co-founder, will benefit from his accumulated wealth of knowledge, which has won Palomba recognition from among others, the Water-Oak Circle of Sports, the Waterbury Sportsmen’s Club as well as a Public Service Award from the Connecticut Secretary of State’s office.
