He was also the Boyertown High pitching coach for 11 years and the Boyertown Grizzlies Junior Legion coach for two years.

“Although many know me first as a baseball coach, I have always coached with a football mindset and tried to instill the values ​​that my high school coaches and my football coaches junior (Yogi Yerger, Barry Menning, Breezey Ruppert) taught me,” Konnick said in the same statement.
