After leading the Mohonasen Boys Basketball team to a 2017-18 Section 2 title and reaching the NYSPHSAA Semi-Finals, Coach Josh Peck is stepping down. In a statement from Coach Peck he mentioned his family as a big factor in the decision,”Yes, I have decided to step down from my position at Mohonasen. The decision was purely a family first decision. I have 4 children of my own, all of them involved in different sports etc. I really wanted to make the most of the time I have with them. My wife has been a saint for the 15 years I’ve been a winter sports coach”.
Coach Peck continued, “The coach in me will miss the X’s and O’s, the Tuesday and Friday night games, but the husband and father will love sitting in the bleachers watching my kids. Coaching is a passion for me and something I love but this is a season in my life where I’m going to be my wife’s husband and my kids’ dad.
Here a few messages sent to Coach Josh Peck on twitter regarding his decision to step down.

Thank you @Mohonhoops for all you’ve done for me on and off the court. Hard to hear the news. Much love and respect.
