Coach’s View

Our team and school community really have a sense of pride and a tremendous work ethic. We have the potential to go deep into the playoffs and win a bunch of games. Our ultimate success, however, will not be seen for years to come, as we look forward to seeing our young men become great husbands, fathers, and leaders in our community.
