Congratulations to Chris Strickland, our Spotlight Teacher of the Month! Coach Strickland just completed another successful wrestling season. See what he has to say about his coaching career below.  

"I've been coaching for 18 years, 16 of which as the head wrestling coach (8 seasons at BHP and 8 season at Crescent).  I began coaching to help kids reach their full potential athletically and to reach their athletic goals. I remembered how much my coaches in HS helped me and I wanted to do the same. As I have grown and matured as a person, there is much more to coaching than wins and losses (although winning is important and most that know me would say I'm pretty competitive). It's making that young man into the best person they can be and a productive, well-rounded individual. Wrestling will be over one day for them all. My goal I have for all my student-athletes is to embrace intangibles wrestling teaches you and carry those tools in life. I truly believe there is no greater sport that will prepare you for life than wrestling.  The greatest reward I receive in coaching is seeing the success of my former athletes have in life. Seeing them enjoying life, with faith, family and friends. And when they come back and give me a simple thanks. That makes all the difficult times coaching all worth while for sure".
