Building Champions
« on: February 24, 2013, 09:07:32 am »
To Whom It May Concern:

It has been said, "Once a coach, always a coach". I apparently put a lot of stock in that saying.


After a two year retirement, I headed to Texas where I served as an assistant. We won the first 5 wrestling STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS in the schools history.

After my 40th year, I retired again and moved back to Georgia. I have been retired two years and once again have my calling. This time, I want to coach in Arkansas.  I have visited the state several times  (especially love Hot springs) and want to help win a title or so there!

I can be a loyal assistant or build a program from scratch. I can and have taught 10 subjects . I have coached FB, BSB, TR WR CC.

I was State Semifinalist for Teacher of the Year and have been named National 'Coach of the Year ' twice.

My brief resume is attached! Thanks for the opportunity to build champions!
