I decided to apply for the AD position because I did not feel athletics was heading in the right direction. I wanted to encourage cohesion among the various sports programs. Football has always been the crown jewel of SPHS athletics and I was not content with that. To me, every sport has its rightful place and is due its appropriate attention from the Athletic Department. My vision is to create a sports program where athletes are encourage to play multiple sports and diversify their athletic portfolio. I look forward to a long and fruitful season, and a couple of district titles.
