“I am extremely excited about joining the Bronco family as LBHS is getting off the ground.  To get the opportunity to create a culture of excellence from day 1 is something that many coaches would dream of, and I am fortunate to have been given this task.  I look forward to being able to impact coaches and athletes at both the high school and middle school levels.  I would like to thank Sam Skidmore, Jill Ross, and Brian Cope for giving me the chance to serve as the girl’s coordinator.  Let’s get to work!”
