Oakmont High School Football Coaching Staff
Varsity Head Coach
MY VISION FOR THE OAKMONT FOOTBALL PROGRAM
All who are involved in the football program at Oakmont High School will be committed to the continued effort to develop individuals that possess the character to be positive contributors to our society. The Oakmont football program will strive to support the school in all aspects. The coaches will provide an environment that will allow all players the opportunity to develop an appreciation for the importance of being involved in interscholastic athletics. The players will be expected to take ownership and pride in their participation in interscholastic athletics.
MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY
A student’s participation in interscholastic athletics plays a major role in his/her development. Therefore, it is vital for coaches to give their players their very best and in turn expect the very best from their players. Coaches have chosen to be leaders so they should lead by example. The field of play is an extension of the classroom. The same teaching styles and methodology that are relevant in the classroom are relevant outside the classroom. Like teachers, coaches must be proactive to ensure a positive line of communication with their players and parents alike. Program rules and expectations should be clearly stated so that all issues can be dealt with properly to uphold the integrity of the program and the school it represents.
The success of a program is a result of a coaches’ desire to prepare. Thorough preparation builds confidence and a sense of invincibility. However, a lack of preparation breeds uncertainty and a loss of control. Everyone has the ability to prepare, not everyone has the desire to not be out-prepared.
My goal has always been to be the head coach of a program, not just a team. I will be the leader of a program that will provide all that are involved with an experience that will last a lifetime. I will run a program that is confident and in control because of our preparation. I will lead by example and demand that the Oakmont Football Program be an excellent representation of Oakmont High School and our community.
