Tradition. Excellence. Championship. These are just a few of
the words that come to mind when one describes the Jackson Prep
Athletic Department. When you really look at the accomplishments
of these programs over the past 35 years, it is truly amazing.
What is more amazing is how this standard of excellence has stayed
at the same championship level year in and year out.
There are many groups that are responsible for this continued
success. One of these groups is the boosters/parents. In my fifteen
years working at Prep, there has not been one year where the support
from our parents and boosters has been less than outstanding.
I am certain that, with the leadership of President, Larry King,
this year will be just as successful for the Booster Club.
The coaching staff is another group that plays a big part in
our success. It is my true belief that we have the best coaching
staff in the entire state. To be a part of
this group is truly an honor. Every one of our coaches has such
a passion to help these student athletes become successful inside
and outside the field of athletics.
The third group that is integral to the success is the student
athlete. Many times the total accomplishments of the student athlete
at Jackson Prep are taken for granted. It is a tremendous commitment
he or she has to make to live up to the requirements and expectations
of being successful in both realms. As a former student athlete
at Jackson Prep, I know first hand what it takes to make the grade
in the classroom as well as the playing field.
Knowing this, I believe it is actually our responsibility as
coaches and parents to support our student athletes in their endeavors
to achieve their goals, whether it be academically or athletically.
With this support, I am confident that being a part of Jackson
Prep athletics this year will be as rewarding as ever.
