Another season is nearly upon us. This year I will be coaching a new team at St. Xavier. Same school, but we're adding a team to accommodate all the players -- we are up around 180 kids in our high school program this year!
So we're adding a team called Varsity Reserve. It is composed primarily of seniors who for one reason or another are not playing varsity. I have 34 players; 28 are seniors and the rest are juniors.
This year my assistant coach will be Joshua Wellen (left, in the photo). I'm excited to have Josh with me. Last few years he was the defensive coordinator for the varsity squad. He played his college ball at Ohio State and is a St. Xavier grad too. He's a great guy, a great friend, and a great coach.
After the first few practices it is clear we will defend. Whether we can score remains to be seen. But we're gonna rattle some cages, that's for sure. :-)
