We didn’t have room in the print version of today’s Herald for two lists that show the spectrum of local high school head football coaches, so I will share that info here.
The first list includes the area’s eight head coaches who are beginning their first season with their respective program. The second list includes coaches who have guided their current program for at least 11 consecutive seasons.
Both lists are related to my story about some of the area’s consistently successful, longtime coaches.
Eight local high school football teams have first-year head coaches this season.
Brandon Christensen, Shorecrest
Nick Clovsky, Cascade
Andy Davis, South Whidbey
Mike Don, Lynnwood
Doug Lenker, Darrington
Ben Murphy, Sultan
Rob Petschl, Shorewood
Jay Silver, Coupeville
