Phillip Bowsman, head boys football coach and the school’s new full-time Athletic Director, said last night on WSLM that the interview process wasn’t all about x’s and o’s, but more about his philosophy.

“Sean was a perfect fit for our community, school and our players. He is experienced and passionate about working with our players at ALL levels (including elementary),” said Bowsman.

“The process of finding a new coach was challenging. We wanted someone that would fill a need in our school as well as our basketball program,” said high school principal Keith Nance. “Sean is going to be a special education teacher for us. He has the heart of a teacher and that shows in class and on the court. I am very proud of this hire and how it will benefit our school both academically and athletically.”
