Brent Thompson announced as head football coach
As of last month Mr. Brent Thompson was announced as the school’s new head football coach starting the 2012 – 2013 school year.
Thompson has 12 years of coaching experience, one of which he was an assistant coach for our school last year.
“I coached one year as a student assistant coach at Campbellsville University, an assistant coach for Elizabethtown High School for five years, an assistant coach for Pelham High School in Alabama for five years and one year as an assistant coach here at North Hardin,” Thompson said.
This next football season will be Thompson’s first year as a head coach. Being a head coach for a team is one of the things he has always wanted to do and now can finally achieve.
“I’m very excited. It has been a dream of mine since I started coaching. It’s a great way to continue to have a position important to young people and their lives,” Thompson said.
The football team has began practicing and bonding
“We have started spring practice and participated in the Day of Service,” Thompson said.
The team has started practicing early in hopes of focusing on certain areas on the team and become successful for the beginning of the season in the fall.
“We are working with offense and defense, we talk to the kids, make sure the kids finish up their grades as the year ends and hopefully get more athletes from others sports to come out to join the team,” Thompson said.
Although the season has not started yet, Thompson hopes the football players will take the program as serious as he does as he has high goals to accomplish on and off the field.
“On the field I hope the team becomes state champions. Off the field I hope the players graduate, become role models, become great husbands and become fathers,” Thompson said.
Not only does Thompson have high hopes for his players, but he hopes everyone around the school will also be willing to come out and support the team.
“I look forward to the community, school and students coming out to support as we continue the Tradition of Excellence here atNorthHardinHigh School,” Thompson said.
Thompson looks forward to coaching the football team.
