There is no doubt, it does take two to do the dance, which means it takes a team and a coaching staff. Each year we have a team and each year we have a coaching staff. But not since one of my daughters was a senior at EPHS (1979) have the Eagles gone to state in basketball. That year was a combination of outstanding players and a well-respected coaching staff.
We are especially impressed knowing this is Coach Wood’s first year at Eagle Point High School. We also know he had a strong background prior to coming to EPHS, but there has to be something special to see a brand new face do what he has done with the team in such a short time. This is not to belittle the players. In fact, we believe it shows they know how to work as a team, to respect the coach, to be willing to learn and change if necessary.
Sending our kids to state wrestling and to state basketball all within a couple of weeks can only improve the pride and respect the students and staff are obtaining. We all look forward to next year. Thanks for a job well done.
