The Brook Hill School

A weekly message from the Athletic Director

“ALL ORANGE…All The Time”


It is the time of year when Middle School athletes at Brook Hill, who are involved in football and volleyball begin preparing for the 2016 season that is just around the corner.

This year, current Brook Hill students who are 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are beginning to hit the court and field in an effort to get ready for next year.

The Brook Hill Middle School Volleyball Athletes began preparing two weeks ago under the watchful eye of BH Volleyball Coaches Candise Wise, Erica Eden, Becky Knight, Anthony Springer, and Ivan Johnson as almost 40 girls began to bump, set, and spike by doing drills and playing intra-squad games three days a week.  It is exciting to watch the skills and techniques that these young ladies are honing in an effort to become better volleyball players, better teammates, and improve their physical conditioning as they look forward to next season playing for the Lady Guard.

Personally having the opportunity to stop in and watch the girls is extremely enjoyable for the Athletic Director as we anticipate naming our new Head Girls Volleyball Coach in the coming days.

On the field, new Head Football Coach Scott Ryle and his coaching staff of Joey Wilson, Joe McGill, David Collins, Jacob Agnew, Les Rhea, Brock Lemire, and Tim Moore have been conducting early morning meetings in the Kyle Lake Athletic Center for the past month learning Coach Ryle’s exciting new system prior to practices beginning.

On Monday April 25th, Brook Hill Middle School Football practice gets underway and the players and coaches appear to be fired up as they start to learn the new expectations, terminology, and offensive/defensive schemes, after spending the past several weeks conditioning and beginning their weight training to improve BH Football in the fall of 2016.

Again, having the opportunity to watch these young men eagerly listening and learning Coach Ryle’s new systems, is exciting for me to experience as I can only imagine what Guard Football will look like in August and September.

If you’re a Middle School Volleyball or Football player at Brook Hill, this is obviously a very exciting time as you begin to work with the coaches of each sport who make up the 20 member staff of full time coaches who invest themselves all day-every day in the lives of these impressionable young people.

The Brook Hill Coaching Staff is not only interested in fielding championship athletic teams, but they also pour in spiritually and academically to the overall well-being of each of our student athletes.

It is definitely a fun and exciting time to be a Brook Hill Middle School Athlete, and you can tell by the expressions on the faces of these kids who are greatly anticipating the 2016-2017 seasons and school year.

And that’s another reason to be “ALL ORANGE…All The Time”!
