As the sports year closes out at Central many coaches are leaving, some retiring, switching sports, and some just hanging up their coaching whistles. The head and assistant football coaches are Scooter Register and Anthony Sessions will be ending their careers, leaving the Central Tigers football team with a strong 3-9 record over the past year.

“The energy they brought to the field is incredible and although they seem really mean on the playing field, during practice they bring everything that we need emotionally and physically. Whether it is a serious talking, getting in our faces or just offering some fatherly advice when we need it,” junior Ty Barrett said.

Football isn’t the only sport that will be making major changes to its coaching staff. Despite being the 2018 6A-7A State champions, the Central Swim and Dive team will be losing its team sponsor, Dr. Beth Maris. As the team looks towards the next season and defending their state title as swim and dive champions for the first time in 60 years, they hope the best for their soon-to-be former coach Dr. Maris.

“The entire team will miss Dr. Maris. We are glad she was able to do all the thing she did with her time as coach. We hope we can find some who can do those same things with as much passion,” junior Carson Traylor said.

Some coaches have the pleasure of being able to be a dual sport coach like Central’s very own Doug Stavey. Stavey has been coaching both men’s soccer and volleyball for the past year, and due to recent events in his life, he has decided to give all his focus to one sport, volleyball, leaving the men’s soccer team in the hands of the rest of the soccer coaching staff.

“I thought I would have him all four years and it really upset me when I found out he was no longer coaching soccer. I am beyond upset, and words do not do it justice. I am glad I was able to have him for at least these past two years,” sophomore Austin Brown said.

    We will miss our old coaches but I am sure we can manage with out them and do good in all of our sports with the new coaches.
