In 2021, Chrisitan County completed the season with 8 wins.
And in many ways, that was once in preparation for the instant the Colonels were given to witness on Tuesday.
Former head trainer and present CCHS Athletic Director Trey Wheeler took his chips and wager at the long run, getting ready the Colonels for the years forward in spite of the struggles that got here out of the 2021 season.
What mattered, was once getting the younger core arising in a position for once they had been wanted within the large video games.
A large number of occasions closing yr we had been put into positions the place we had been outmatched, however there was once at all times a plan,” Wheeler stated. “We knew we were going to be this and we were young. We’re still young. I think that’s the most special part about this. I expect nothing less next year. We’re back on top and I hope it stays there.”
Current head trainer Cole Isom was once on Wheeler’s body of workers when he was once head trainer and whilst he is aware of he’ll get a large number of reward for what the Colonels did this yr.
But he’ll at all times say it began with Wheeler and the tradition he established.
“He did a great job as a player here, did a great job as a coach here,” Isom stated. “While he isn’t a coach, he is very much a part of this program. He’s always there and I appreciate everything he does. He’s there to tell me I’m wrong, he’s there to tell me I’m right. We argue every now and then. He’s one of my best friends and has helped this program more than I can stay.”
And whilst Wheeler is in an administrative function as AD, he couldn’t be happier for somebody he coached with and somebody he calls a chum.
“From an athletic director’s side it’s obviously important for our school,” Wheeler stated. “From a coaching and personal side of it — I played here, came back and coached here. Cole and I have been friends since we were in high school. Then coming back and coaching together and the friendship we have — it’s the Colonel way.
“This program has always found success in the hands of Colonels and I couldn’t be more proud of him and the players.”
