It is easy to feel exhilarated and immensely satisfied with the direction the club will be taking this year. We have 4 great men that have all stepped up to continue our club’s long and great legacy. We hand-chose each of them to take on this important responsibility and that’s because we have faith that no one would be better suited for the jobs.
It is with absolute pride that we announce that Brian Patterson will be returning as our Tyke Head Coach. This will be Coach Brian’s 16th year coaching with our club and again this year, there is no one involved with the club that didn’t have Coach Brian coach one of their children at one time or another. He’s a true gem!
At Mosquito, grizzled veteran Pat Kilmartin brings his 22 years of coaching experience to continue mentoring our players as our Mosquito Head Coach. Pat is respected as a passionate, caring and motivational coach that lives to build confidence and who truly admires spirit, dedication, responsibility ant team spirit. Thank you Coach Pat!
Our Pee Wee Head Coach is going to be Paul Gowans who, way back when, was a Warriors player and Warriors’ Coach in an earlier life. Coach Paul has coached football for 28 years and is respected throughout the football community as an exceptional coach, leader and mentor. He has had numerous coaching roles at much higher levels and currently is a dedicated athletics teacher at South Carleton High School. On a editorial note: he coached both of my boys at South Carleton H.S. when they still had a football program and on every level, he earned my respect and admiration. Paul is back and we couldn’t be happier with that!
Last but certainly not least is our new Bantam Head Coach Richard Baylin which has done nothing but win as a previous Head Coach at both Mosquito and Pee Wee. Coach Rich does it with such a positive, constructive and measured demeanour that he attracts families to our program. He sets the tone for what our program aspires to be. He’s a true gentleman that happens to have a passion for mentoring youth and football. What a perfect role model for our program, families and players! Thanks Coach Rich for stepping up.
Join us in congratulating these experienced men on stepping up to steer this year’s tackle programs. The Warriors will be playing in our 63rd year and we are so excited to have these four coaches leading the way. THANK YOU GENTLEMEN!!!
