One word has been used repeatedly to describe the perfect candidate to replace Buddy McBryde as the new Ellison head football coach/athletic coordinator: energetic.

“We obviously want to look at an applicant with a lot of energy; is going to be a good fit for Ellison High School and that athletic program; is going to be student-centered and success-driven,” Killeen Independent School District Deputy Superintendent John Craft said not long after the job opened Nov. 16.

        Great story! I really believe this story hit the nail on the head! As a parent of a former football player on Ellison High School I am really saddened to see the demise of a once great team! The four ideas suggested for the new incomming coach are spot on and have been some of the complaints I have heard from past and recent football players. I still believe we have alot of great kids out there and they want and expect great leadership that challenges them to excell! Its time to find a coach thats mission No. 1 should be to reinvigorate a team that hasn’t won a game for two straight seasons!
        Even thought I dont have a student there I would seriously think about being a alumni supporter!
