In case you missed it, there was a good article about former Pioneer coach George Gwozdecky  published earlier this month.

The Denver Post had an in-depth article on his decision to take the Valor Christian (4-6-1) job and what it is like to coach high school players versus his prior coaching experience. He has taken all the changes in stride, “Being at Valor, I’ve got a lot on my plate. I’m a coach, a counselor and I arrange transportation. I’m the media relations guy and the occasional equipment manager. I think the only thing I haven’t done is drive the Zamboni.”

His voluntary assistant coaches are former Pioneer stars Kyle Ostrow and Tyler Ruegsegger. The students are excited to be playing for a coaching legend. Said one player, “He’s a very traditional coach, in that he’s strong and kind of scary. He’s like a father, almost, in that you don’t want to do anything wrong, you don’t want to disappoint him.”

The article is a good read.
