transformational = recruitingNow we will see the Fenwick vision of "transformational"
Where are you going to be coaching at?transformational = recruiting
I played a year ahead of Pat Kreke at Badin as he came off the bench for the Rams his junior year and was a fine point guard senior year, worked 3 years with Pat when he taught and coached at St. Bernard, and Pat was always very much dedicated to coaching the kids who came to Fenwick and get the most out of them---sad this is what has become of Fenwick's pursuit of "success" in basketball. Pat did pretty damn well with what the Falcons had come through the doors for 30 years.
I'm sure Pat is not done coaching at 62--I'm jumping back in the HS bball game after 10 years watching my last two boys finish at Mason and begin their coaching careers---Pat will help another school immensely!:banana:
Lot of the comments were facetious with some underlying truth. I asked AD and principal what transformational meant and I never received an answer that I could understand. That leads me to believe that it is either a coach who coaches to please the parents or it is a coach that is going to bring new students to Fenwick (as in recruit). I have stated several times that Coach Kreke would love to have better talent, but he would never recruit players to the school simply to play basketball. To do so would be going against the old "Fenwick Mentality." If transformational is truly recruiting, then there are going to be a lot of traditional Fenwick families unhappy (can anyone say Deer Park?). Guess we will have to see if there are any transfers next fall.Congrats to cometcountry on getting back into the profession!
Can someone explain just exactly what the term transformational means with regard to the coaching profession? Is it a spiritual thing? I am not able to understand what the administration was looking for in letting Coach Kreke walk?
I have read all the posts and I have to believe most were written in a facetious manner. Certainly no one can expect HS athletics to come down to equal playing time for all involved. Is it catering to complaining parents?
I have read the bio of the new coach on the MUH webpage and he sounds like an impressive person but it would be difficult to find many more impressive people than Coach Kreke. Just a strange situation.
Welp... pretty sure Coach Kreke did every one of those and won.Transformational Coaches Teach
Family, Faith Friends
Skills that prepare you for the game of life
More interested in the process than the result
The journey is the reward
That failing to prepare is preparing to fail
Confidence comes from being prepared
Earn the right to be confident
Yep,, and Rossi before him.Welp... pretty sure Coach Kreke did every one of those and won.
Good luck, Coach. I hope that you do have fun. Hopefully, this will not effect the amount of quality information that you put out. Lol lolGonna be a "volunteer assistant" at Oak Hills at the varsity level/JV level--have known Mike for many years and he gave me a chance to get back on the bench--should be fun!
Thanks Hardcorps--I'll have to dial it back a bit during basketball season LOL, but I'll be glad to do whatever for Coach Price and his team.:banana:Good luck, Coach. I hope that you do have fun. Hopefully, this will not effect the amount of quality information that you put out. Lol lol
LolFormer Middie Moss eager for new basketball challenge at Fenwick
So i guess you are speaking in code now... but my question is what's the difference between Fenwick and all other GCL or parochial schools.. all others recruit... that's what private schools do... that, I can guarantee you, if they didn't their sports programs would suck... for all of you on this post two things and we dont ever have to talk about this again... Coach Moss is a family man who believes in education first... his basketball acumen is greater than anyone on this list (I guarantee)... if not why didn't you apply for the job... also if you really want to know how he is off the court - go find ANY one of his former athletes... enough said ...Let's Go Coach Moss... Good luck and let the haters hate.....My name is Alfred Milton and I approve this message.....Fenwick is a private school. Families and kids that are familiar with Moss may see fenwick as an option. Im not saying he will purposely recruit but he is well known in the Middletown/Hamilton area.
