Meet Coach Allen Aldridge | Coach of the Week

Week 1

Coach of the Week: Allen Aldridge
School: Bush High School
Years Coaching: 19

Why I coach: "My father was a coach, my mother is a retired teacher, my sister is a teacher…..I have a family full of educators. Hard work and dedication will take you far in life. "Class and Character" was my school motto at Willowridge High School, and I carried that with me my entire life. I always wanted to coach High School football."

Most rewarding/fulfilling part of the job: "When ex-players return and talk about what football has done for them."

Most misunderstood coaching profession: "Hours and time we put in to work."

Important school initiatives: "We have a football leadership program. We will do various things around the community. It is important that people see us in the community and not just on the football field. We work on leadership daily."
