Work, you would be surprised at the environment here at Vance. We had about 4 years in a row where admin made some bad decisions which trickled down to staff and the students but with the new admin ( Kit Rea)... the last two years there have been little to no problems. Brand has it pretty good over here. They let him run his program. We are still trying to shed the image but when kids and parents come in... the first thing they all say is... this is nothing like I heard. It is always a work in progress and Brand has done nothing but contribute positively to the environment. The pride is up and we have more teams... following the weight room dedication path that the football team set... I.e. Our boys basketball team is 14-2 and the track team will be very good as well. Brand deserves to weigh his options and try to improve his family financially. We all hope he stays, but if a better opportunity comes.. I would be the first to tell him to take it and THEN sit on our coaching search committee to make sure we can keep this train rolling. Lol
Vance had a very good year. Regional final, conf champ and a win over neighborhood rival. Brand has had 3 years now with 2 very good seasons. That said we are only 1 year seperated from coaches throwing fists on the sidelines during a game and players having to step in the middle. So..you have to look at both 2016 and 2015 and grade them on the same curve.
Consitency is the next big hurdle. I always new Brand would win there, i was skeptical if he could maintain it over a 6-7 year stretch. Hope he does.
