Through all of his success in coaching, there probably is not a doubt in anyone’s mind that Coach Ty Draney is good at what he does.

Draney has been running since he was 12 and has not stopped since. He has run so many races that he cannot even count them and has enjoyed incredible success in his seventeen years of coaching with his teams winning thirteen state titles; the boys cross country team accounting for six of those.

What makes a great coach? Draney said, “Someone who not only has the knowledge and passion to help athletes, but can figure out ways to make that knowledge practical and motivate athletes to do the work necessary for success.”

This is something that Draney does well enough to be considered for National Cross Country Coach of the Year. Draney says he enjoys coaching because he “loves watching people fall in love with the sport of running, do hard things, and reach their goals. Many times practice is the highlight of the school day.”

We look forward to having Draney coach our track and cross country athletes for years to come and cannot wait to see the successes of his teams.
