Northridge Head Coach Builds Winners on and off the Field
First-year Northridge head coach Ryan Lolley just won his 100th game in less than 10 years, but he isn't one to brag about his accomplishments.
As important as winning is, Lolley focuses on the relationships with the young men he coaches. He focuses on the life lessons that can be taught through the game of football. Lolley prides himself on being a player's coach, getting to know his players on a personal level.
"When I look at my locker room, it's what you want school to look like, your city to look like, your country to look like," said Lolley.
Lolley understands that every single one of his players comes from a different walk off life, yet they know how to come together for a common goal. For 21 years, Lolley has been impacting the lives of young men from Gordo, Alabama.
"It's the ability to talk to and see how my former players have grown once they left football behind," Lolley said.
Ryan Lolley is what's special about high school athletics and while he isn't one to boast about his accomplishments, he's definitely deserving of the praise. Lolley leads Northridge (1-2,1-1) against rival Bryant (0-4,0-2) tonight at 7 P.M. at Bryant High School.
