Most of the Blue and Gold Nation were concerned when we heard that Coach Joseph Gillespie was leaving us. He was very well thought of, both as a coach and as a person. During his time as head coach, his championship teams had enviable win-loss records, and he had a positive impact on the mental and physical development of his players. More importantly, he put together a staff that assisted him in accomplishing all of this.

SISD has nominated one person from this staff for the position of head coach, Greg Winder. The selection committee will consider Coach Winder along with other candidates who have submitted applications.

It is my wish that this group of coaches and support staff that Coach Gillespie put together remain intact. They have worked very well together, and the results that they have obtained are obvious.

They will stay together if Coach Winder is hired as the next head coach.

If you share this opinion and know a member of the selection committee, please let them know.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Respectfully,

Tom Mewhinney
