JH Boys Basketball - LEAGUE CHAMPS!

I would like to take this time to congratulate the Junior High Boys Basketball team on winning this year's league championship! After losing their first game of the season, these young men dedicated themselves to working hard in practice and determined in their hearts not to lose another game all season. Their huddle chant at the beginning of the season was "Warriors fight!" But as the season went on, their attitude and belief in each other grew, and they began breaking the huddle with "Warriors win!" And win they did as they went undefeated for the rest of the season finishing with a stellar 10-1 record.

As the boys will tell you, it was not easy. any times it felt like they were playing "five on six" as the elements of the game were stacked against them. But, as we all know, sometimes in life, elements are stacked against us. The...

Coach's Corner

FEATURED COACH-
Greg Williams

This month in Coaches’ Corner we are featuring our Girls Varsity Soccer Coach, Greg Williams. Coach Williams has been coaching here at The Rock Academy for five seasons. His overall record during this time is 37-32-6. His teams have had three CIF playoff appearances in the past five years and a number of his players have been selected to the All-League and All-CIF teams. This year his goalie Madison Phillips was named Division V CIF Player of the Year. All-Pacific League Goalkeeper of the Year

More importantly than wins and losses is the teams academic grades, which have been among the highest of any sport. This is because Coach Williams encourages his player to establish appropriate priorities. First and foremost he tells his players they “Belong to Jesus.” Soccer is a game to be enjoyed, but Jesus is the Son of God, and is to be loved, obeyed, worshiped and cherished. With Coach Williams and his players Jesus is always first and their Christ-like attitude is always evident. After each game his girls ask the opposing team if they would like to pray, and always the answer is yes.

Greg and his wife Sarah have been married for three years. He has three children, Melissa, seventeen, who is a Senior this year at The Rock Academy, Alana who is eleven and Clayton who is ten. Coach Williams says, “I love being able to coach the game I grew up loving and playing, to coach the game that GOD so graciously restored back to me has been a blessing. Watching the kids grow in the game as well as grow spiritually is amazing. The wins are nice, but the relationship with Jesus is what matters most.

Thanks, Coach for being an example to us all.
