Spring Football Begins

April 27, 2016 Posted in: Athletics Tags: , ,

We are excited as preparations are underway for the 2016 football program and our inaugural season in the Gulf Coast Independent Football League. The spring football game is scheduled for Saturday, May 21, at First Baptist of Naples at noon.

Practice for JV and varsity teams began Monday, April 25, with Coach Stanford Rhule, interim head football coach, in the WA weight room. Later that evening, parents met Coach Rhule and some of his staff.

Coach Rhule is a native of South Florida and went to the University of Central Florida where he lettered three years in football. He was nominated for the prestigious Dick Butkus Award for college linebackers. Coach Rhule has been coaching for eight years at the high school level. Presently, he is putting together his staff, making an inventory of equipment, and planning strategies for this spring. If you have any questions, please contact the athletic office at athletics@wa.edu.
