BOCA RATON- The new year will bring a new search for premier athletic leadership for Boca Raton Community High School’s sports teams. Principal Susie King will be conducting a comprehensive search for a new athletic director, head boys’ varsity basketball coach, boys’ junior varsity basketball coach, and head football coach, as the school moves towards continuing their success as one of the state’s most recognized athletic programs.
“We’re serious about maintaining a premier athletics program, and I’ll be looking for leadership that will continue the strong traditions and success of our established athletic program here at Boca Raton. The Bobcat Athletics foundation is not built on just winning, it’s also built on excellence in the classroom for our student-athletes and outstanding leadership and values from our coaching staff,” Dr. King said.
Head football coach Eric Davis has decided to close a three-year chapter with the Bobcats, ending his tenure with an overall record of 19 wins, 12 losses (19-12) and one playoff appearance in 2015.
“I want to thank Coach Davis for his leadership and for his commitment to the Bobcats as both a former player and coach,” Dr. King said.
Boca Raton High School has finished in the top 10 of the Florida High School Athletic Association’s Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards Program for nine of the last 10 years in the 9A Classification – Including a third place ranking in 2016.
Parents and student athletes will be asked to provide input in identifying the key attributes they would like to see in their new coaches and athletic programs.
Information about all three jobs will be posted on the Florida High School Athletic Association website,www.fhsaa.org.
