David Kilpatrick-White is the new head football coach at Hazen High School.
He succeeds Drew Oliver, who left to take over the Newport football program earlier this year.
Here is the press release:
Hazen High School is pleased to introduce David Kilpatrick-White as its new Head Football coach pending board approval. Coach Kilpatrick-White joins us from the staff at Bothell High School. Prior to his three years at Bothell, Kilpatrick-White spent two seasons as the Quarterback and Defensive Back coach at Ballard High School.
Coach Kilpatrick-White is eager to get started and continue the progress that Hazen Football has shown over the past few years under the leadership of Drew Oliver.
“Thanks to the hard work of Coach Oliver and the dedicated staff at Hazen HS and the amazing kids, the Highlanders are on a solid foundation. We are very excited to get to the work of becoming great underway!” he said.
Hazen Assistant Principal/Athletic Director Ed Crow is looking forward to working with the energetic Kilpatrick-White. “Coach Kilpatrick-White is an excellent fit for Hazen. His desire for his team to exhibit excellence both on the field and in the classroom is exactly what we are looking for in a head coach in all of our sports.
” He understands and embraces that his role is to be a teacher of both the game itself but more importantly be a teacher of each young man in the program. We believe he’ll be an innovator on the field and motivator of our student athletes. His goal for each player to reach his potential on the field, in the classroom, and in life in general connects well with Hazen’s motto of Pride, Unity, and Achievement.”
