LAKEVILLE, IN. – LaVille Athletics takes this opportunity to take an “UP CLOSE” look at our high school assistant coaches.
We continue our assistant coach series with LaVille Football Assistant Isaac Eash.
Coach Eash says:
I graduated from LaVille high school in 2016 and I played football, basketball, and track for 4 years.
After that I went to Indiana State University where I was a thrower on the track team. After my freshman year I transferred to Indiana University at South Bend and did not play sports. This past December I graduated with a degree in general studies.
I currently am the assistant to the athletic director at LaVille high school, where I have been for the past three years.
I have been an assistant varsity football coach for the last three years, and I have been an assistant and head junior high track coach for the last three years as well. I have also coached elementary and junior high basketball for one year each.
I find that coaching allows me to interact with student athletes and influence them in a unique way. My favorite part of coaching is being able to push kids to be the best they can be on and off the field. I have found that coaches can be very influential when it comes to teaching character, teamwork, and work ethic. All three are extremely valuable long after high school athletics are over.
This summer Lucy Zeiger and I are planning to get married assuming no more catastrophic events take place between now and then, and she just got hired to be a new third grade teacher at the elementary school! We are both very excited for that, and she is thrilled to be back teaching at her old elementary school!
