Arm Mike let's talk a little bit about your journey if we can't worry grew up where you to high school and high you got to cap memorial. I'm not Arum a grad David Cook coach Ozzie for three years Annan's JV coach and the coaching change they had him his first years as. I'm as a varsity coach and embassy.

And once and moved home to do my student teaching I had calmed bread buster gave me the opportunity over kept come arranger and I was with him for fighters were to my way up the ranks as certain a freshman and javy. And then I get going to be adversity assistant head coach with them. And then I'm two years last years I was at Marquette high with Casey Kovil a ski and then I got my shot this past season program at the memorial so you do. BA name drop and give you life if I don't it was a really good coaches right absolutely have learned from about us again played for and Abbas also pastor can still knock down a jump shot by a little while absolutely if you doesn't wanna reviews brother can Georgia they don't pass through each other much I'm sure none of what they look each other awful Lopez and I'm just kept shutouts this kid. That's that's awesome that's youth club and it's a great program yes he graduation scalp and more there you guys had a good year. Yes I'm very pleased and am. Into taken over the position in the cupboard wasn't dry common there's a lot of at five seniors. And all of them played for Brohm played. Come either from sophomore year on an a but the varsity level side varsity level experience. Taken over first year that's difficult for them. You know when there's a chain she you're you're wondering okay what's his can mean as far as were were so used to being in this program. Knowing what what to blow or run and and now there's change and sometimes coach is going to say hey look. Kind wee tart but coach -- he did this at cedar berg worrisome look ominous start young. We're gonna go young early and wool will get beat up the first couple years what obviously we're gonna reap the rule rewards or was that ever a consideration for you. No no I was. The seniors I saw that we're playing. Like over the summer as -- we're gonna care read these guys and we're gonna sprinkle in some of the underclassmen and get them the speed experience and it worked out in our favor of the season. Chad same question for you well where you grew up and and how you ended up in south block he I grew up and cut a and graduated from cut aid went lead early ask us did not. Participate sports there came back Saturday coaching. What returned at the cutting a coached eighth grade my first year freshman spent the number ears of the JV coach RC assistant before a LE at the head. Head coaching job up and cut a for three years. Tom after three years and I moved down was with it a little at a time away from coaching and just and coach my son. And the opportunity came up join a cell block he. So while he's at night came on as the GD coached in debt for five years and that'll. Missed this year is my first here is Versteeg. That it that it's kind of like going from the Packers to the payers is now an illegals that it was definitely yeah I think I got cabinet and I return bat the courtship that AA had some. That's a nice thing sets me by the fans and well and you know what you can't really blame. Now right eye and I I kind of a actually I like the fact that they have the passion to say hey look and you can't leave cut it you can leave cutting hey you go anywhere you want. Except south walk and it's at the evil a lot the first few weeks of the season my first season insult lock you just. Didn't feel right. It is like what a lot of my duel and here but you know coaching with coach tree and it was just the phenomenal guy John good man the kids yourself a lot he was nearly. They give me a little heed some times but they were very well mean. Yeah immunities and it kind of like being an arrowhead guy coach and a Catholic memorial. Oh good of a little piece of me. You know that's my home that's for our grew up it's very a developed in. I enjoy going back there and I'm competing against them again low butter Lamar butterflies in that game then and the other ones. Judo coach and at Martin Luther this year we played against mass in the loop Coleman at Brookfield central. And that was weird I'm a mess we're got a wife agree you know my sister my younger sister older sister graduated from mouse works. And I still on the emcee for that to be with the charity golf event. At mass were there I see all these guys that either assisting coach played for me heritage Christian Bryant and so it was a little bit odd. To to do that but same thing at the minute Kent he of coach Waller chaps. We'd been there. I was there for a one time I brought him into that program from him and he ticketed and unbelievable level. And trusted to play I think this jurors will be easier last year was a little more personal I thanked. Effect and know that it was good to beat them that to continue the playoff run that we did but it. Yeah that's hard man that stuff is that its interest in hygiene and by the way how did you do against calorie this year. We did sweet cutting a slow as it was huge La where the victories was partly the highlight of the season and double. Double overtime victory. Arm you had to get our players. Now we talked about this bad there's some mud video on YouTube but that one there is Mike they were down four with point seven seconds at the line. Brett. Made the first when we cut it to three missed the second got tipped out the kid hit a three to go to over our current. Double double or oh man you are 000 point seven our own path and you have ads and it was at home I would know it yet. And I'll take it yet that eight Wenzel and yeah I just your especially as your coaching you're not the guy in the clock. But the guy in the clock keys you know like Ireland sandwiches so that it wasn't entirely his volley so the referee's hands were not up to it and they hand the start the clout. We know what you shrugs we we talked about it and in the timeouts with Kansas of the kids back solidly era almost in tears and Mangini coached. Kids in points and then sentence. You have something better to do right and four point play that yeah well that's a good idea and it worked so gradually issues on that. Mike and the difference between being an assistant coach in Ammann as she Chad to. And moving over 68 inches on that benched. That's a world of difference and a world if it is O I'm a much better cystic coats and was a head coach I believe that I I am. Q are you comfortable yet in that it head coach job. I would say yeah yup it's a little trial by fire as you go along but come. You know attended they're coaching boys are due to coach in basketball. I think it's more of the clerical stuff that you're not prepared for of going finding games in scheduling practices and overlooking you know not only just diversity team but the JV team in the freshman team in Lincolnshire and they're Dayton where they need to be. And and and make sure that that's running smoothly also and making sure freshen a JV coaches have what they need. And just in case that wasn't enough in the beginning of the year Avery came along right yes he has tree sit era first child. Little every yup first daughter S arm came along. And dumb. That had to throw those Cubs news hole rents as well all right was there expected due date was November 15 which should mandate two or day three of a basketball on try outs and you know I think the lord that she came October Torre 92 weeks before the season started so I got my two weeks of maternity leave to stay at home and helper on the house not a time with them and then. Basketball season third and in you know I think the lord from my wife and and I little girl being supportive and and and helped me through this process in every embers to and get she's doing great. I listening so 00 era congratulations. He. You should see him light up when he talks body for that's awesome so. I eight I told you guys this ID I believe that there's a special place. In heaven for coaches wives weathered and I don't know if amber to issue issue bask offhand but absolutely she's. She's only missed I've and he's six years I think we've been seven years ago together. On Mon Henican become the games that she's missed and she's sits right behind the bench is got a spot superstitious you want to sit behind the bench with their. And it even if all my family and parents are on the other side of the Jimmer as well she's gonna says she's right behind the bench you know alms. Every game so I don't know fits better and that she's that involved or I know that your wife Mary Chad is not she's not a big basketball fan. So what's what's good about that. Is you don't have to do you got no Paris yellow and I heard yelling that you that she can hear. I know that James is a fan now he's only player Eli you those basketball is part of the pro reason on the eighth grade team so he's. Hopefully he'll be old coach him in the next years to come I would dumb. I I envy you so much I view both you guys you know my kids now I have three grandsons that little cross street. But I get chance to coach my son Matthew and it was the best three years in nothing against any other teams I've coached. But those three years or calvary Baptist 67 kids in the whole school. It's seven boys and the best quotes him a call is the Caucasian invasion and we choose what and played anywhere yet but I'd I'd miss coaching him. It was really good so when you get that that opportunity. I'm Chad I would I would recommend you pick up a book called coach and or silent. And I've heard a Vanilla only to host dodge fill its in its coats dodge coached taped at dodge pro wrote it. Older book but man the lessons I learned from that been unbelievable guys we've got to get to break bread and Joseph from destiny. He's gonna join us he's probably the hotel room.

Guy that left a rival to call over to South Milwaukee that you know the rivalry when you were kidding culminate. South want to use that man is crazy and it was hard hard to find a seat I mean we panicked the fuel those at football games were unbelievable. You you to get there about two hours at a time MP four tailgate and then also I think that's coming back a little bit and I hope so. I hope so he shed doubt you'd head coach at south want keep mikes are at from capped the ball more also joined by Austin young we talked Austin will bit.

And the head coach at south more key Chad Donahue we're also joined. By Austin young here's our keep captain memorial student athlete of the week. We'll talk to him about being such good student athlete and 11 o'clock but I wanted to bring him man. Talk a Wilbon about the transition going from. I'm a new head coach your senior year Austin that sometimes it's a difficult thing for for a kid. Moses senior billions save program run in the same stuff and now this is transition how did that go for for your your group. Calm person knows. Us as a senior class we're pretty excited. With a new coach and will be we use that as motivation to to work hard form in practice and try and be as involved as possible during the summer and just take it as it is and work as ours bus blows him. Were willing to fight this season and you know we we don't need to spend much time with with with the Showalter think but there was a new coach and then. I'm for for reasons that that he was in studio and he talked about. Being able to get back to go public school. For financial purposes and it was he said look I love the kids out a cat two count more of been a great fit for me. This personally was was a better fed. And he didn't shy away from talking about it and an end of reasons that he did it but that had to throw this into a little bit of a loop is while. You know we we found out that we have a head coach in coach Showalter and I don't know maybe four weeks later. That was on and we are looking for a new head coach and then. Just two days after that we've found that we Coetzer wrath then. A lot of the kids at memorial are familiar with him. And know that he's an awesome as they had him as a teacher as in grade school so that worked out while you knew allow those kids my guess and yeah that it'd nice easy cheap while not easy transition but. You know different thing for you and and you were looking to be a head coach at that point I've been trying to be a head coach for like last eight years Welker and knock it alive applied to every job under the sun and southeastern Wisconsin. Well you know what good for Catholic memorial then there there of the lucky ones yet or we're very lucky net. Yeah that's that's awesome so we can week Ed Martin Luther get a chance to play you guys at the perfect time with it couldn't have been any week you guys came off a state championship in football. And then the category in scrimmage like the next. Day yeah they wanted on Friday yeah and then those guys are you combine in the next day and I we had eight or nine boys football players sit there. Cheer on our guys yeah I thought he did a great job with cheering that I was happy to see you got all the street clothes and stuff. And I understand they gave you a little motivation for winning three games at third. For south market you know we'd be played in the same scrimmage we also played capitol Mario and at the sure hands that was OK sorry for us via humbling when I was stride and to Saltalamacchia. Pitch or bust than go to the court of scrimmage that was listening to year's show and there is thirty some teams in the scrimmage and you'd. We're talking what every team that was in the said I gave twentieth yankees well in the third and ten at south walking down. I want to slowly kept at the caddies that hasn't. Point because the it the reason to believe in us except you know for us here is our best Millen isn't. It we did went off three of rush images that. And Austin he shouldn't be able to use me in the locker room like that I always adjusting to beat there are taken shots that's OK and that's what it takes. To send me a couple of bucks will call or you've been. Hate the the journey to you'd talked to me about this during the break. As we talked about the jury get into the cold senator in basketball. Similar for you are for football you've made his state cheers and roll. That that team that you didn't win was was rent her chief it was tough that's a hard when it come back from. And unforgettable and we use that as motivation the whole year this year in. We were talking about memorable experiences up in Madison and camp Randall's incredible and that first I'm up there we were. Taking it all and and then once we had the opportunity to get back this year is it was a business trip and we we ended up to. You took care of business. V dim memories of this year free you. Is it the game itself is it the trip up there is it hoisting that that ball what what will you remember us. Com the trip two years ago it was the trip itself. Walking in the camp Randall ripening. Stan what so abilities. But this year it's definitely. Celebrating yet you were up there to win that camp and you weren't out there to see any sites you care who's in the crowd it was. And coach young made sure of that yes and no relation right. Notes there Syria is tired we've got the best relationship there. If you ask them economize before poncho. I've I've thought about it I'll keep people from all different angles. I almost got him this year I almost had a moment try again because. You know what it's not even a thing where he's you only football coach in the C Wisconsin Oakmont but it's he's been doing this a long time. Andy you can't find anybody that cares about this school or the game high school football more than this guy he is a workaholic. You did eat I'll tell you my favorite billion stirred before you're too bright house coach in and to minicamp. And they needed a freshman football coach shows two freshman football coach stuff announced June stats for the varsity game. And we're playing them unnecessary afternoon it way fish bay and more it was up like. 45 nothing something like that with three minutes to go in the rented double reverse pass for touchdown. In after the game I was in measuring who's in there too and I said. It really the Jeb you really you need to do that eager you know like that nice notes in the dip batter that's not on me that's and you. And I walked to wake you went to about a lesson that was a lesson learned he's right. He's right in that sun on him he should he shouldn't have to stop call what he wants to call because. A word that any good. And I in that was Alou a lesson well learned from him. And I've talked to him about that like on I'm on that Friday night show and he said that was you'll make. I've really come doubt about it there hasn't mellowed out tells us is. You don't believe that Vietnamese. He tell some some pretty scary stories but I so. Will be. He makes it seem like he's been at that then. Minutes later it's OK. Do you want what the lessons you've Florida as a student athlete in 11 o'clock we're gonna talk to but. The student athletes side of this. But you'll carry these over for a long time when you win you win a geno we're going next you're closer not yet. What way to what are your options. Deciding between UW Madison for school and Milwaukee school and but that's okay. Two good choices for student athlete up that not bad. But the lessons you learned a captain Morgan and carry you over for awhile. Oh yeah. And there's those lessons that you talked about those little stories that teach teach as great things but. There's countless there's a countless number of those that I've. I've had the chance to learn under coach John for four years seeing them every day from summer until fall. And it's I'm I'm very lucky unit to have him as my coach Chad you warm before get to break. You got a lot of players at south want to play multiple sports almost everybody notes it forever stating that me evil and and one maybe two people. Yeah I think that's so important might same thing I'd let a multi sport athletes a cap memorial. And everyone of our players and throw our program are multi sport athletes after they were I think most of them are three sport athletes mean when you compete you will you can keep. You don't use a class gay played best of the football wise the best conference in the in the state of Scots in the hands down by a cure anybody set of agreed an NL go to argue with anybody up north anybody in the valley.

Retire to the head coach at Appleton Xavier. Matt corners played for state. Championship game meant. In division three they beat rip in the other day in.

From Celtic were more Rose while we're trying to reach Matt Carney the head basketball coach at Appleton savior. You're indeed the division three state finals today against press count to get his chance see that game at all. I watched a little bit of it. Yeah press cats get that seven footer over Israel dealer there you know I don't know how you push UMB a if you push him three feet out your fine. But he's seven feet east thick and he's strong. And he's getting where he wants to beat him and well tell you lake mills is fun to watch a hit to all kids all guard six feet. Our coach richt and at that thing Roanoke I don't know I'm a fan and has shooters shooters her dad is on the program for all over the place up and they are all six feet tall. And they double and triple team this this big kid from press that could stop them I think he had thirty yeah and then Xavier goes on beats weapon and I know first can't. How good rip in this. They're they're tough. And does senior team Eddie much at 36 on us Vander plus had 21. Xavier. It's just tough kids knocked down big shots they won 8174. That's can be a fun game to watch. It is and and he does a good job of we can't get ahold of of Matt it's OK but if we can we'd love to wish him. Wish him luck in and talked to by how he's Q stop that some floater that it meant did you guys know there's no seven footers around here this year was there. Who students of the no I know Thursday's South Milwaukee an element in the woodlands you know there and there wasn't really any I knew we had destiny. Middle season and their McGee and Bernard barnyard via those who know 66 or 76 days but. They want it they played like seven children and let their their wing span is exhausted about India to go against both of them so yeah it was it was a good experience is quite good actually played against this seven footer from press got a couple times and Owen. Oh and Hamels own Hamilton in a U ball and he's he's he's very great player the he he's gotten a lot better. I know that as a freshman software they weren't sure but. Then I know that shot it that Jeter's you have I don't know we'll find out where who we finally we did get a hold of of of the head coach at Xavier a couple hours before the players stayed final a coach Carter howry today. I am doing not real well and it's badly I think it. Meant. You know what that's I know first hand how good rip and his coach Rick coach of Martin Luther and they beat us by fifteen to get to that keen to play you guys. You guys played awfully well that was a good team you guys beat. That was an outstanding basketball team yeah there's actually no if ands or buts about it in there had been gearing up. For this moment for. A long long time and so I think I'm very appreciative of the effort that I guard forward and kind of an epic guy epic game that they played. Which. Allowed us to do it can't get another another shot today so yep absolutely. Absolutely not taken for granted and I'm very appreciative of the opportunity to. Hey coach I gotta ask you again watching your Ki im. Com and NF coach for a really long time and and it's so apparent to me when teams that guys really get along. And they date they don't mind making the extra pass and they don't really seem to care who scores. That that's very apparent to me with the Xavier team. I got the word we talk about allies trust. When the season start. We use. You've got a new team and a lot of those guys. You know I graduated last year. And we got new but you can accept it and spot and and these guys are apple Burnett that truck yet they want to ran yep that's it but as the piece that you. Yeah I get along off the court on lock room which also I would trust each other make plays. And that's a bit extra or to work in progress but yet it's group. Some little best place for us. Are you still their coach. You're about that. No no worries I I agree with everything you said with that it is it is different. And the fact that that I noticed that of just watching your team play I I I think got good good for you when your staff. And these kids coach quick question you want to give away the store but. What's the idea how you gonna stop the seven footer own Hamilton. OJ no we watched a lot of film lapped up 48 hours nobody else to figure out. He he kind of does what he wants and there. And in order Trier Bassett to keep the Bard is Eric it's been really really difficult because about. 77 in airports yet. And of the tried try to you know played our normal base help defense carp that still you know it's not backing away from what we've done for the last 27 games so. We're gonna try to the limited starts passing and that we regard typical look at that and then. And we really have not seen anybody else have any success doing it and I guess that's probably why press cups where individuals. They met its studio this is a young man named Austin young who played against say he plays or Catholic memorial. But he played against. Him a couple of times and a U Austin did you front him or did you. Wait a I guess you just try to push him away from the basket. It was Ted I'm. Fortunately catch the ball as far from the group is possible. Mean with him being seven foot and enters a that is there's a limit and you can use to. Mad at lefty coach yet coach if anybody can come up with something that I'm sure you guys could luck today. We gobble we watch in that game and and would look to see Appleton Xavier. Bring that gold ball home. Now I have obviously I we entire community up an apple that they think they were up front you know we've had. Super excited and the last in the season and I got to give our best shot no doubt about that thing. You've back coach thank you very much in again good luck today and my coach they did the nerves that he has to be feeling and I remember that part of that. You know just the nervous feeling like man. Is it ever gonna get here let's get to the sank. You know work or hang around the hotel we're doing walk throughs in this you know in this area and were doing a walk through over here in telling kids to go to their rumor. Or whatever it seemed like that day what it would take forever. You know weighed into it do we never could. Couple days prior late in our seem like a regular hour and then when you're ready for something like this it would Reagan era and straight not. And we try to go to other teams you do other things to distract these kids and it was so it was difficult guys it's get your break others said the break we will while once again talk with Austin young. In them and asking the question where is motivation is come from for being such a good student athlete 1115. Review the same with self walk he student out there the week.
