Mr. John Brightwell

I have been teaching and coaching all sports for 32 years, I love what I do and do what I love. I come from a long Line of educators and coaches We play hard and we have all been prosperous in our endeavors to help young men and women achieve some of their goals. I have been one game away from the top as a head coach and an Athletic Director. I have pushed young men and women to be the best that they can. In one year alone the coaches that I have worked with have put in college 7 male students in division one schools for football, 3 males and 2 females in division two schools in Basketball , 3 men in baseball, Jr. college, and 1 female in division 1 school for softball. What is even better or funnier is that I have coached 15 of those listed above children both boys and girls. I have 7 sons and 14 grand children, 3 boys and 11 Girls. God said you didn't have any girls of your own so I made sure that you had them as grand children, and he smiled and said it is going to cost you an arm and a leg. My wife just smiles as she hands me the check book.
I teach 5th-8th right now and three kids call me Grandpaw, so life is good, no life is GREAT!! I love everything outdoors.

On a key note. “ Where else can a grown man wear shorts and tennis shoes and play kid games an get paid for it”. But really it is important that I have touch so many young people and help them to have INTEGRITY, LOYALTY and LOVE oF FAMILY
