SHC’s Russel named coach of the year

May 1, 2015

LyRyan Russel, girls basketball coach at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, has been named CCS (Central Coast Section of the California Interscholastic Federation) Girls Basketball Coach of the Year by the San Francisco Chronicle and San Jose Mercury News. Russel, a 1997 SHC graduate played basketball there and later for the University of San Francisco and in the professional ranks in Germany. He just completed his third season as coach at SHC.

LyRyan “stresses character and teamwork,” said Scott Bergen of the school’s sports information group. “He is very good at teaching fundamentals and preparing the kids for lots of different game situations, rather than simply coaching how to shoot, he coaches how to react to situations.”

Bergen called LeRyan “a master at making in-game adjustments. That is to say, we seem to always have a better second half after he has a chance to size up what the other team wants to do and then he is able to devise a strategy that counters their strength.”
