Day 1: State Championship Coaches Panel

The coach panels are always my favorite sessions because you get some of the greatest running minds in the state together. You get to hear their sometimes differing philosophies, their stories, and what makes them tick.

Sitting on this state championship coach panel are coaches of state championship teams from 2011: Doug Butler (Holy Trinity), Don Kappleman (Ransom Everglades boys), Frankie Ruiz (Belen Jesuit), Roy Harrison (Plant girls), and Jeff Sommer (Estero).
