With uncertainty in this system’s future, Thomas Extra School’s soccer staff made positive two constants will stay.

Following the conclusion of the 2017 season, former Saints quarterback and present offensive coordinator Trevor Stellman will take the reins as this system’s sixth head coach. He turns into the primary alumnus to steer the Saints soccer program.

“It’s actually neat. I’m enthusiastic about that. I do know our alums are enthusiastic about that,” stated Thomas Extra athletic director Terry Connor. “I feel Trevor will come out and do only a incredible job.”

The Conner Excessive Faculty graduate performed for his father, Tom Stellman, in highschool. He performed underneath Mike Hallett then Jim Hilvert at Thomas Extra. He and Saints defensive coordinator Chris Norwell each coached underneath Hilvert, then Scafe. Norwell has been promoted to affiliate head coach alongside Stellman.

“Each of these guys, they’re virtually yin and yang to one another, which is nice for me getting an opportunity to study underneath each of them, and even Coach Hallett who was right here once I was a participant,” Stellman stated of his previous two bosses. “For me, I received to see three totally different coaches in addition to develop up with one, dwelling with a head coach for my first 18 years. I feel every of them taught me totally different stuff concerning the mentality that you must have as a head coach, the alternative ways you get pulled. For me, that’s going to be the toughest half, simply getting adjusted to all of the totally different instructions I’ll be going.”

Norwell is an Anderson Excessive Faculty graduate who performed at Illinois. Their youth and native connections have helped the Saints’ recruiting efforts within the Higher Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas. As this system winds down its last season within the Presidents’ Athletic Convention, sustaining stability upon Scafe’s retirement was paramount.

“I feel it was essential, particularly when you will have two guys as gifted as Trevor Stellman and Chris Norwell. These two guys are incredible,” stated Connor. “I feel they complement one another so properly. I feel that’s essential and we’re actual excited.”
