Congrats to the Pinedale School District and community on hiring a quality individual in Mr. Kade Ferguson to teach and coach your youth. Kade will make a wonderful addition to your great town as a teacher, coach, and a community minded individual.
I have been around Kade since he was in middle school, in numerous capacities, and I can attest to the quality of character and other qualities this young man possesses and will bring to the classroom and the court.
He was a standout basketball player who started three years and was All-State two yrs. He led all of 3A in scoring his junior season. Throughout his four-year career, he was the first one into the gym and the last one to leave every single day. He made every singe morning weight session that we had both in the off-season and during the season. Kade knows what it takes to be successful, and he knows that hard work is the key. He led his team to the state title game his junior year and worked his tail off that off-season to further improve as a player.
Kade went on to play at Sheridan College, where he decided to go into education, enabling him to teach and coach.
It takes a lot of components coming together to find success in any area of life. Work ethic, talent, knowledge, ability to persevere, and support from those around you are just some of them. Kade is going to give it all to the classroom and court in Pinedale, and you will find that he is going to run a first rate program. I think you will enjoy your decision to hire Kade, so congrats, and through the combined hard work of everyone involved, I wish you the best of luck in restoring your basketball program to their successes in the not so distant past.
With that I would leave you with a quote; “Believe in something before results, don’t wait for results to believe.”For the complete article see the 07-05-2013 issue.
