Truman Patriots to Olathe South Falcons
The Olathe South Falcons have announced the hiring of Craig Lewis as their new Head Coach, and fifth in Falcon's history replacing Jeff Gourley who served from 2008 to 2015.
Craig Lewis comes to Olathe South from Truman High School as Head Coach from 2001 to 2009.
During Craig's time at Truman, he led the Patriots to a 29-63 record and two playoff births in 2004 and 2008. Since 2010, Coach Lewis has been an Assistant Coach for the Staley Falcons led by Fred Bouchard who is retiring at the end of this current school year. During the Spring season, Coach Lewis is the Head Coach of the Patriots Track & Field team.
Prior to becoming a Head Coach, the Suburban League is where Coach Lewis cut his teeth, with the Oak Park Northmen (under legend Keith Ross), Park Hill Trojans, and currently the Staley Falcons. Phil Lite has since been appointed the new Head Coach replacing Fred Bouchard.
Trenton and North Shelbyville, MO are also stops along the Coaching tree as well prior to returning to the Kansas City metro area.
Craig Lewis and the Falcons open the season on the road against the SM East Lancers in 2016.
The last time these two met, was in 2012 (32 games ago) in which the Lancers won on a single field goal by Will Humphreys.
