By far, one of the most impressive high school coaches in the country is Coach ‘Ice’ Harris and he brings not only the knowledge of the game, but the wisdom of what it takes to be successful in the classroom and on the field at the next level. Coach Ice will tell every student athlete that first and foremost education is the key to success and learning the practical ways to achieve that success takes no athletic talent at all. All it takes is discipline.
Knowing Coach Ice for over 5 years now one of the things I heard him say in one of our earliest interviews that has stuck with me as well with sharing with other student athletes is, ‘Transcripts beat out athletic ability every time!’ Coach Harris has found may successes coaching at the high school and the collegiate level at the University of Miami. His love for community and his kids is surpassed by nothing more than giving them the proper tools to be successful now and far into the future.
As our educational programs developed Coach Ice was the first to implement them into his football program allowing our group to come in and mentor his student athletes throughout their football season which took them all the way to winning a national championship.
