Even though National Coaches Day was yesterday, the CHSCA Coaches Appreciation Week continues. We tapped Killingly Football's Chad Neal to contribute to the conversation. Coach Neal has certainly paid his coaching dues and has transformed the Killingly Football program into an annual contender. One of the keys to his success is building a great coaching staff. He shares his thoughts on one of his loyal assistant’s, Matt Sumner.
“Matt has been a loyal assistant for the past 15 years for me at Killingly High School. As a fellow teacher in the high school, he has always been an excellent teacher in the classroom and on the field. His quiet demeanor coupled with his knowledge and ability to transfer it has been a tremendous asset to the Killingly community.
As a Killingly resident, with two children in the high school, and a 3rd joining in 2 years, he has dedicated his time volunteering to coach youth football, basketball, and baseball on top of coaching high school football. He has never been one to want the spotlight, he is always humble, and puts kids and the team first!”
