Top 5 Athletic Directors in Lake County

SHARE Top 5 Athletic Directors in Lake County

My wife says never put something on the blog that you wouldn’t put in the paper so that still works here. Of course this list is bias because I selected AD’s that are nice and helpful to me personally. Oh, well.

So here goes my list of the top 5 AD’s in Lake County.

1. Mark Pos (Warren): Always responds with helpful information. A natural people person, the former Warren trainer has found a home in this job. He even trots out his son Josh to sing the National Anthem on occasion.

2. Briant Kelly (Libertyville): Where did this guy come from? He treats the press like heirs to the throne. Kelly volunteers information on all of the Libertyville teams. He’s a great cheerleader for the school.

3. Steve Schoenfelder (Antioch): Seems to understand his role very well. Also does a good job of getting information out to the press. Willing to help out.

4. Trish Betthauser (Stevenson): OK, maybe not in her official role just yet but based on her behavior as a coach should succeed greatly in this role.

5. Is a tie between nice guys Rolly Vazquez of Lake Zurich, Troy Parola (Lakes), and Perry Wilhelm (Mundelein). This sounds like a cop-out and probably is.

The good news is a few of the terrible athletic directors have moved on and that’s much to be cheerful about.
