New Curie head coach known for courage on and off the field

Curie's new head coach Arthur Ray says "you have to show these boys that you care about them." Worsom Robinson/For Sun-Times

Arthur Ray, Curie’s new football coach, is only 29. Many assistant coaches wait years before getting a chance to run a program. But Ray has more experience—in football and in life—than most people his age.

“I’ve been coaching since I quit playing [in 2015],” Ray said. “Once I was done at De La Salle, I knew that coaching was something I wanted to pursue.”

Ray was an offensive line coach at De La Salle and ran his own offensive lineman camp before taking the job at Curie. He played college football at Michigan State and spent a training camp with the Miami Dolphins.
