It’s official, our AD, Buster Douglas was presented with the Michael Drake Award for AA this weekend at the GISA conference. The Michael Drake Award is presented to the Top GISA School in Athletics. With multiple Region Championships, Three State Championships, (including 5 in a row for our Shotgun team), close finishes in several other sports, Gatewood finally earned the distinction of being the Best in the State.
“I thought that this one of our most successful years,” Gatewood athletic director Buster Douglas said. “We won three state championships, and many of our other teams made the playoffs. It came from a lot of good coaching. We also had some kids that worked hard at many sports. When you work hard at something and give it all you got, usually, good things tend to happen.”
