RN: I can’t take much credit for that, all I did was try and put the pieces in place and the guys ran away with it. I’m thankful for them and for what they did. They weren’t doing it for me, I didn’t want them to do it for me. I wanted them to do it for themselves and their teammates. I’m thankful for them because they have allowed me to get this opportunity. I will forever be indebted to them and be indebted to Brownsburg just for the opportunity to coach at the level I did this past year.
JW: Before the season, you said this was not about wins and losses. How proud are you of the way the kids bought into what you were teaching?
RN: Yeah, I can’t be prouder of the guys that I got to coach. Starting from the seniors, the way that they led. We told our guys from Day 1 that it’s going to be a process. The wins and losses might not be what we want them to be and they weren’t, we were 4-9 for our first 13 games. Our guys just continued to get better and bought in.
We talked about it at the end, that you’re the first team in four years to have a winning record at Brownsburg, that’s something to be proud of.
I’m thankful for those guys, I’m proud of those guys, and I’ll forever be proud of those guys for what they did for themselves and just allowing me to be a part of it.
JW: What are some of your favorite memories from this past season?
RN: I really enjoyed our game versus Zionsville. I thought that was one of the toughest games that we played, hands down, all year. The thing about it is we had some guys sit that game and with the way that the guys who hadn’t played stepped up. Tyler Houston ended up starting every game after that Zionsville game; the game before against Fishers he played zero minutes. The guy just found his way, he worked his butt off to get where he wanted to go and he was able to do that.
