Boys Varsity Basketball · Question and Answer with North Ridgeville Coach Bryan Morgan

What is your Name?
Bryan Morgan
What Sport do you coach at North Ridgeville?
Boys Basketball
Are there any other sports that you have coached in the past?
Football and Cross Country
What is your favorite thing about coaching high school sports?
Athletics have always been a special part of my life. I love the competition, the teamwork, the life lessons being taught etc. Being a High School Coach I get to see young people go through the same experience that I loved when I had the opportunity to play. Being able to work with them on almost a daily basis to reach their goals is extremely rewarding.
How have you spent your time during this mandatory stay at home time period?
Playing with my kids. We are having a great time hanging out each day.

Do you have a favorite place you like to vacation?
The Florida pan handle.

What is the first thing you hope to do once the stay at home order is lifted?
Get our Spring workouts started and get ready for summer camp. I can’t wait to get started for the 2020-21 season.

Many athletes may not know you outside of coaching, what would you share with them that they might not know?
I like to train for long distance running events. Last year my wife and I ran a 10k and this summer we are scheduled to run a 10-miler. Hopefully next summer I’ll get a chance to run a half marathon.

Do you have any pets?
No but I love dogs and have had them in the past.
Do you have a favorite professional athlete?
LeBron James. He’s a couple years younger than I am. I got to watch him all the way through his career. I just wish he would have stayed in Cleveland. I don’t follow him as much now.
Do you have a favorite memory from coaching?
I have a lot of great memories from working with some great kids throughout my coaching career. The one that sticks out the most is when we made it to the District Finals. Every game you win makes the journey so much more fun. That’s why I love the State Basketball Tournament.
