RCCA announces new football coach PDF Print E-mail

Rock Creek Community Academy principal, Sara Hauselman, announced recently that after an in-depth search, the Sellersburg-based school has chosen a new high school football coach.

Donald E. Barnett, Jr. will begin leading the RCCA youth, middle and high school football teams immediately in preparation for the 2016-2017 football season.

“Mr. Barnett’s distinct qualifications put him at the top of our candidate list. His proficiency with dynamic coaching and athletic development skills combined with his exquisite communication skills make him the ideal coach,” says Hauselman.

Barnett’s academic and service background boasts a bachelor’s degree from the University of Louisville (graduates December 2016 with a double major in Political Science and Organizational Management), as well as serving in the United States Air Force for four years. His football playing career includes Trinity High School, Campbellsville University, and University of Louisville.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this school. There’s unlimited potential with these kids and I look forward to helping them develop into well rounded young men, as well as football players.  My role with Rock Creek doesn’t begin or end with football. This coming year as a full-time member of the Rock Creek staff, I will be an important part in students becoming successful in and out of the classroom,” states Barnett.

Hauselman concluded, “We are a growing school. Mr. Barnett comes to us with a strong and diverse skill set that not only addresses our football coaching need, but also our need for administration assistance. He will be an asset as he cultivates our football program, and a pillar to our overall academic organization!”
