ATHLETICS & ACTIVITIES
I would like to introduce myself and say thank you to the Custer County Community for this outstanding opportunity! My name is Caden Parker, your new Athletic Director! Sports are my passion and the students are my “why!” I am from the small town of Eads, CO and have a deep history in sports as a former 3 sport athlete, Middle School coach, High School Coach, and Assistant on the CSU-Pueblo Men’s Basketball Team. With that said, I could not be more excited for this year to come. We hope to see the COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted as our athletes continue to perform under the CHSAA bylaws and guidelines.
At this point in time we are anticipating a traditional start to fall sports (Cross Country, Volleyball, and Football) and are eagerly anticipating the debut of our new lights at Heinrich Field! Student-Athletes can anticipate a fresh start this year as we are able to resume a traditional schedule and many new faces amongst our coaching staff in many of our sports! My goal is to cultivate a passion for athletics amongst our students, drawing these young individuals to the excellent life lessons learned in the classroom, on the mat, field, and court alike! Our staff is dedicated to our students and excited to be serving this community!
Thank you families, students, and our community for the dedication, time and effort you give-- it does not go unnoticed. To our community-- we can not wait to see you all in the stands as our athletes, coaches, and myself will be working hard to continue giving you something to be proud of!
