Brian Hill, the head football coach at Garden City High School, was chosen as the Hutchinson Community College Profile of the Month. Hill was an assistant coach for the Blue Dragons’ football team from 1995 to 2000.
“My time at HCC was very valuable to me as a young coach,” Hill said. “I learned how important creating positive relationships with players from Andy Hill. I also learned how to prepare week to week for your opponents. I was surrounded by some very good veteran coaches who taught me how to use my practice time wisely. I feel my five years there at HCC really set the table for me as a young coach that helped provide me with the skills necessary to eventually become a head coach.”
Being able to grow as a coach from a scheme-standpoint was also a valuable asset Hill gained during his time in Hutchinson.
“As far as X’s and O’s I really learned how to put plays together and how to call a game offensively, the game has really changed schematically but how to put plays together hasn’t,” Hill said.
Hill has gone 68-51 in 13 seasons as the head coach of the Buffaloes.
This season, they are off to a 3-0 start.
“Our three goals every year are to win our conference, beat Dodge City and compete for a state championship,” Hill said.
