B.R.O.N.C.O. OF THE WEEK
Camille Dortland - RHS Cross Country
Coach Dorzweiler on Camille...
"Camille is a dedicated, friendly and selfless athlete who leads by example as she betters herself and those around her."
What Makes Camille a B.R.O.N.C.O.?
"Camille is an optimistic and enthusiastic young lady who has a knack for encouraging and supporting her teammates while teaching camaraderie. She brings lots of controlled energy to the team and she has a way of elevating positivity and humor. She also knows how to gently boost lower morale or a less optimistic attitude when a teammate needs encouragement."

MEET THE COACHES...
Mark Baldwin - RHS Football - Head Coach
Name: Mark Baldwin
Hometown: Abilene, KS
What's Your Day Job (i.e. What do you teach?):
Maintenance/Groundskeeper for USD 407
How long have you been in Russell?:
I've been in Russell for 15 years.
What is something others may not know about you?:
I collect Brett Favre cards.
What's the best coaching quote you've ever heard?
"Don't be upset by the results you didn't get with the work you didn't do."
Why do you love coaching?
I love to see the kids find ways to be successful, on and off the field, and watch them grow from boys to young men.
REMINDER - Fan Ejection Policy
Fan Ejections: Any member of a Russell crowd, who is ejected from a game (by an official or an administrator) for unsportsmanlike conduct toward an official, or a participant, will face a one-game suspension. To be clear, they will not be able to attend the next game, whether it's at home or on the road.
Additionally, any member of a Russell crowd, who prompts an "If I hear one more word, that person will need to leave" scenario, from an official or an administrator, will be removed from that contest as a proactive measure. Quite simply, there is no reason for this behavior to reach that point.
A new KSHSAA rule offers a similar consequence.
"Any participant (player, coach, spectator) who is ejected for making contact with an official, or who is ejected for unsporting behavior directed toward an official, shall be subject to a non-appealable suspension from the next contest at that level, and for all contests at any level (in that activity) until the suspension has been served. Local school leadership may levy additional sanctions as they deem appropriate
It's very simple...please let the officials do their jobs, and leave them alone. KSHSAA has lost more than 500 officials across the state in the last year. We need to take care of the officials who work our contests.
