Ted Aubin, Head Coach
1.) What is your prior coaching experience?
My first head coaching job was at Vernonia High School from 2006-2011. From 2011-2014, I was at Burns High School.
2.) What made you want to come to Reynolds High School?
Everything. I got married this summer to a gal from Portland so I moved back to Portland without a job in place. I loved my experience in Burns but all of my family lives in the Portland area and many of my friends are in the area. I was extremely lucky that Reynolds had a teaching job available and a coaching position open. I also had the good fortune of being offered the job. On top of all that, my mom and uncles attended Reynolds High School in the 60’s and early 70’s. My dad taught in the school district at H.B. Lee for 30 years. I have very warm memories watching him coach and riding home with him after games and talking sports. It’s really special to me to follow in my dad’s footsteps.
3.) How has the transition been and how have practices been so far?
Reynolds has been great! It’s a lot of work but I’ve enjoyed it. We are getting better each day in practice. Everything is new to the kids so there is a tremendous amount of learning. Plus, coaches and players are still adjusting to one another so hopefully there will be a great deal of growth throughout the year.
4.) What are some of your on-field and off-field coaching philosophies?
Here are some things I would like our kids to develop: Humility, unselfishness, sacrifice, work ethic, respect, and how to deal with adversity in a positive way, regardless if it’s on the court or off.
5.) What are you looking to instill in your team in your first season?
Work ethic, respect, humility, unselfishness, sacrifice, mental, emotional, physical toughness.
6.) Anything else fans should know about you?
My goal is to model and teach the things I believe are important for young men to develop for their future lives.
