The Galena Park Independent School District is proud to announce that long-time, record setting North Shore Senior High School Head Football Coach, David Aymond, will be stepping into a new role for the 2014-2015 school year.
“Making the decision to promote Coach Aymond into a position which will assist us in strengthening and sustaining our programs across the entire district was a simple one. His winning record speaks for itself, and we felt we couldn’t have found anyone who knows our students and community better than Aymond. Because of this, we stayed here in our own district when deciding to fill the new position of Boys’ Athletic Coordinator. With athletic participation and student involvement in GPISD at an all-time high, sustaining and improving the success of our athletic programs for our young athletes is imperative. We pride ourselves in being the extended family for our youth, and I can’t think of a better model and mentor to help us continue providing stellar programs to our students than David Aymond,” stated Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Angi Williams.
During his tenure as Head Football Coach at North Shore Senior High School, Aymond has racked up quite an impressive list of accomplishments which include, but are not limited to, 187 college scholarship signees, five U.S. Army All-American Bowl participants, five NFL players, thirteen District Championships, twenty straight play-off seasons and, of course, a State Football Championship in 2003. This last season also marked a milestone for Aymond as he and his team celebrated their 200th win, in addition to other records of his such as the state record for 78 regular wins in 2008, ten perfect regular seasons over a twenty year period, and eight consecutive undefeated regular seasons from 2001-2008.
As Aymond begins to prepare for his new role, he will be able to draw upon many of his past experiences such as serving as the 2010 and 2011 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Coach, Director of the Texas High School Coaches Association from 1997-2001 and Director of the Greater Houston Football Coaches Association from 1995-1996, just to name a few.
“We are ready to get started. David is a pillar in this community and having him share his leadership and mentoring expertise with our dedicated coaches and young men district-wide will only strengthen our program and benefit our youth in many aspects of their lives, both athletically and academically as well,” stated Vince Sebo, Director of Athletics for GPISD.
When asked how he felt about the new venture awaiting him, Aymond replied, “This transition will be one I plan to make with zealous devotion to GPISD. Teaching, learning and motivation will be applied primarily with coaches of all sports, not limited to just football. I am looking forward to serving in this new capacity.”
