Joey Sanchez '95: Coaching with Impact

In 15 years as a history teacher at Barrington High School and nine years as head football coach, Joey Sanchez '95 demonstrates principles that he experienced both as a music student in North Central's Concert Choir and as a four-year football player with coaches that included Jim Miller '86, now North Central's athletic director.

"My philosophy is, 'what are we doing to make them better people in the long run?'" he says of his approach. "Maybe it's reinforcing that they should arrive on time, ready to engage in studying or practice."

Phil Munson

Phil entered North Central as a member of the football and baseball teams and chose to minor in coaching for the opportunity to pursue his passion in sports after graduation. He was able to complete an internship assisting with the administration of a summer baseball camp for children and develop leadership skills, which have proven beneficial in his pursuit of dual degrees in sport management and entrepreneurship. He hopes eventually to coach baseball at the high school level, in addition to owning his own business.

“The faculty are very generous with their time and expertise. Not only do they have the real-world experience to teach the skills you need, but they show you how to become a better person.”
