Coaches drawn to Bowie schools, AD calls them ‘one big family’

Jackrabbit coaching staff

By ERIC VICCARO
Bowie athletic director Dylan Stark has helped foster a strong athletic program with talented coaches.
It’s another one of the ways, we are “building a better Bowie.”
“I feel like it’s a great place to work,” said Stark, who has been athletic director for more than half a decade. “We have really good kids, and there’s not a lot of turnover.”
Stark also credited Bowie’s facilities with helping attract coaches to the community, which were built through passage of a bond issue in the late-2000s.
“I want a place where people enjoy their job,” Stark said.
The current coaching staff has built longstanding lifetime relationships with each other.
Quentin Berend was working as a coach in the Alvord Independent School District when he received a call from Stark, who he knew from Windthorst.
“I knew it would be good to work with him,” said Berend, who serves as Bowie’s offensive coordinator and powerlifting coach.
