After working at Westminster High School the last four years as the JV head coach (seven years in football program), 31-year-old Dayne Allbrandt earned a promotion to become head coach of the Wolves June 12.
“Excitement is through the roof,” Allbrandt said in an email last week. “We have a great group of athletes anchored by a strong core of returners who are collectively transitioning into greater leadership roles.”
Allbrandt, who is also the head coach for boys and girls track, hopes to build off of the success and foundation that former head coach Kerry Denison set in his nine years leading the program. The first-year varsity head coach will be inheriting a 7-3 team that had their best finish since 2015.
“I began my teaching and coaching career at Westminster High School in 2012. Being a JV coach allowed me to truly appreciate the game of football and the unique challenges each day brings. Going from playing to coaching created a new level of love for football. One of the greatest lessons I have learned during this time is the importance of remaining a student of the game.”
“As a head coach, I will bring an organizational structure based off commitment, communication, reflection, and trust. These leadership qualities will be this year’s foundation for not only creating opportunities for athletes to display their talents but also preparing future leaders, learners, and thinkers for a global community. Coaching football is an opportunity to help build athletes into confident individuals who realize their potential in this life is limitless. I want to create an experience these athletes can look back on and be proud of the legacy left behind.”
