It is our pleasure to announce and introduce our new Head Football Coach, Storm Ridgway. Coach Ridgway is a Richland Parish product having been raised in Start, La and currently resides in Rayville, La. He has been the Head Baseball Coach at DCS for 4 years and has spent the last 3 seasons as the Offensive Coordinator. Coach Ridgway’s previous coaching experience includes stops at Beekman Charter, Caldwell and Neville Junior High. He and his wife, Jessica Ridgway, have 3 children… Deacon (11), Ava-Tyler (7) and Gatlin (1). They are proud members of Start Baptist Church. “I'm just excited about sitting down with every player and coach and selling my plan for the program going forward. Having been on staff, the familiarity is there with the kids so it is just a matter of tweaking some things and continuing to move the program forward.” - Ridgway When asked about the promotion, Coach Ridgway was very passionate in his appreciation of his former and current players for both Baseball and Football. He stated that if it were not for them and their success he would not be stepping into this new role. He also would like to thank Board Chairman, Mike Martin, Board Member Doug Craig, Headmaster Brett Raley and Athletic Director Chad Clark. He wanted to also compliment them on the interview process and how detailed the search was. “I believe the most humbling part of this is that Coach Raley has been with this program since its inception. And to have him tell me that I was selected to carry the torch for Gator Football means the world to me. That was truly a unique moment for me just as a person.” - Ridgway
