Chris HoodTravis Drilingas
SoutheastBoys and girls cross country coach
Coach Hood is there for all of his athletes. He has made me feel welcome as an incoming Freshman during even the pandemic. I am a deaf runner that relies on cochleae implants to hear. Each race he is in the start box since I run without my cochlear implants he taps my shoulder to make sure I start on time. He has learned some sign language and cheers me along my race by using signs . He never leaves a runner behind. He finds us slower runners and encourages us to always run our best races. He is always there to help us through a bad day or even when we are successful.
