Athletic Director Gavin Watson announced Thursday that Emmett High School has hired a new varsity baseball coach.
Joe Jones, who comes from Winston Churchill High School in Eugene, Ore. said he is very excited to be the head coach and looks forward to getting to know the Emmett community.
“I look forward to working with the administration, community and youth programs to further develop a program that has a history of success. Traditions are an important part of my beliefs. By developing new traditions along with maintaining the current and past, we will be able to make an exciting connection with the community. With that excitement, I look forward to helping build the Emmett baseball community into something very special.”
Watson is equally excited.
“We are thrilled to welcome Coach Jones into the fold here at EHS,” Watson said. “Coach Jones brings with him extensive experience coaching winning baseball in Oregon for the past 20+ years. His passion for the game, belief in the process of developing young student athletes and his vision for our baseball program will help continue and expand upon our proud history of baseball at Emmett High School.”
