With back-to-back championships and a 27-1 record over the last two years, Coach Wilson was interviewed by Coach Chris Fore for his Champions’ Locker Room series.
Below is an excerpt of Coach Fore’s interview with the Iowa Class 4A champion coach.
Question: What does your football program do differently from other programs in your league, conference, state that helped you win a State Championship?
Tom Wilson: I am not certain what other programs do. I feel good about our consistent work ethic, emphasis on multi-sport athletes, and an accountability system that keeps our kids on track with their goals and ours as a program.
Question: What do you consider to be the most important aspect of your state championship?
Tom Wilson: Winning back to back championships is hard. We obviously have talented kids but we also had good leaders. Our focus was to win back to back championships. Our kids did not lose sight of that goal.
