Welcome to Kamiak Football

  • Dear Parents

    I would like to take this time to introduce myself to you all. My name is Bryant Thomas and it is an honor being named the new Head Football Coach at Kamiak High. I am excited for the opportunity to continue building this team into a program every one of you will be proud of in the years to come. Now it is time to get to work building relationships with players, families, staff and the community. However, before we can do that, I would like to give you some background information about myself and briefly outline my coaching philosophies.

    My football coaching experience spans over 20 years. During that time, I have been blessed to work in the various capacities of the game that I love. I served as a minority intern at the professional level for the Seattle Seahawks, coached defensive and offensive positions at the collegiate level for Washington State University (whom I also played college ball for) and Idaho State University, coordinated both sides of the ball and been a head coach in the high school ranks. The mission and vision that Kamiak athletics has for its programs and athletes is a direct reflection of my passion for developing the athlete while teaching how this game will build character and prepare them for life.

    My Philosophy for the program is UKNIGHTED WE PLAY F.A.S.T. Your child will be encouraged to play fast not only on the field but also in every aspect of life. The acronym F.A.S.T. stands for:

    • Finish- Everything you start (Games, plays, drills, chores, class work, etc.)
    • Accountable- Do what you say and say what you mean. Hold teammates to same standard
    • Selflessness- Put the team and program above myself
    • Team- Coaches, players, parents, staff, school, community = UKNIGHTED!!! Proud to be a KNIGHT!!! We are 1. (ALWAYS wear our colors with Pride)

    These will be our core covenants; agreement between each other on how we expect KNIGHTS to act and carry themselves. These are the character traits that our program will foster throughout my tenure here. We will build a successful football team with men of character and substance on and off the field. A meeting will be coming soon for us all to get going.
