Lexington--Northside Christian coach Stacy Bell has no problems tracing where the success of his football program comes from.

The Crusaders finished last season 7-6 and played in the SCISA 8-man football state championship. They are making the move to 11-man football this season and Bell believes the coaching staff and core players returning will be the key to any success they have this season.

“We can trace our success to those guys,” Bell said of his assistant coaches. “They care for the kids and do what is best for them at all times. It takes a village and these guys are the best. I can’t wait to get things started.”

Angelo Anderson will be the defensive coordinator. Adrian Despres will coach the defensive line and Charles Gee will oversee the secondary.

Seth Smalls will handle the offensive line duties and Andy Walker works with the wide receivers.

That core has been a huge part of the success for the Crusaders. Bell believes he has the right staff to lead them into this unchartered territory.

“Anybody that has our kid’s best interest is an asset to our program,” Bell said. “We have that from our administration all the way down to anyone that associates with the football team. I honestly doth think our assistants get the credit they deserve. They put in long hours with these kids and want the best for them. Anything we accomplish is because of that group of guys and the dedication they have for the program.”
