Earlier this evening, the Cambridge City Schools Board of Education approved Ray Leek as their new head football coach. Coach Leek comes from Mapleton High School in Ashland County after serving as head coach for one season. Prior to his time at Mapleton, he had stops at both Marlington and East Canton High Schools. Along with his duties as head coach, Mr. Leek, who holds a Masters degree in Educational Administration, will also be spearheading the online learning program at Cambridge High School.
Athletic Director, Aaron Quinn had high praises for the newest member of the Bobcat Family. “Coach Leek not only has the ability to make our football program better, he and his family will also be a positive addition to our school system and community.”
Ray and his wife Jacqui have four children: Trey age 10, Nathan age 5, Sydneigh age 4, and Raymond 11 months. They are excited about the transition to Cambridge. “I chose Cambridge because I am excited for the direction our football program is headed. I have the same vision and goals for this program and feel the sky’s the limit. I also loved the support I felt from the administration and community. It’s a great place to raise my family and call home. I can’t wait to get started and become a Bobcat!” said Leek.
He continued with his goals for the Bobcat football program and student athletes, “I want to promote a positive family culture within the football program and develop our student athletes into high character leaders who compete on and off the field. I want to see 100% student athlete eligibility and maintain an honor roll GPA as a team. We will develop faster and stronger players in the weight room and on the field. Lastly, we will practice self discipline and mental toughness in learning to make decisions under pressure.”
The Cambridge Athletic Department would like to thank Administration and members of the Search Committee for their insight and support during the interview process. Luv Ya Blue!
