Dean Howell and his A. C. Flora High School Falcons staff are a team on the rise in South Carolina. They knew to get competitive with the best teams in the state, worrying about their coaches’ communication system was one thing they didn’t want to mess around with so they decided they wanted CoachComm’s Connex system. With the Connex system, Coach Howell and his staff work with proven technology specifically designed for the football market. Why would they choose anything else as CoachComm is the proven leader in sideline communications used by thousands of high schools across the country on every Friday night in the fall.

“Connex has made our sideline communication clearer and easier. It’s an integral part of our football program.”

 “Connex has made our sideline communication clearer and easier, freeing us up to concentrate on the game. It’s an integral part of our football program”, stated Coach Howell. Coach Howell and the Falcons have been working with CoachComm over the past few seasons and both look forward to continue developing that relationship into the future. After being an integral part of the success at Flora the past three years, including a trip to the state quarterfinals in 2012, CoachComm’s winning solutions and great customer support team have and will continue to assist the Falcons in their bid to repeat as Region IV champions and attempt to bring the coveted state championship to Forest Acres.
