In each of the last two seasons, the Castle High School Knights won back-to-back Southern Indiana Athletic Conference Championships for the first time since 1982-1983, posted back-to-back undefeated regular seasons, and beat their crosstown rivals (the Reitz Panthers) in consecutive years. Furthermore, the Knights also won their third sectional title in five years.
For years, Castle suffered with their old headset system, having problem after problem, and according to Head Coach Doug Hurt, “always at the most inopportune times.” After doing a considerable amount of research by calling BCS equipment managers and top high school coaches across the nation, they decided on making the investment in CoachComm’s Tempest FX and, in their own words, “have never looked back.”
For the Knights, the technology is second to none. “We feel that Tempest FX provides amazing bang for the buck. It is the same system used by the top college programs in the country. We feel that it was an important investment that will pay off in the long run,” says Coach Hurt.
Coach Hurt reports that their team has not had one communication issue since switching to Tempest FX. “Not one. The clarity is unbelievable. It is crystal clear. We have not had one reliability issue. With our old system, there were numerous times we would have to try and all power down in the middle of a game. Coaches’ lines would go dead. There were times when I was swapping with other coaches. In situations where you need laser focus, you can’t afford the distraction of an unreliable headset.”
Castle has a championship reputation to uphold, so reliable equipment in the big games is top priority. Castle boasts seven SIAC title wins, six sectional title wins, four regional title wins, two semi-state title wins, and is proud to be a two-time state champion team.
