John Curtis Christian High School is the very definition of what a powerhouse program looks like. In his 44 years of coaching the Patriots, John (J.T.) Curtis, has won 25 state championships (and 7 runner-up finishes) for the school that bears his and his father’s name. The late John Curtis, Sr. opened the River Ridge, Louisiana School in 1962 with just 16 students. Today, his wife Merle Curtis and their five children still work at the school along with eight grandchildren. When a program wins a state championship one considers it an amazing achievement, but winning 25 state championships in your school’s first 50 years is pure domination.
In route to their 25th state title this past season, the Patriots were the consensus national champion with five of the seven high school football polls ranking them #1 and Coach Curtis was named USA Today’s Coach of the Year. With a career record of 520-54-6, Coach Curtis knows how to dominate the competition, so when it comes to his coaches’ communications, he chooses the CoachComm Connex headset system. “CoachComm was able to meet all of our equipment needs, and more importantly, the support necessary to maximize its use, says Curtis. The bottom line is that CoachComm has delivered all they promised and more. I could not be more pleased with their company,” he adds.
The Connex system offers the Patriots the quickest and easiest set up of any headset system which enables a coaching staff to spend more time coaching and less time worrying with their communication equipment. As Coach Curtis tells us, “Time spent before a game needs to be focused on the players and the preparation for the game, not muddling through equipment issues. Connex solved those problems for us with its quick set up and dependability throughout the game. Connex is an easy choice when it comes to headsets.”
