After having multiple issues with their headset system in the playoffs last year at Jeld-Wen Field in Portland, Coach Lane Johnson and his Sheldon High School staff determined they needed to  upgrade their headsets. Coach Johnson wanted a communication system they could rely on game in and game out while having the peace of mind that his coaches would have clear communication throughout the entire game.

“Last year in the state semifinal game, we had to switch over to cell phones because our headsets weren’t working at all. This year we had confidence in our Connex system to get us through the game with no issues”, stated Coach Johnson.

Coach Johnson and Sheldon were new additions to the CoachComm family this past season. The Fighting Irish decided to upgrade to Connex and the results showed on the field with a sparkling 14-0 record, a 6A OSAA State Championship, and a #1 overall ranking in the state. As expectations on the field will be even greater next season, CoachComm will be there to assist Sheldon in their quest to repeat their state championship success.

“This year we had confidence in our Connex system to get us through the game with no issues.”

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.”
