It’s not how you start, but how you finish. That old cliché sums up the 2012 football season for the Charlotte Christian High School Knights. The Knights, under the leadership of Head Coach Jason Estep, got off to a rocky start last season winning only two of their first five games. What the box score doesn’t indicate is the strength of those first five games and how three of those opponents were from out-of-state. The Knights came together under the leadership of their seniors to win their last seven games, finish 9-3, and claim their second NCISAA 3A State Title since 2008 (third overall.)

The Knights’ focus, consistency, and senior leadership were all key parts of winning another state title. These same attributes were key variables in Coach Estep’s decision to switch to CoachComm’s Tempest FX headset system prior to the 2012 season. “We dealt with a competitor for the last 5 years, decided to switch over and it was an unbelievable result. For the first time in 6 years, we haven’t had problems with our headsets,” says Estep. That kind of week-to-week consistency and CoachComm’s leadership in the industry are reflective of the Knights’ championship season.

“…just unbelievable and fully made a difference on our sideline on Friday night.”

The Tempest FX system provides Charlotte Christian with the same wireless technology used by D1 programs, but in an easy-to-use capacity, which gives Coach Estep and his coaches a competitive advantage on game day. “The use and ease of what we were doing was just unbelievable and truly made a difference on our sideline on Friday night,” proclaims Estep.
