After leading the Colerain Cardinals to the state championship game last season, Tom Bolden shocked many when he left the program several days later to take over the head coaching duties at Greater Miami Conference rival Lakota West.
With twelve conference titles and a 142-21 record, Bolden felt the time was right for a new challenge in his life despite his long history at Colerain.
Now a few months on the job, Bolden now knows the names of his players and sees the amount of talent the Firebirds have in the upcoming senior class and the many younger players who impressed the many college coaches who attended the Firebirds combine workout Tuesday.
First Star Football Report spoke one-on-one with Bolden in this exclusive First Star Logistics sponsored video interview as Bolden talks about some of his standout players. What he told his players when he took over the program and what his staff will do on offense and defense.
