Faith Christian Boys Basketball
Eagles Coaches Corner
Andrew Hasz - Head Coach and Program DirectorCoach Andrew Hasz has been coaching basketball at Faith Christian HS for the past 15 years and has been the head varsity men’ s coach for the last 12 years. The mission statement for the program comes from I Corinthians 10:31 which simply states, “ Whatever you do … do it all for the glory of God.” God has blessed the boy’s team with great success in the past decade with 11 trips to the Great 8 in the state basketball tournament and 6 state championships in 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012.
Brian Wall - Varsity Assistant CoachCoach Brian Wall has been coaching Faith basketball since 1986. He started in the boys program, was the head coach when Andrew Hasz graduated, and continued coaching the boys into the early 1990’s. Then he took over the girl’s program, and under his leadership, they became a perennial state tournament team and won the state championship in 2000. After taking a couple years off from coaching, he joined the boy’s staff as an assistant in 2007 and was a key part in the 5-peat state championship run.
Rick Long - Varsity Assistant Coach
Coach Rick Long has had the great privilege of coaching basketball at all different levels for over 25 years, 15 of those years at Faith. He is returning to the boys program again this year to assist Andrew Hasz after coaching the lady eagles for the past few years. During the 2011/2012 season, he led the women's team to their first State Championship since 2000. Rick has been a huge asset to FCA's basketball programs, not only pushing his male and female athletes to greater excellence in their basketball skills, but also impacting their lives spiritually.
Kyle Altier - Head JV Team Coach
Steve Twedell - Head C Team CoachCoach Steve Twedell has been a part of Faith basketball for the past 12 years and has coached basketball for more years than he would like to have recorded. He has been very influential in bringing a running and pressing style of play to the Faith program and is an incredible teacher of the game. Countless players that have had success at Faith learned their fundamentals from Coach Twedell. He has coached at the C, JV, and assistant varsity (both boys and girls) levels over the years and is an invaluable asset to the staff.
