Dear Cicero Athletics Families,
Hello and thank you for your time. My name is Jake Thomas, and I am the new Director of Athletics for Cicero Prep. I hope that I can meet each of you personally throughout the year, and witness the great things your son or daughter will do as a scholar-athlete for the Centurions.
I wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself. I have a deep and abiding passion for sports. I have been involved with sports since I was 4 years old, and have spent the last near decade involved as a player, coach, and administrator in college and high school athletics. I played on club basketball and football teams for my college in Idaho. I coached high school boys and girls basketball in Utah, as well as both boys and girls club teams at my college. I was an administrator over that same club program for one year at my college, an AYSO Assistant Regional Commissioner in Idaho, and most recently with Great Hearts as the Assistant AD at Trivium Prep for the last 2 years.
I am truly humbled and blessed by the confidence and embrace your Headmaster, Dr. Discher, and others here at Cicero have placed in me. I am very excited to work with parents, coaches, and especially the scholar-athletes at Cicero to build a program we can all be extremely proud of. I am working hard to get up to speed with the state of the programs we will be offering throughout this coming year, and will do my best to be available to you.
On, on, Centurions!
