Coach Derek Bury honoured

by Mr. Barry Ogden - Friday, March 27, 2009

The SJHS Varsity Football team honoured coach Derek Bury who has been
coaching at SJHS since 1988.

Coach Bury graduated from SJHS and has coached many different teams in the last 20 years. He has been with the football program since 1988. Coach Bury has a special talent that all good teachers and coaches have, he relates to his players and students and he cares about them. This is where respect and admiration come from; spending time on the front line with the students.

Coach Bury is at the school every night and with the teams every weekend. He is an unsung hero. This is what makes him and our school special, a tremendous level of commitment and sacrifice. Coach Bury's heart is with our students and school and we wanted to say thank you to someone who gives so much so unselfishly.
