Isang Jacob, the new athletic director at Warren, has big plans for the future of Warrior athletics. As a man who has a strong love for sports and has coached here for many years, he is excited to take charge.
“I love sports and I’ve always been around the teams and I coached here. I just loved working with kids and I love working with coaches, you know, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to continue with my passion for sports,” Athletic Director Isang Jacob said.
Jacob has big plans for the athletic department this year both for winning championships and bringing up Warren’s academic reputation.
“Well, number one is academic excellence. That means to make sure that a student-athlete is where they need to be with academics,” Jacob said.
Jacob has been around the school for a long time now and loves working here.
“I love sports and I've always been around the teams and I coached here, you know, and, I just loved working with kids and I love working with coaches, you know, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to continue, with my passion, for sports, my passion for working with coaches to become the best, support them with better resources and, helping them become better, you know, coaches for our kids. I love Warren Central,” Jacob said.
Although Mr. Jacob is athletic director, he really cares about student’s experiences in general.
“I want our students, you know, to be able to know when sports is over, there's life after sports. We have a wonderful Walker Career Center here, take advantage of that. You know, Mr. Sheppler always talks about this, do not be a 7:20 to 2:20 student, get involved in activities and reach yourself, you know, get involved,” Jacob said.
He is also looking forward to things hopefully getting back to normal soon in the athletic department, so that student-athletes can have more success.
“Just getting back to normal, you know, getting back to normal is what I'm looking forward to. Being able to see the smiles and student faces, you know, being able to, and again, that has to do with the outcome of the pandemic, you know, and how it's controlled, doing what we need to do so that we can see the smiles,” Jacob said.
