Head Coach Charlie Ragle led Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, to their second consecutive state title – using the Connex® sideline communications system from CoachComm.
Win a state championship in a football-rich state like Arizona and your high school team will be recognized for their significant accomplishment. Win back-to-back championships and get mentioned as the early favorite for a third and you become part of the national conversation as one of the top teams in the country.
That’s where Head Coach Charlie Ragle and his staff have taken the Firebirds of Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona. Last year, in what one writer called “one of the greatest seasons in Arizona high school football history,” Chaparral went 14-0, captured their second consecutive Arizona 5A Division II championship, outscored their opponents by a whopping 727-130 and landed in ESPN’s national top 25.
For a season like that to happen, all the elements must come together. Not just talent on the field and solid Xs and Os, but a committed, unified coaching staff and every aspect of program management – including finding and utilizing technology tools that can be relied upon in high-pressure situations.
Perhaps the most fundamentally-important tech tool for a coaching staff is a wireless headset system that provides clear, reliable game-time communication between coaches. For Coach Charlie Ragle and the Chaparral coaching staff, that system is Connex from CoachComm.
Used by thousands of high schools and small colleges across the country, the Connex system is compact for easy transporting and it’s quick and easy to set up on game day – allowing coaches to spend more time coaching. The hands-free beltpack has a battery meter to measure the charge on the lithium ION batteries, which provide up to 16 hours continuous use on a single charge. Most importantly, Connex provides superior sound quality and reliable performance that eliminates interference from any outside sources that could disrupt crucial communications between coaches during a critical game.
CoachComm, a trusted leader in communications for over 20 years, is trusted by champions like Chaparral. To find out more, AFM asked Coach Charlie Ragle how Connex has made a positive impact on his sideline communications.
