Centennial forges ahead without coach Mark Ryan

Centennial High School faces many of the same challenges of other Oklahoma City schools, but those issues are on the backburner right now.

Head coach Mark Ryan has not been able to coach the team this month because of an illness, leaving assistant Michael Baldwin and a group of volunteer assistants to run practices.

“We’re not well-staffed, but we’ve had some coaches volunteer their services for the sake of the kids,” Baldwin said. “It doesn’t pay money, but they’re out here anyway, and we appreciate all the help we can get.”

Ryan had to step away the week before camp opened on Aug. 9, and there is no timetable for when he could return.
