Carl Albert coach Wayne Dozier picked up win No. 500 last week, adding to a strong legacy that includes two straight Class 5A titles.
“It means I’m getting old, really,” Dozier said. “It also means we’ve had a lot of good guys. Since I came back in ’05 it’s been year after year that we’ve had guys that are really good athletes and really good players.”
Dozier first started coaching the Titans in 1995 and spent six years before stepping away from baseball. He never left the school, but returned in 2005 to the field.
It’s worked out well for everybody with him in the dugout.
“Our big deal is building team chemistry, working together, playing hard and finding ways to be better teammates and find ways to work harder and become better players,” said Dozier, who will be honored Friday for his achievement. “Very simple goals, but these guys buy into those things. The last thing is being dependable.”
