    Congratulations, Raiders!

     

    It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that we must share some sad news.  Christopher Page, a young Coach and English teacher at James I. O’Neill High School, passed away suddenly on January 1, 2018.

    Coach Page had a can-do attitude toward the athletic staff and athletes.  He stepped up whenever and wherever he was needed.  He was a proud mentor to the student athletes and a conscientious, kind, caring man. 

    He held many coaching positions through his short time at O’Neill.  He was the O’Neill JV Football Head Coach for the past 3 years.  During the off season, Coach Page helped many O’Neill athletes with strength training in the weight room.  He was the Girls’ JV Basketball Head Coach this season.  He was also the Boys Varsity Lacrosse Assistant Coach for the past 2 years, and he was slated to continue in that role this Spring. 

    Coach Page will be greatly missed by all who came in contact with him, especially his students, athletes, friends, co-workers, and the athletic department at O’Neill.   Rest in peace, Coach Page.

    James I. O'Neill High School offers a wide variety of interscholastic sports teams.  Our sports program  emphasizes Sportsmanship above all else.  We promote the core values of Character:  Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship through athletics.  Our coaches strive to develop in all of our student athletes the following attributes:

    Skills and Knowledge of Game Strategies
    Fitness and Conditioning
    Responsibility and Fair Play
    Respect and Sportsmanship
    Leadership and Teamwork

    Everyone involved in the delivery of athletics possesses a unique opportunity to teach positive life skills and values.  Therefore, this educational experience requires coaches to project an image which exemplifies everything that athletics stand for.  Desire, dedication, and self-discipline need to be developed in order to ensure the commitment and personal sacrifice  required by athletes.  Making such a commitment helps to encourage a healthy lifestyle and nurture integrity, pride, loyalty, and overall character.  The final outcome is a better citizen carrying these values throughout their life.

    O'Neill feels that participation on our sports teams is a privilege and we expect all of our student athletes to honor, value and uphold the core values that our school embraces.
