Coach Jason Sellers sits at his desk in his classroom working on his computer.

Mr. Jason Sellers might be new to Pattonville as a health teacher, but he brings a lot of experience to the soccer field as a coach. He will be the new varsity girls’ soccer coach replacing Mr. Tom Iffrig who left the position at the end of the spring season.

With his 21 years of experience and 14 years as a head coach at Hazelwood West, he will take over the varsity girls’ soccer program.

“I coached boys’ soccer at Hazelwood West for 21 years,” he said. “For 15 years, I was the head coach for the boys’ program and for 14 years, I was the girls’ head coach. During that time, I was lucky to be at the head of building a program that was very successful.”

Coach Sellers gained a lot of experience over those 21 years and has lead his teams to 11 district championships. However for the girls at Pattonville, he expects nothing less from them.

“I expect the girls’ team here at Pattonville to compete for conference, district and state titles,” he said. “I also expect the program to represent the school and community in exemplary ways.”

Coach Sellers has already touched base with some of the girls on the team to get ready for the upcoming season.

“I was already a fan of many of them just from watching them play and compete,” he said, “but meeting them and getting to know them outside of the field has been a great experience.”

He also has goals for the girls this season.

“My main goal for the season is to get our girls peaking during the end of our season,” he said. “If we do this, I think we have a great shot at accomplishing one of our goals which is winning a district title.”
