Hefner wants to communicate
PERRIN – Communication in coaching is paramount to success. In the case of new Perrin Boys Basketball Coach Max Hefner, that shouldn’t be an issue.
Hefner has been involved in debate and speech since his high school days at Stinnett, about an hour north of Amarillo. He has competed and won several UIL events in both speech and debate but opted for a sports exercise and science degree from West Texas A&M.
He spent most of his time in West Texas, most recently in Plains where he spent last year. Using his speech and debating skill, he originally had plans to become a corporate lawyer. Early on in going down the path, he had a professor tell him that he would make a terrible lawyer but a fabulous teacher, so he changed paths.
Coming to Perrin was an easy choice after listening to new Athletic Director Ben Staggs and Superintendent Cliff Gilmore.
