GARRETTSVILLE OH- Don’t adjust your screen, even though we are talking with Aaron Gilbert, it is not basketball season. Coach Gilbert coaches more than just girls basketball at Garfield, he’s also the head coach of the Girls Soccer team. It wasn’t a job he expected to last for seven seasons, but it seems everywhere he goes success follows. What started as just a way to make sure the student athletes have the experience they deserve from a sport turned into a program that has had plenty of success. This season, Garfield is as athletic as anybody, but they are a young group. Coach Gilbert’s ability to develop players over the course of a a season will be put to the test.
Coach Gilbert took the time to talk with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig about the current season they are in. They discuss why experiences in high school athletics is so important, what Garfield is capable of this season, and so much more.
