Beebe guides Eagles to second straight state championship
Aurora Christian’s Don Beebe guided the Eagles to a second straight 3A state football championship this fall, earning a repeat nod as Kane County Chronicle Coach of the Year.
Vying for a third title in 2013 firmly is on Beebe’s agenda. The graduation of his son and the team’s go-to wide receiver, Chad, is not a deterrent. And forget the idea the Eagles rest atop some corner of the football world.
“So many people thought I was going to retire, move on, especially with Chad now moving on,” Don Beebe said. “I coached six years before Chad even played on a varsity team. I got into coaching because I felt the Lord called me into coaching and I felt the Lord called me to mentor young men. Did I get in there to coach my son? No. Now, was that an additive? Of course. But I don’t feel like I’m going anywhere for now, that’s for sure.”
