Coach David-Paul ‘D.P.’ Daigle has been head cross country coach since 2013. In that time he has led the team to five top three finishes at the State Meet, including one State Championship in 2014. Daigle’s teams won the Division three times in his tenure and were runners-up the other three years.   

He has coached nine young men to All-State Honors and had one individual State Champion.   

Coach Daigle uses the scientific methods of renowned distance coach Jack Daniels as well as some philosophies of coaching legend Bill Bowerman. Daigle’s favorite part of cross country is the individual improvements his runners make over the course of the season. They are able to do this under his guidance with their own hard work.   

His biggest accomplishment as a coach came when he was named Coach of the Year for Cross Country by the Mississippi Association of Coaches in 2014.
