The Centerville hockey program will be led by a familiar face this upcoming winter due to the military reassignment of last year’s head coach, Dylan Abood.
Tim Evans, who coached the Elks from 1988-2004 and built them into a state power, has come out of retirement to try to return the program to state prominence. During his previous tenure, the Elks posted a record of 327-175-23. In an unprecedented seven-year run from the 1995-1996 season all the way through the 2002-2003 season, the Elks made it to the state final four the first two seasons and the Elite Eight the last five. He won 10 league championships and finished runner-up four other times during his previous, 16-year stint as the head coach. He also led the Elks to nine league tournament championships and two runner-up finishes in the 11 years the league had a postseason tourney. He coached the Elks to the six best seasons in school history record-wise, going a school record 24-6 (.800) in the 1989-1990 season. They won a school record 26 games during the 2001-2002 season.
Please join all of us in welcoming back head hockey coach, Tim Evans.
