Coach Weekley’s coaching philosophy is founded in Scripture. Hebrews 12:2 states, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” Coach Weekley believes that running can be a great teacher of skills needed for life: patience, perseverance, learning to give our best effort, and believing that we can achieve great things. Each practice ends with a devotional thought and prayer. One of his favorite parts of coaching is seeing each runner improve throughout the season, especially his son Grant who runs for KCS. In addition to coaching at KCS, Coach Weekley is also the Pulpit Minister at West End Church of Christ.
