Mark Kantor

Coach Kantor is in his 4th year at Wiregrass Ranch and has made a tremendous impact on our football and weightlifting teams over this time. Mark was hired to take over our football program that had struggled for years. After building a strong program at Gaither and Hudson, we hoped that he would be able to do the same here. Over the 4 years here, Mark has done just that. Our football team is now considered to be one of the strongest programs in Pasco County and a playoff contender each year. Last year's team went 9-3 and advanced to the second round of the state playoffs before losing to Lakeland. This year's team looks to be headed in the right direction and has a great opportunity to once again qualify for the playoffs. The impressive thing about what Mark has done with our football team is not only in the win/lose area though. Mark, and his staff has developed a culture of winning and doing it the right way. The expectation for his athletes is that they are leaders on and off the field. Prior to Mark coming to WRHS, we never had a team with a team GPA above a 2.7. This year our team comes in to the season with a 3.1. The job that Mark has done with the boys is the main reason why we are excelling on the field and in the classroom. Mark has also done a tremendous job with our weightlifting teams, increasing participation each year, especially on the girls side. We went from a team of 7 to a team of 34 this past year. His positive attitude and dedication has been inspiring.
