Coach Kilpatrick-White joins the Highlanders from the staff at Bothell High School.Prior to his three years at Bothell, Kilpatrick-White spent two seasons as the Quarterback and Defensive Back coach at Ballard High School.

Kilpatrick-White is eager to get started and continue the progress that Hazen Football has shown over the past few years under the leadership of Drew Oliver.

"Thanks to the hard work of Coach Oliver and the dedicated staff at Hazen HS and the amazing kids, the Highlanders are on a solid foundation," Kilpatrick-White said in a press release. "We are very excited to get to the work of becoming great underway!"

Hazen Assistant Principal/Athletic Director Ed Crow said he is looking forward to working with the energetic Kilpatrick-White.

“Coach Kilpatrick-White is an excellent fit for Hazen. His desire for his team to exhibit excellence both on the field and in the classroom is exactly what we are looking for in a head coach in all of our sports," Crow said, adding that Kilpatrick-White understands and embraces that his role is to be a teacher of both the game itself but more importantly be a teacher of each young man in the program.

"We believe he’ll be an innovator on the field and motivator of our student athletes," Crow said. "His goal for each player to reach his potential on the field, in the classroom, and in life in general connects well with Hazen’s motto of Pride, Unity, and Achievement."
