A letter from Coach Bob Fontana
An incredible amount of work goes into a successful basketball program and it takes effort and sacrifice from a number of people. Those efforts and sacrifices are greatly appreciated by our basketball staff. I personally want to thank my wife, Shari, and children, Madison and Spencer, for all the sacrifices they have made over the years for me to be a Head Basketball Coach. I am forever grateful for their support.
It was a proud moment in February of 2013 when I was named the Head Varsity Boys’ Basketball Coach at Centennial High School I feel honored to lead this program and to represent Centennial High School. There are many people and groups that have helped build the solid foundation of Centennial Basketball. Our administration is very supportive and they are great people to work with. Our athletic director, Nate Lingren and the activities office do a number of things for our student-athletes that are greatly appreciated. Our Jaguar Basketball Committee spends countless volunteer hours helping with our team meals, our fan apparel, our basketball banquet and our fundraisers. Their dedication and commitment to our program is greatly appreciated.
Our ACBC program is going strong with approximately 190 young men and 21 teams in grades 2-8. The program was started in 2013. We have future Jaguars playing on other teams as well. We appreciate the time commitment of all the future Jaguars, their coaches and their parents.
I also want to thank our Booster Club for their continued support. It would be difficult to operate our program without the support of the Booster Club. Their efforts are greatly appreciated.
Then, there is our coaching staff. I feel quite honored to lead an outstanding coaching staff. Varsity assistants Matt Delger and Jeff Kelling. Coach Delger in his 8th season at Centennial and Coach Kelling in his 6th. Both coaches have a great deal of enthusiasm and passion for the game of basketball.
Coach Luke Den Adel and Coach Connor Kasperbauer lead our sophomore team . Coach Den Adel is entering his 5th season on our staff. Coach Kasperbauer is entering his 2nd season on the staff. Both of these coaches (Den Adel 2014 & Kasperbauer 2017) are former players of mine here at Ankeny Centennial. These two coaches are continually working to make our program better by teaching the game of basketball and emphasizing the expectations we have in our program.
Coaches Tyler McDonald and Matt Klingner enter their third year and lead our freshman teams. Our freshman coaches are continually working to help our freshman understand the “Jaguar Way”. I greatly appreciate the time these men spend with our future.
As you can see, there are many different people and groups that have made Centennial basketball what it is today. As a head coach, I not only see those accomplishments, but I also see all the young men who are dedicated to our program. whether they are a varsity, junior varsity, sophomore or freshman player. Their efforts are all appreciated.
As the head coach of the Centennial Men’s Basketball program, it is truly an honor to represent Centennial High School.
Take care and God Bless All,
Head Varsity Boys Basketball Coach
