(3-8-21) Lakeshore High School is pleased to announce the addition of Danny Thompson as the new Head Coach of the Lancer Football program.
Coach Thompson is a native of Middleville, MI and a 2005 graduate of Thornapple Kellogg High School. After graduation, he attended Olivet College and played football. He began his coaching career during college after a back injury concluded his playing career. In 2013 he began coaching at St. Cloud High School in Florida. After coaching defensive line and offensive line, he transitioned to offensive coordinator. In 2018, Thompson moved back to Middleville where he served as offensive coordinator until accepting the Lakeshore Head Coaching Position.
Thoughts from the new coach and his AD –
“I am truly excited to bring my knowledge of football to Stevensville and even more excited to build long lasting relationships with the student athletes and the community members. The traditions and expectations of Lancer Football will not change, but grow, as I bring my enthusiasm, work ethic and diverse coaching philosophy to this community. My promise to the Lakeshore community is I will always lead as a role model, parental figure, mentor, and a teacher. My commitment to our students and athletes will be unmatched, as we prepare them for their future endeavors.”
“I am proud to be the next Head Coach of Lakeshore High School. My wife Sarah and I feel very welcomed by the family-like atmosphere and close knit community. We are excited to call Stevensville our home and to raise our young son Lincoln in this wonderful school district. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to lead a high school football program and I want to thank Lakeshore for this opportunity.”
Lakeshore Athletic Director, Greg Younger, had this to say about Coach Thompson.
“We are really excited to have Danny, Sarah and Lincoln join our Lancer Family. He came to us highly recommended and as we tried to identify someone who could take over the leadership of our program, he fit our needs perfectly. His experience on the offensive side of the ball and knowledge there really will play to the strengths of the athletes that we have coming up in our program and it will be exciting to watch him implement his schemes and establish himself in our community. Not only is he a great coach but he will be a great addition to our History department at LHS and we look forward to all he has to offer our students at LHS”.
