The Wellman-Union ISD School Board hired a new head football coach in their recent board meeting. This will the fourth head football coach in four seasons.

The new head football coach is named Brian Sepkowitz and is coming from New Home with his current position as the defensive coordinator. Coach Sepkowitz has been at New Home for three years with two of those years helping coach six-man football. This past season he was still the defensive coordinator even though New Home elected to go 11-man after the last UIL Realignment.

Prior to his New Home coaching career, Coach Sep was the head football coach of the six-man football team at Kingdom Prep in Lubbock. He earned a bachelors at LCU graduating in 2010 then headed up to Canyon to be a Grad Assistant with the West Texas A&M Buffaloes Football team where he helped coach the freshman, defensive line and special teams.

When asked about his style of offense, Coach Sep talked about that it depends really on the type of athletes he has. After seeing some pictures and looking at video the past season, he felt that there is some good size with speed.

He said this about the offense, “I like multiple, because I know I like the option to shorten the game and run the clock out in certain scenarios, but to also speed it up, get some tempo going, spread it out a little bit.”

On the defense side of things, Coach Sep wants to see the players flying around having fun and be aggressive. He said, “On that side of the ball let them fly around, and don’t give them too much to think about.”

Coach Sep’s other responsibilities at Wellman-Union will include Head Track Coach and will be teaching Jr. High Social Studies.

In Coach Sep’s personal life he is a graduate from Ruidoso High School in Ruidoso NM in 2007. Coach Sep has a family that will be joining him at WU, his wife is named Chelsi, his three-year-old son Wake, and eight-week-old daughter Cypress. Coach Sep would like to thank Wellman-Union ISD for this opportunity, and he believes that this is God opening a door for his family and him.
