Josh Cassidy, Harrison High School Football Asst. Head Coach
Josh Cassidy lived at The Home during his formative years. It was a great place for a kid who did not have structure. Today, Josh embraces that structure learned from his childhood and applies it to all aspects of his life. “As a coach and as a teacher, if you’re not structured and in order, your students and players aren’t going to be successful. For me, coaching is a tool. Early on in my career, it was about winning. Of course, winning is important but it has become secondary to utilizing the game to develop relationships with the players, the coaches, the teachers, the administrators, the parents, and the community.” Josh personally believes in whole person development and tries to develop his players physically, spiritually, socially, and intellectually and tells them that the two things you can control are your attitude and effort. Along with his coaching responsibilities at Harrison High School in Kennesaw, GA, Josh teaches strength training in the physical education department. He and his wife Alissa have been married for 8 years and really enjoy putting in the work it takes to make a successful marriage. They are parents to three boys (ages 4, 2, and 2 weeks old).
