Longtime Glide baseball coach, administrator retires
GLIDE, Ore. -- Glide High School's longtime baseball coach is starting a new chapter in life.
Al Skinner has retired as the school's Athletic Director, Dean of Students, and Head Baseball Coach after 25 years.
He began his coaching career at Glide in the fall of 1991.
He says his break from coaching could be temporary.
"Never say never," Skinner says. "At this point in time I'm going to step away from it, but in the future, who knows. My wife and I have plans; we're going to go to Europe for a couple years and teach so when I get back, who knows what will happen."
Skinner says the highlight of his career was working with all the kids and families and, of course, winning two state championships.
