Head Cowgirl Coach Jamie Fisher announced on Thursday morning the addition of new assistant Cowgirl Basketball Coach Porsche Young. Porsche comes to Warner from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma where she served as assistant basketball coach for her alma mater Putnam City High School. Young has been an assistant at PCO for the last six season, and has turned into one of the bright young coaches in the Oklahoma City area.
Young was a four year letter winner for PCO in high and garnished All-City and All State honors her senior season. Young furthered her basketball playing career at Howard College in Big Spring, Texas where current Cowgirl Head Coach Jamie Fisher was the assistant coach. Porsche was a two year starter at Howard on a team that won over 45 games in two years and reached a top 10 ranking and qualified for the Region V Tournament.
"When going through the interview process Porsche was the logical candidate in a pool of 20 applicants for me to pick," said Head Coach Jamie Fisher. "Porsche is a former player, who is loyal, has a high basketball IQ, energetic, and most importantly very relatiable for the players," "This was a no brainer for me on this decision." said Fisher
Young is excited to start this new adventure in her coaching life, and is very eager to hit the ground running when she starts on July 1st.
"I chose coaching to help the young ladies develop into the best basketball players their heart desires, as well as building character off the court, and my ultimate goal is to build up players in order for them to overcome every obstacle that comes their way on and off the court," said Porsche Young. "Coaching is my passion and changing lives is my daily goal." said Young.
Coach Young will start on July 1st as the Cowgirl coaching staff will hit the ground running to prepare for this upcoming season.
