From 2007-2014, Kurt Brey coached baseball at Hillcrest High School. He spent those years assisting head coach Paul Gaskins. At the time, Coach Brey had a son on the team. AJ Brey was the first baseman and played on the team from 2008-2012.

The Brey family spent countless hours at the field. With dad coaching, brother playing, and a sister as the team manager, the baseball field was a second home.

Coach Brey “retired” his coaching position shortly after AJ graduated from high school. Coach Brey had many years of dance competitions ahead of him. All three girls were set on dancing.

After four years of watching a daughter on the drill team and one year of a daughter on the cheer team, freshman Skyley Brey told her family she wanted to play softball.

Coach Brey was ecstatic. He has always wanted a daughter to play softball.

Growing up, Coach Brey played on many softball teams.  He won many awards. One of his softball teams had the opportunity to play in the olympic festival in 1995. They left the festival with a gold medal.

As a dad of three dancers Coach Brey had tried year after year to get one of his girls to play softball. Little did he know 2018 would be his year.

Shortly after Skyley began open gyms with the softball team Coach Brey was asked to coach.

“I love having him coach!” said Skyley Brey

The Brey family has returned to their second home at the field.
