New West Side High School girls’ basketball coach Kelli Hobson is returning to her roots, having played basketball in Dayton some years ago.
Following her time as a Pirate, she played college-level volleyball and basketball at Colorado Northwestern for two years. That’s where she met her husband, Bryon, who played as well and supports her in this new role.
“I could see a need here and I wanted to get my family mostly raised and into school,” Hobson said. She is the mother of two boys and two girls, the youngest is three and the oldest is 12.
“I wanted there to be a girls’ basketball program thriving by the time they (daughters) played. I’d go to games and think they could be really good. We just need to teach them.”
She is getting help from Jeri O’Brien, who led the girls’ volleyball team to state, winning that title. O’Brien is continuing to help out, coaching the junior varsity.
