AIA PRESS CENTER
Dobson High School
4A-5A Coach of the Year
In the last five years Coach Dumas has lead his Girls Basketball team to the State tournament four times and have won two state championships. Tyler has always envisioned a true community concept in building this program and creating a culture based upon hard work, accountability and a sense of selflessness. He has a vision not only for the basketball season but for each of his players. Overcoming defeat, injuries and challenges off the court, the team remained focused on the bigger picture – the D I state title.
A vision setter, trusted leader, problem solver and good communicator, Tyler Dumas possesses strong leadership skills. His coaching has promoted a level of pride that is evident school-wide through a team of girls that because of Coach Dumas now have futures that would otherwise be impossible. Through accomplishments both on and off the court Tyler has demonstrated that he is indeed one of the best coaches one will ever encounter in a school or even in life.
