MIDLAND Holy Cross Catholic High School (HCCHS) announced Tuesday their new boys’ Athletic Coordinator, Hosea Stredic. Stredic has already begun preparations for his new role and was even able to participate in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the school’s new gymnasium.

Stredic comes to HCCHS with 29 years of experience in education, 14 years of experience as an athletic director, and 29 years of coaching a six-man football, basketball, and track and field. He has coached numerous state championships in six-man football, and track and field, a news release said.

In 2019, Stredic was recognized as TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) Coach of the Year, and for the past six years, he has coached in the Texas Private School All-Star Game (six-man football).

Stredic has stated he is looking forward to his new position, and partnering with the families, staff, and coaches of HCCHS, to build upon the foundation that has already been established for this eager, start-up school.

“We are very excited to have Mr. Stredic as a new member of the Crusader family. At Holy Cross, we emphasize the formation of our young scholars in mind, body and spirit. We are confident that Coach Stredic will be a mentor to our young people both on and off the field/court/track.” Bradley Gibson, HCCHS Board of Directors president said.

With five years under its belt, HCCHS has grown its athletic program significantly. As they move into their sixth year of operations, they are grateful to offer an array of options for their students, including football, volleyball, basketball, track, cross country, cheerleading, golf, and baseball.

“Coach Stredic has a history of success including state championships in multiple sports, and at different schools. We cannot wait to see how he grows our athletic programs with the goal of mentoring our students to be followers of Christ, great citizens, and fierce competitors.” Gibson continues, “With the opening of our new gymnasium, rising enrollment, and a commitment to both academics and athletic excellence, great things are ahead for our Crusaders.”
