Eric Osner

Coach Eric OsnerEric Osner the second youngest coach in Northark history. The coach has just started his third decade of life at the ripe old age of 30.

In his high school career, the coach played basketball and baseball for four years. He also ran cross country for two years.

Upon completing his high school career, Osner moved on to Allen County Community College in Iola, Kan. He played there one year and then moved on to Evangel University where he played for three seasons.

After finishing his collegiate career, Osner stayed at Evangel as a graduate assistant. After completing five years as a part-time coach at the Springfield, Mo. college, Osner was elevated to full-time assistant and head junior varsity head coach.

To make ends meet during college and his beginning years of coaching, Osner coached Bolivar, Mo. and Clinton's American Legion teams.

The hard work that the coach placed in the summer is something that he will expect from his team.

"We are going to be a hard working and hard-nosed team," said Osner. "We’re going to out work you, and leave it all on the field. We're going to play the game the right way and the wins and losses will take care of themselves."

Osner majored in physical education and minored in personal training while at Evangel. He received his master's in education leadership.
