Coach Arledge is one of the best football coaches this valley has ever seen. In my opinion, he is the best. He is tough when he needs to be and will pull his kids aside and speak to them one-on-one when he notices a chance for an important lesson. He has a knack for bringing out the best in his kids and grooming them to be respectable young men, which is what high school ball is all about. He has changed the lives of many and this will not be forgotten by the ones he has coached/taught over the years.

Palisade was fortunate to have him coach there for 8 years. They made a mistake in ‘making a change’ and letting Coach Arledge go. I hope this does not deter Coach A from coaching again. This is another hurdle in life that I am sure he will take in stride.
