NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 23, 2021) — Valor College Prep announced Thursday former assistant coach Troy Rexilius has been hired as the new Girls’ basketball coach.
Rexilius is new to the Nashville area and is a certified Art Teacher at Valor Collegiate Prep. Coach Rex has a combined total of 14 seasons of coaching experience. Most recently, he was the Assistant Coach for the girls’ varsity program here at Valor. Prior to moving to Nashville, Coach Rex was a member of the coaching staff for both girls and boys basketball in Rochester, IL where he coached at both the middle school and high school levels. Troy comes from a lineage of high school coaches where his father and grandfather coached multiple high school sports teams which led to a childhood of being on the sidelines at sporting events.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be the head coach at Valor. Last season I got the chance to work with the team, and I know I am getting a great group of young women. I am looking forward to getting in the gym and working with athletes at all levels of the program! Being able to teach and coach in the same building is such a great opportunity for building strong relationships on the court and in the classroom. I am excited and eager to put in the work for the Valor Wildcats!” said Rexilius.
“This is a truly exciting day for our school and athletics department, as we welcome Troy Rexilius as our new head girls’ basketball coach,” said VCA athletics director Cameron Hill. “He has a track record of developing young people and helping them reach their full potential in a fun, character-based atmosphere. He is known as a “players coach” and he prioritizes the overall well-being of everyone in his program, is passionate about empowering his student-athletes, and recognizes that a program is only as good as its people. He is family-oriented and community-minded. We are thrilled that he and his wife Kathleen have joined the Wildcat family.”
