#8:  Brian Lilly -- great nordic skiier, amazing coach!

Fairport alumn, Brian Lilly (class of '98), STILL holds the record for the mile at FHS!  After an impressive career competing in nordic skiing at some of the highest levels, including the Olympic Training Center, two Olympic Trials, the Junior World Championships, and the US Military Biathlon, he retired in 2003 and expanded his career to coaching.  

Hear all about his experiences including:

  • A sweaty hat that has been handed down through FHS track athletes for over 20 years -- and how one mom finally broke down and washed it in the early 2000s
  • How his athletes' successes are some of his proudest moments
  • What it means to be a good coach
  • What it's like being a stay-at-home dad
