Two-year Head Girls Soccer Coach Bobby Behrens will not be with Charles Page High School going into the 2017 season. Behrens was recently announced to be the new Men's Soccer Assistant Coach at Oral Roberts University, and will be replaced by former Coweta coach Matthew Miller.
Behrens didn't spend long in the coaching spot at CPHS, but his two short years left big shoes to fill. The 2010 Sand Springs graduate made the All-State team his senior year and played collegiate for John Brown University and Northeastern State University before returning to his Alma Mater as Head Girls coach in 2014. The girls finished the 2016 season with a 9-6 record, six shutouts, and the Edison Green and White Tournament Championship. In addition to Behrens, the Sandites sent four players to the collegiate level, including All-State player Brooklyn Eardley who will go with Behrens to ORU.
Miller was previously the head coach for the Coweta boys team for a year. Specifically, he was the third head coach in three years for Coweta, who can't seem to find a match. Miller previously worked as an assistant coach for the Tulsa Thunder Soccer Club on the Red 95 Team. He worked with the Oklahoma Olympic Youth Development Team from 2000-2004 and served as a Camp Coach for ORU from 2011-2012. Coweta's boys went 7-7 under Miller in the regular season before falling to Memorial in the 5A State Tournament.
