“The Bold Gold will always have a special place in my heart.”
For the past six years, Coach Keith Bloskas has made Post his home.
“This community here in Post has blessed our family in many ways,” Bloskas said. “This place is special and is home to a lot of great individuals.”
From coaching to teaching, it’s safe to say Bloskas’ resume at Post ISD is a long one. Elementary Physical Education, World History, Special Teams Coordinator, Defensive Backs and Quarterbacks Coach, Head Girls Varsity Basketball Coach and Head Girls Varsity Coach are all on the list of titles he’s held.
“I stayed busy,” Bloskas said.
However, starting the 2020-21 school year, Bloskas will be moving to Abernathy to further his career as the Offensive Coordinator, Assistant Girls Varsity Basketball Coach and Head Girls Varsity Coach for the Antelopes.
“My family and I are excited to be moving to Abernathy,” Bloskas said. “I’m excited for this opportunity to join an extremely successful program and school district.”
Although enthusiastic, Bloskas says there are many things he will miss about his time at Post ISD, including all the students he’s had the opportunity to teach and coach.
“I will miss first and foremost the kids,” he said. “All of my players, past and present, are the reason that I love coaching. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing students years later, and seeing how they have gotten married, had kids of their own and started a career.”
Bloskas also says that he will miss the staff, especially Beau Riker and Michael Pittman, saying he’s built connections that will last a lifetime.
“In coaching, you are around the players and your coaching staff more than your own family sometimes,” he said. “So, you build strong relationships and become close to a lot of people. The great thing about this profession is that a lot of these relationships that I have built here in Post will go on with me forever.”
Additionally, Bloskas thanks the community for welcoming him and allowing him to become part of the family.
“There are a lot of people who have made my time in Post so memorable,” Bloskas said. “The way the community embraces the school and each and every program is unbelievable. The way everyone embraced myself and my family will forever be appreciated. From the moment we moved to town, we have been embraced as family.”
Although Bloskas has been a part of many Bold Gold victories, including the advancement to the 2A Division I State Championship game, it’s the little things Bloskas says he will remember the most.
“It’s easy to remember the team victories and accomplishments that I was fortunate to be a part of in football, girls’ basketball and girls’ track,” Bloskas said. “But I think it’s the little things that I will remember the most, such as the locker room, bus rides and team meals. Little things like that is what makes what I do so enjoyable.”
As Bloskas says goodbye, there is one thing he hopes he has left behind with those that he has taught – the knowledge that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to.
“The beauty of athletics is that it teaches life lessons,” he said. “I hope that by learning how to be a team player, learning how to compete and learning how to win and lose with dignity, that the young people I have taught and coached have become equipped with what it takes to be successful in life. I hope that the young men and women that I have had the chance to coach have learned as much from me as I have from them.”
Bloskas immensely thanks the Bold Gold family for everything they’ve done and continue to do.
“The relationships I have gained will go on with me for a lifetime,” Bloskas said. “The Bold Gold will always hold a special place in my heart.”
