Rathke reflects on Ken Peek; talks about Lone Jack job

Tyler Rathke created quite a legacy in his tenure at William Chrisman High School in Independence.

In eight years at the helm, he helped turn the Bears and Lady Bears from what was a rebuilding project to a program that routinely had multiple athlete score at the state meet.

He went south to Rogers Heritage High School in Rogers, Ark., to coach that program. However, his time in Arkansas will be a one-year venture. Lone Jack announced they have hired Rathke to be the next activities director.

Rathke joined us to talk about the new job, how things are going with his current program and he dived into bringing his team to the Ken Peek Invitational on April 12. He built a strong relationship with the former Liberty North coach and talked about the late coach's impact on his coaching career and what it felt like when he heard the news Peek died from cancer earlier this year.
