WLOS - Coming off one the program’s best seasons, Reynolds High baseball coach Bryan Craig decided to go out on top.

After 16 years on the job, Craig has resigned to spend more time with his family. He said he will remain at the school and continue to be the defensive coordinator for the football team.

Craig was 250-156-1 in his 16 seasons, and this year’s team was one of his best.

The Rockets (23-5) reached the 3A Western Regional championship series this season, falling to Crest in three games.

“When you coach two sports at a school like Reynolds, it’s very time consuming,” said Craig, who has been at the school 22 years.

“I have a daughter who is a freshman here who plays softball, and I just decided that for the next three years to do everything I could to be with my family.

“I just want to make that commitment to my daughter and my wife, and I don’t want to look back in three years and have any regrets.”

Craig won five conference championships with the Rockets, including the Western Mountain Athletic Conference title this season with a 15-1 record.

“What a great way to go out,” he said. “I’ve been a Rocket a long time and will always be a Rocket. It’s a great place to be and to coach, and I expect we will continue to have great success with this program.

“This year just kept getting better and better, and I had a great bunch of kids.”
