CRESTVIEW — The last few weeks for new Crestview boys basketball coach Ken Meisner have been a whirlwind, but with the season opening next week, he’s finally settling into his job.

Meisner, an athletic trainer at Panhandle Orthopedics, brings a wealth of coaching experience from his native Illinois and having coached Amateur Athletic Union basketball here for the past five years.

“I’ve been coaching basketball since 1994-95,” he said. “I coached at local schools in Illinois. I’m also a big advocate for the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) and I’ve been doing AAU down here five years, going on my sixth year.

“I’ve taken kids from all over the panhandle and competed against the bigger Nike sponsored teams and have been successful.”

He said he likes everything about coaching Crestview.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity,” Meisner said. “It’s a great location with great facilities and a lot of great tradition.
