BEND, OR -- Mountain View High School’s Athletic Director has been selected as Oregon’s Athletic Director of the Year. Dave Hood has worked for Bend-La Pine Schools for 38 years and has served as Mountain View’s AD for the past 16 years.


In a statement, Hood says he’s proud and humbled by the honor. "My goal has been to create a culture of care and character and to create opportunities and serve the kids and the coaches." He adds, "Being an AD goes beyond Xs and Os, and goes to what our purpose is. Yes, we want to win, but why are we doing what we are doing?" Hood says, "My favorite part is serving students, families and coaches. Whenever I make a decision I always look to see how it affects kids and take that to heart."


The Oregon Athletic Directors Association (OADA) chooses the AD of the Year for making significant contributions to their school, community, league and the OADA organization. Hood has already received the lifetime service award from the association.
