Ken Felix - Head Coach

Ken began his coaching career in 1998 as an assistant when his son took up the sport at age 8 at the Mite level. Over the next 10 years, he held various coaching positions in the youth organization as his son progressed through the age groups. He joined the William & Mary team as an assistant under then-head coach Phil Morris at the start of the 2006-07 season. When Phil stated his intentions to retire at the end of the season, the team asked Ken to stay on as head coach. After a few lean years, the team saw an influx of talented players who Ken coached to the league championship in 2011. In 2012 he received the BRHC’s 'Coach of the Year' award. Coach Felix is now in his tenth season with the Tribe.     Email
