"I am very proud of where our program is today, as well as where it is headed," said Gary Leake, Highland's Athletic Director. "I view the success of our Upper School athletic program as a partnership between student athletes, coaches, teachers, parents, and school personnel. At Highland, we are not a "win at all cost" school, but have developed a method that emphasizes the quality of the experience over the quantity of wins and losses."
"I believe that, through participation, our student athletes have the opportunity to gain life lessons in such areas as self discipline, work ethic, character, time management, commitment and personal training habits."

Gary Leake Director of Athletics - Former NBA player energizes Highland, 11 Feb 2005 [cached]
"The school support has been the best we've ever had," said athletic director Gary Leake, who has worked at Highland for all nine of its years.
Leake often gets the same question from parents concerning Jennings: Why would a former NBA player want to coach here?
Leake coached Jennings in AAU basketball 21 years ago.
Leake needed a coach, and Jennings wanted a fresh start close to his hometown of Culpeper.
"It was a no-brainer to bring him in," Leake said."It's been great for the kids.He brings a wealth of experience, and he's a great person."
Leake said Jennings is only required to work with grades 4-12, but can be seen showing the younger kids how to dribble and shoot.

"He is a clear-cut candidate for what we were looking for," said Gary Leake, Highland's athletic director.
Leake praised Edwards' efforts."He tried hard, but we did not have the funding to retain him.Our preference is to have coaches that are full-time employees.Waymond did a great job putting Highland girls basketball on the map."
As for replacing Allen, Leake is zeroing in on a candidate capable of continuing Allen's Highland legacy.

Highland's Morgan Atkins, 16, receives assistance from Gary Leake with the Web site.
Highland School Athletic Director Gary Leake officially began, an online college athletic scholarship assistance business, about a year ago.
"I'm looking for the athlete who may be all-district, but not necessarily the super athlete.Sometimes the No. 2 running back isn't that far behind (in talent) the No. 1 running back," Mr. Leake says."The great athletes probably don't need our site.College coaches already know who they are."
After an initial $25,000 investment, Mr. Leake says he'll spend at least as much marketing CBA to a national audience.
"April 15 is the day we go national," the 41-year-old says."I've hired a local marketing firm, and we plan advertisements in USA Today sometime late this month or in May."
Mr. Leake gets about as pumped as an automobile salesman when describing the benefits of his relatively new service.
"Our cost ($249) to join is low, compared to other recruiting services, but the big difference is that our site is always controlled by the athlete and parents.
"Right now, maybe half of the 50 student-athletes on our site are from Highland and they have complimentary memberships," Mr. Leake adds.
