Anyone know why Jason Eldredge left Freedom High School? I've heard numerous stories and want to hear from someone who knows the real scoop. I heard he was forced to resign and we all know what that means. Someone spill the details!

He is now a terrible basketball coach/Spanish teacher. All he does is have parties in his class and everyone knows he can't speak Spanish. He has destroyed the Boys Basketball team - it's the worst team at our school. No one even goes to their games. And he's loud and obnoxious. Thinks he is cool but he is the joke of our entire school.

He was suspended for a game his last year at freedom for saying something inappropriate to a player. I know the principal at the time gave him the option of stepping down or being fired. They're wasn't a lot of learning going on in his classes...

Eldredge told a girl to win she needed to be the biggest bitch on the court. Loudon has a no tolerance cursing policy so that was it.

So when people talk about him saying something inappropriate stop using your imagination it was just a bad phrase to use considering the school policy.

I'm sure plenty of football coaches have told their kids to be assholes, dicks, or other things while in the heat of battle. And nobody is losing a football job over it.

Winning makes you a target so for whatever reason he was zeroed in on.

So Eldredge sucked at Westfield . . goes to Loudoun County and gets forced into resignation . . but then is hired at West Springfield HS? No wonder that school has turned into such a joke. I am baffled by some of the people who are hired at WSHS. Eldredge is just another in a long line of awful teachers/coaches who should not be permitted to work around children. At least they are getting rid of Biddison. Maybe Eldredge will be next on the chopping block!

The Spanish department is a wreck at WSHS. I would recommend taking a different language because sooner or later you will get one of the crummy teachers (there is more than just one). There is at least one who is good---the problem is your odds of getting one of these non teachers.

The varsity football team at Freedom has never been good, or even average. The wrestling program is apparently decent.

He won 2 state championships at Loudon, but that was Girls Basketball, not boys. Huge difference in most aspects of coaching basketball between girls and boys. They need to get some fresh blood in there and overhaul the boys program. DOesn't make sense that other schools in the area have the same type of kids and talent and do much better. Look at Lake Braddock and Robinson. Both much better than West Springfield boys basketball yet most of those kids grow up playing together and against each other.

Don't know what the criteria is for the AD over there to get a decent boys basketball coach. I think he's more of a soccer guy so maybe he just has no clue about basketball?

I don't know why it should surprise you that better athletes would end up at LB and Robinson. They are bigger schools with many more titles. All WS is known for now is girls BB and sextapes.

NOBODY would be that stupid to hire him as a football coach. They need someone to rebuild that program and earn the respect/trust of the players who have been destroyed by Biddison. Eldredge has ruined basketball and would do the same to football. Making him a football coach would be a colossal mistake. Never gonna happen.

People don't know how hard Eldredge works. The basketball team works out year round and has brought the fanbase back to the boys games. They don't have the same amount of talent in the population that Lake Braddock and Robinson do because they are a smaller school. But he has reenergized the basketball program and it will show in the 13-14 season.

The fact is that his work will show next year when the boys bball team goes off on a run. The fan base at all of the wshs boy's games is always packed and this will continue into next year..

I went to a WS game this past year and you'd have thought it was a scrimmage or freshman game since the gym was practically empty. There were more fans from the visiting side than the WS side. I admit that's only 1 game but it certainly didn't look like a lot of students were there. Maybe he will get it going next year.

I hope everyone gives him a chance and waits at least a year or two before getting too judgemental.
While he was 12-38 as a defensive co-ordinator at Freedom, please remember they played way bigger schools and would have maybe won less with worse coaches.
So pretty much the same situation as West Springfield basketball.
There is no quick fix. The kids will follow him to the ends of the Earth and that's all that matters in the end.

Don't know which game you were at, but it was not a WSHS boys basketball game. Attendance is not good in an already very small gym.

Like someone earlier said, look at the facts. His record as follows:
2010-2011 3 wins, 18 losses
2011-2012 7 wins, 16 losses
2012-2013 4 wins, 19 losses

He is going backwards. Most losses in all three years this past season. They were awful. Don't know which Friday night games you are talking about being 'a-rockin' but most looked like fans at a freshman or jv game. And if you look at their rosters from top to bottom, they got nothing.

Best JV record in years at 7-9 with 6 juniors playing for them??? Are you kidding me? If you got 6 juniors playing for your jv team, they shouldn't lose.

The only good thing they got going is their post player, Cronin who is decent, and some okay shooters in a couple of their guards. HS ball is very hard to be successful living and (usually) dying by the Three point shot.

If this guy takes over Football next, they might as well cancel two of the school's largest sports programs because the end product will look worse than a dirty diaper mixed with burnt Indian food. You get what I'm saying.

I coached with Eldredge when he was at Westfield...some real info:

1. He knows very little about football and had little impact on our football program when he was here.

2. He is not qualified to be a varsity head football coach and WS would be making a big mistake if they hired him to try to rebuild their football program. I can't imagine that there are not other better candidates who have applied.

3. At Freedom he may have coached football 1 or 2 years for Coach McIntyre...I think DBs. If he was a Def coordinator there, at most it was for 1 year. If anyone really cares to find out they can call or email Coach McIntyre - he is currently coaching at Loudoun Valley High School.

4. He is a knowledgeable basketball coach.

5. He works hard as a basketball coach.

6. He won 2 AA VA state titles in girls basketball at Freedom primarily because he had 3 D-1 players land at Freedom at the same time. They also had a few good supporting players which was more than enough to win in basketball. I watched maybe five of their games when Eldredge coached - some at VCU in the state semis/finals and when they played in the Bulldog Bash at Westfield. They were exciting to watch due to their individual talent and Eldredge always put on a "show" himself - trying to fire up the crowd, get after officials, etc.

7. He was a History/Social Studies teacher at Freedom.

8. The Freedom principal, was a marginal supporter of school sports. She did not care for how Eldredge performed in the classroom or during games as a coach. To her credit, she did not give him a "pass" because his teams were winning and give him the opportunity to resign. He took it.

9. There were rumors that he was too friendly with some of the girls but nothing was ever substantiated and if there was any merit to it I am sure the Freedom principal would have either fired him outright (not giving the step down option) and/or would have shared info with WS to prevent his hiring there. BTW, most people would be surprised at how many male HS coaches that there are rumors like this about out there...most are just that.

10. He got his job at WS with some help from his father-in-law, but 2 VA state championships in girls basketball is a legit resume item regardless if you are applying for a girls or boys basketball head position.

11. WS boys basketball results have continued at the same level as before Eldredge took over 3 years ago. Its hard to say that anyone else would have gotten better results during this period.

12. If you care about the WS football program, you probably want to say your piece soon to the administration if he is seriously being considered for the HC position - I know the interviews are scheduled for this Wednesday, March 6th.

Eldredge has done a good job with what he's had. He knocked off South County this season -- the same team that finished as the runner up in the Patriot District tournament. As the buzzer sounded, students rushed the floor. Looked like UVa-Duke the other night. Sheer joy. Ectasy. People hugging one another. Swirling around. Incredible sight.

Yeah, the crowds on Tuesday nights stunk. But unfortunately, most of the games this season were during the week. On the few Friday nights at home, the gym was almost packed. And the team responded by coming within a whisker of almost knocking off T.C. and Lake Braddock.

Things are looking up. The freshmen and JV teams both won more games this season than any frosh/JV squads in a long time. The JV squad beat T.C. Williams at T.C. No small feat. Sure, they didn't go undefeated or even post winning records. But they are laying the foundation for quality varsity teams in the years ahead.

Why did West Sringfield's baseball team win the state championship two years ago. And why did the Lady Spartans advance to the state tournament in the not-to-distant past? Well, it certainly didn't hurt that both teams had a player or two who went on to play Division I in college. Great players make great coaches. The basketball team should be pretty good next season. It'll be an exciting year.

BTW, I have no real interest in the WS football (or basketball) program, I just have worked with Jason in the past and pay attention to what is going on in the NR.

I doubt the County would ask for my opinion on a HC hiring, but if they did I would give it to them. Like you, I am just posting my thoughts on a public forum because I think I have some real information that might correct or clarify some things that others posted about Jason.

I am sure he has developed since I worked with him, although he hasn't coached football for a number of years. For what it is worth, I think he should be allowed to continue coaching the BBall team for a couple more years to see if his methods plus some of the younger kids in the freshmen and jv programs can combine into a successful program. I just don't think he is qualified to be the varsity football HC (at any NR school).

If the admin likes him and/or his coaching style then they should encourage him to be an assistant coach in the football program, possibly working with the freshmen team. In that role he can help the football program and identify potential athletes/players to help with the basketball program (and vice versa, I guess).

Enough said. That is real bad. Coaches should get 3 years and then be evaluated. He has had his 3 years.

JV records are meaningless, so don't know why we're talking about a competitive jv team. Smaller schools usually send talent up quicker and their jv teams are supposed to be average at best. Bigger schools like Westfield, Robinson, Chantilly dominate jv because they have far more depth. JV and fresh are all about developing players not winning, in fact their records are meaningless, who the hell cares?

West Springfield will be better next year, but hard not to be after a 4 win season. It doesn't change the fact that this guy is crazy and belittles his players any chance he gets. Sure he is a hard worker, but most programs do year round conditioning and offseason leagues.

Eldrege is a loser.

I have no idea why or how he teaches spanish at WS, he is a terrible teacher that only has approval from students because he boats one of the "joke" classes where u can go in his room and chill and not do shit.

Pretty much the only reason students don't hate him is because he has sacrificed his academic subjectivity in order to be "popular" among them, and secure his positon at WSHS.

He has a knack of rubbing people the wrong way. His behavior at Freedom ultimately led to his dismissal there. Upon arriving at WS, he angered many with the choosing of his basketball team and calling out the student body for "not having enough spirt" (even though WS has one of the worst bball teams in NOVA).

I'm not saying that WSHS basketball is going to be fixed anytime soon, but Eldrege is doing a lot more harm than help to this school. He is a joke to put it lightly. If you have ever seen him coach or just talked to him, you would probably think he is a deranged lunatic who needs a tranquilizer shot.

Hiring him as the football coach is yet another dumb decision by the WS athletic office. Although he does have experience playing collegiately, he simply is not an accomplished, knowledgable coach who can build and sustain a winning program.

Muir and the rest of the idiots at my alma mater have taken full gulps of the Eldrege Kool-Aid. I cannot remember anybody coaching 2 major sports at a 2500 student high school in FAirfax County...because it isn't supposed to happen.

Dedicating all his time to either program would still leave both programs in shambles, but the fact that he will try to do both will be to the detriment of everybody involved in the teams.

I honestly feel bad for the kids who will play underneath this guy because he is an idiot and has no idea what he is doing. Getting rid of Biddison was the right call, but hiring this retard is taking 10 steps backward.

Wardinski's been gone for two years. Greenfelder and Muir hired Eldredge to be the head football coach. Wonder how embarrassed they are to sit at every football game while WS gets crushed by almost every other school in the county? Nice hire, boys.

Greenfelder had nothing to do with the hire, principals rarely do, plus he knows nothing about football which isn't a bad thing.

Obviously you all do not know much about high school sports. Winning and losing is not that important. It is about the life lessons learned through them. A great coach will make you a better person off the field or court and thats exactly what Eldredge did. He teaches you how to be a hard worker, how to be a dedicated teammate, and how to be a leader. He did what he could with the talent he had and this is coming from a former player. We were not a very talented group and he led us to one of WS most competitive seasons in the past 5 years (The 2011-12 Season). I have the utmost respect for Eldredge. He is a great man and coach

I knew him when he worked for Arlington County Government. He was a DOG. I guess he hasn't changed much.

West Springfield just hired a new boys basketball coach. Eldredge decided to stick with football; couldn't do both sports.Anyone ever hear of Durmia Marshall, who's been at Woodson as an assistant coach for a while?

Honestly, it's a shame Eldrege decided to stick with football. He lead the team to a 3-7 season. Won't do much better next year. He cares a lot more about having the school like him than being successful. If it were up to me, West Springfield would have ran him out of time after his first year.

I know a girl who went to ask him a question and he slapped her on her inner bare thigh (she was apparently wearing shorts, kind of makes it even worse). I had him as a teacher for Spanish 2 and actually lost Spanish speaking skills. He taught some days, but he usually just talked about basketball or life in general. He also let people in our class cheat freely. Passionate about basketball, but an asshole overall.

This is the coach who served as an acting head coach a couple years ago, got into an argument with the team's best player, benched him, and cost Woodson their season isn't it? Stubborn and I don't think a lot of guys from that team forgot, especially the seniors.

I'm sure he's been long around enough though to bring something to the table. It's not hard to be an upgrade though.

He is an incompetent buffoon who should have been fired years ago. Why does he still have a job at WSHS? He is a terrible teacher and a loser coach. He is a joke in the school. The kids, parents, and faculty know it.
