Greetings from the P.E. Department at Park Crossing High School. My name is Wade Atchley and I will be serving your young men and women as one of their Physical Education instructors. Besides the day to day duties of educating our students as to the benefits of Life Sports in their daily lives, I will enter my second season as Head Baseball Coach for the Thunderbird baseball team.

I had the privilege of playing football, basketball, and baseball in high school and went on to play baseball on scholarships at both the Junior College and NAIA levels. After finishing college, I spent two seasons in the instructional leagues and then began my coaching career.  I am married to Darlene Atchley and have two sons, Seth and Kolton .
