HERMON – Aaron Wilcox has orchestrated one of the greatest dynasties in Maine high school sports history. Since 2009, Bangor Christian boys soccer has won seven state championships.
After 20 plus years, Wilcox is stepping down. Just a thought two years ago, which has now become a reality.
“Well it started probably a couple years ago when my last child went to Pennsylvania also to go to school,” Wilcox said.
Wilcox has been away from his family for quite some time, his kids all went to school down in Pennsylvania. His granddaughter also lives in the Keystone State, and he’ll soon be joining them.
“Watching my granddaughter, Skyping at Christmas realizing she’s out there and I’m here and why. That’s the thing that really got me going. And just in the last few weeks realizing that it’s time for a change,” Wilcox said.
Bangor Christian Patriot red flows through Wilcox’s veins. While he is joining his family down in Pennsylvania, he’s also leaving one behind.
“These past four year have been a blessing. All that he’s done for the school and me personally just nothing but respect and gratitude for him,” Bangor Christian boys soccer senior Erik Gorczok said.
“You know to see some of those kids even come up through middle school its really difficult to look at some of those kids and say you know it’s time,” Wilcox said
“You know I bleed red white and blue I mean that’s what I am I’m a patriot but at the same time – really really excited to be down with my family,” Wilcox said.
