He also likes to get outside to fly fish. Coach Dennison presently teaches Spanish at Twelve Corners Middle School.  He also coaches modified boys volleyball in the Fall.  It is a privilege to coach our wonderful student athletes at Brighton.  Athletics are a great venue to promote character, goal setting, teamwork, healthy habits and  friendly competition.  He especially likes to work with the jumpers on our track program.  There is nothing better than watching an athlete improve each season in their events.  Contact at craig_dennison@bcsd.org
