Valor Christian named Brian Bonn its next baseball coach on Thursday.

Bonn is very familiar with the program, having been an assistant with the team since its start nine seasons ago. He has 13 years of total coaching experience.

He'll inherit a squad that is fresh off of winning a Class 4A state championship, and is 127-61 in its history.

"Over the past nine years, I have had the opportunity to assist in starting and growing the Valor Baseball program," Bonn said in a statement. "I have a deep desire to continue to create an exceptional program and lead baseball players to Jesus Christ. My heart is to make sure that every student has an exceptional experience and they would feel loved by the players and coaches around them.

"Since the beginning, I have fallen in love with the culture of Valor Baseball and I want to continue to make it even better for the years to come.  I am excited to step into this new role and look forward to continuing the traditions that make Valor Baseball such a special program."

Bonn takes over for Keith Wahl, who started the program when the school opened. Wahl left to take a job as an athletic director in Alabama this summer.

Said Valor Christian athletic director Jamie Heiner: "It brings me great joy to announce Coach Bonn as the next leader of the Valor Baseball program."
