Edmond Santa Fe High School has welcomed 12 new teachers this year to become a part of the Wolf Pack. One of the 12 is Lance Tignor who transferred from Norman North High School to Edmond Santa Fe High School. Tignor teaches Pre-AP Oklahoma History and is a dedicated offensive line coach for Santa Fe’s football team.

The year began with a good start on football considering the wolves have won several times. However, Tignor mentions it is a little early to make predictions.

“It’s early in the year, but I am liking Santa Fe’s football and teaching program,” Tignor said.

Santa Fe is well known for the football team’s accomplishments. The team has achieved several wins which inspired Tignor to come coach and be a part of something successful.

“I came to Santa Fe for an opportunity to win championships,” Tignor said. “My favorite part of Santa Fe is the Friday Night Lights at the wolves stadium.”

Kyle White is the head football coach and is proud to have Tignor in the school but most importantly as a coach. White expresses satisfaction to see him being a productive coach and teacher.

“Coach Tignor is the best offensive line coach in the state of Oklahoma and we are very blessed and fortunate to have him,” White said. “He is great on the football program but he also is a great teacher and relates very well with the kids.”

Football is one of the many motivations for Tignor moving up to the Edmond School District. With twelve new teachers comes a new Oklahoma history teacher as well as a dedicated offensive line coach.
