CBC names Streb as new athletic director
By: Warren Mayes
CBC has promoted wrestling coach A.G. “Rocky” Streb to be the new athletic director at CBC.
David Hill resigned last week. He plans to spend more time with his consulting business.
“I am happy to be able to fill a need at a school I’ve come to respect and love,” said the 53-year-old Streb. “The (CBC) AD job is one of the premier athletic administrative positions in the St. Louis area. We are a highly visible institution that other schools look to. I want us to be the example of excellence in high school activities … not just in the box scores but in our professional disposition on the part of athletes, coaches and fans.”
Streb has experience in the position. He served as athletic director at Oakville High School from 2005 to 2007.
Streb earned his doctorate degree in education from the University of Missouri–St. Louis. Three years ago, he retired as an administrator and principal in the Mehlville school district (Oakville High and Buerkle Middle School). He also is currently an assistant professor in the School of Education at Lindenwood University.
Streb is the former president of the Missouri State Wrestling Coaches Association. Streb is a former high school state wrestling champion from Riverview Gardens High School. He wrestled in college at the University of Missouri.
“Dr. Rocky Streb is one of the most successful high school coaches in Missouri and we are excited to have him lead our entire athletic program here at CBC,” said Mike England, CBC’s President. “As a lifelong educator, Rocky will serve as a true role model for our young athletes. Rocky is a proven leader whose commitment to excellence will serve CBC well.”
Streb holds several Missouri education certificates, including a Missouri Superintendent Certificate, a state Advanced Principal Certificate, and a Missouri Lifetime Teaching Certificate.
He is the parent of CBC junior Nick Streb.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to be the Athletic Director at CBC,” Streb said. “I greatly appreciate CBC’s long tradition of excellence and the rich history it has enjoyed in all of its co-curricular activities. “The school’s facilities are second to none, and CBC’s student-athletes are of the highest quality. I expect that we will continue to work to be the best that we can possibly be, and that fans will continue to take pride in CBC athletics.”
Streb said he will continue as head wrestling coach for the Cadets.
