Growing up in a household with educators and coaches, Scott Reule had a good idea from an early age that he would one day follow in his parents footsteps.

Reule did exactly that, first getting into coaching as a basketball coach at Wilmington College before coming to Benjamin Logan as the athletic and activities director, a position he has filled for the last 13 years.

He has developed a reputation for being a strong advocate for his athletes and coaches as well as for displaying a tireless work ethic in a job that rarely slows down.

For his efforts, Reule has been recognized as athletic director of the year by the Southwest Ohio Athletic Directors Association. He was one of four ADs from southwest Ohio to receive the honor this year. He was nominated for the award by Ben Logan high school principal Mark Butler and Bellefontaine athletic director Matt Comstock.

Honestly, this is an honor that a lot of athletic directors deserve, said Reule. I dont feel like I should be recognized for simply doing what I am supposed to do. But I am grateful to Mark and Matt for nominating me for this award. Its really a reflection of the great people we have at our school and in this community.

Reule was raised in northern Kentucky. He enjoyed playing sports while growing up and that enjoyment turned into a profession.

I have been around education and athletics my entire life, said Reule. Both of my parents were educators and coaches. My dad was an athletic director and principal. From watching them, I knew that I wanted to get into coaching and teaching.

He had little knowledge of the Ben Logan district and surrounding area when he took the athletic directors position there. Having served the school for over a decade now and also being involved in the experiences of his wife Allison, who is a teacher and head volleyball coach at Ben Logan, Reule has developed a deep connection to the Raider community.

I really didnt know much about Ben Logan or Logan County before I came here, he said. My wife and I have grown with the community and we feel like we are a big part of it. Working here has created a strong bond to Ben Logan and a feeling of pride and respect for the entire community.

Being an athletic director comes with a lot of headaches, but Reule said those are outweighed by the relationships he has developed with his staff and the student-athletes at Ben Logan.

What happens from 8 to 3 during a school day is obviously very important to a students development, but I believe that what they do after school through clubs, athletics and school activities have as big of an influence on their character and their school memories.

The most rewarding part for me is seeing kids have success and just to see them have growth as young people.

In addition to his service to Ben Logan as an AD, Reule was the schools head boys basketball coach for one season a few years ago and he is now an assistant coach in the program. He said his coaching background has prepared him well in his relationships with the districts coaches.

There is no doubt that coaching has helped me understand what our coaches go through and what they deal with, said Reule. That has helped me know what I can do to help make their jobs a little easier.
