    Karl King and his wife, Christy, are a wonderful couple and have two outstanding sons. Oklahoma education suffered a great loss when they came to Florida. They are someone you want to have your children spend time with. Oklahoma is so proud of them!

    Our family had the privilege of Coach King coaching all 3 of our boys at Edmond North. He’s a wonderful example of what a leader should look like. He’s kept up with all my boys, and they all think so highly of him. There’s no one more deserving of this honor! Congratulations to Coach King!
