Blue Valley West’s cross country and track and field programs have a new head coach: Shawnee Mission’s longtime coach Aaron Davidson.

Davidson, who has spent his entire 15-year teaching and coaching career at Shawnee Mission North, will take up the position, as well as physical education position, at BV West starting the beginning of next school year.

Davidson has had several career milestones

He also runs a youth running club

  • The Herd Running Club is a Lenexa-based youth running club meant to “empower kids and build character through running,” according to its website.
  • The running club offers several programs for kids in kindergarten through 6th grade, including 5K training groups for older children.
  • Davidson, who still trains and races competitively in races across the country, runs the club with his wife, Ashlee Davidson.

  • Hudgins, who helped lead the Mill Valley program to six state football titles since 2015, will follow in the footsteps of former coach Adam Pummill, who announced his resignation earlier this school year.
