Since he has been in office Baylor said, he’s learning how everything works.

“It’s like starting anywhere new,” he said.

When asked what he’s liked so far about the position? Baylorsaid, “I am excited about the relationships with the athletic directors, coaches, and principals of the schools so we can come together as one unit.”
