As the new Head Varsity Football Coach at San Tan Foothills High School I bring 41 years of coaching experience to the school. I am a member of the Mesa School’s Hall of Fame and I’ve been part of 4 state championship football coaching staffs. I served as the head football coach at Florence High School for four years, earning three trips to the state semi-finals during that time. I have a proven track record of winning on the field while developing connections with students and families off the field.

As the Head Football Coach at South Mountain High School, my teams reached the Semi-State Finals two years in a row and I was selected as 5A Coach of the Year by the Arizona Football Coaches Association, the Phoenix Metro Football Coach of the Year, and Channel 12 Friday Night Fever’s Big School Coach of the Year. In 2007 I was also recognized nationally as Coach of the Year in Arizona by the National Football League and the Arizona Cardinals.

My priority in the football program would be in developing an emotional infrastructure that emphasizes a culture of accountability rather than relying on a student athlete’s natural ability. I want our kids to be competitive in the classroom, the field of play and their future with faith, family and careers. We want them to expect challenges and manage human vulnerability and the emotional inconveniences that they will experience as life-long learners in a rapidly changing global environment.
