I grew up on Portland, Oregon and was an All-State athlete in both football and baseball at Franklin High School. I spent my college days playing football at Linfield College while completing my bachelor's degree in Physical Education. After playing my own game, I returned to my roots as a coach at Franklin High School. I had an open door policy and willingness to put in long hours and I've helped many kids reach the next level of athletics. I am also a Certified Trainer and Master Certified in Speed, Agility and Quickness. From 2012 - 2014 I was living in Yuma, Arizona coaching receivers at Arizona Western College and NFL Flag Football in the off-season. I've helped over 35 students attain scholarships to play at the next level beyond high school.
