A positive comment about another Ohio Valley football coach/program: "The Ohio Valley is filled with talented teams, and more importantly, talented coaches. Everyone that plays an Ohio Valley team knows you better get your kids prepared for a physical and well coached fight. Once again this year, we will have to face two Ohio Valley teams in Edison Local and Claymont. Both programs have tough nosed kids that have a passion for this game. I hope we're ready for the fight."

Quote about the upcoming season: "We lost a lost of talent and a lot of leadership when we graduated 19 seniors last year. This years record will be determined by how hard our young men work in the off-season, and if they will step up to those leadership roles. We have a ton of young talent, and thus far our young men are punching the clock and going to work every day. I'm excited to see what these young men can do!"

What person was your inspiration to become a coach: My father, he has
always been a leader of men!
