Tonight, I’ll be attending a pre-release screening of the movie “Woodlawn”, and I cannot wait! Earlier this year, I met Steve Fedyski, the COO of Pure Flix (who produced the film) and we decided to partner together to make this all happen. Steve and I hit it off after he showed our group the trailer […]Read more "Faith and Football on Film"
It’s about this time of the year, as Spring starts to slowly make it’s appearance in NY, that the juices start flowing and anticipation builds for workouts and upcoming 7-on-7 competitions all leading up to the start of another high school football season in August.

In a day and age of ‘win at all costs’, it’s incredible refreshing to see a genuine Christian on a national stage who understands what life is all about. It also doesn’t hurt that he is the Head Coach of The University Georgia Bulldog football team, my personal all-time favorite team to cheer for. “What […]Read more "What I Do Is NOT Who I Am"

What he’s doing in the NFL is amazing & he’s making a lot of “analysts” look downright stupid. In a day when so many daily sports stories are shocking and disheartening, Tim Tebow should […]Read more "Jumping on the Tebow Bandwagon"
We did not prevail in our quest for a championship on Saturday (11/5/11). We lost the Section 1 Championship to Croton High School 21-7. The game was a tough battle and could have still gone either way until Croton scored its third touchdown with 3:37 let in the fourth quarter. It was a great season […]Read more "Update on Championship Saturday"
Today is the first day of double session for high school football here in New York. I love coaching football and this will be my 11th season doing what I love in the fall. Football has terms and a whole vocabulary all to itself. It’s literally like a different language. Over the years, I’ve heard […]Read more "The Boys Of Fall"
Some people have asked me if I feel like something is missing because I don’t have a son (my wife and I have three daughters). My answer is “NO”. I love my life and I love my family! Although I’m the only male in the house, my wife and my three daughters give me plenty […]Read more "I Love My Family"
I just got back from a 7-on-7 football competition hosted by one of our area high schools. There were about 10 different high schools represented in the competition, including the high school I graduated from and also coached at for 9 years, John Jay High School. Since leaving to coach at another high school last […]Read more "Why I Coach High School Football"
