"As a new member of the Rams football family I would like to use the game of football as a tool for their development into young adults and a stepping stone for their futures after high school. Football can be a great tool to teach young student-athletes important qualities that will help them be successful in life (e.g. team work, accountability, responsibility, perseverance focus, and mental toughness), which will be key points of my coaching formula. I will always get the best out of my athletes on and off the field and believe after spending 4+ years playing college football and 14+ years playing the game, that I have seen what it takes to change a young athletes life and habits, as my life was transformed and propelled in a positive directions by the the lessons I learned playing the game of football."
