HEAD COACH >>A MESSAGE FROM THE FOOTBALL

DEAR MUSTANG FAMILY, It is a unique honor to lead this football team into the 2021 season.The coaching staff and I are very fortunate to have a great group of student athletes that are proud to wear the green and gold. As we start the 2021 season, we will continue to strive as one unit (coaches, players and parents) day in and day out.

because of the strength and support of all our families. As the Pandemic has continued, I am comforted by the resolve and dedication and unprecedented resiliency of our student athletes, our administration and their families. I have asked our young men to lean on their brothers, to fight side by side as we push forward in the face of adversity.

The expectations we all have set for ourselves both players and coaches will never waiver. Our goal is to make sure that every student athlete understands the importance of academics, the belief in their teammates and a willingness to never give up on their dreams. As one day ends another starts. So let us all take solace that we ended the day better than we started and that tomorrow will only be better than the last.

I would like to ask our fans to do the same: rally together as one “Mustang family” unified in the support of our student athletes as they continue to work towards the motto of “ALL IN, ALL THE TIME”. More than ever our student athletes are learning what it takes to work together for one common goal. Working harder than they have ever worked before, for the green and gold of Redmond High School.

As I enter into my 24th Year of coachingand my first year as the head coach at RHS, there is no where I would rather be than right here as part of the Mustang family. The foundation of success and excellence here has been built over the years past, even before I arrived here in 2013. It is my honor to carry on this tradition from some of the best coaches in Washington. It is our job as a coaching staff is to build from this foundation and take the program to new heights.We will continue to do this with a relentless passion. As we enter into the 2021 football season, it is imperative that we look forward to great days ahead and feel safe

In closing, I want to say thank you to my family, coaching staff and the booster club for all the sacrifices you have made so that Redmond football can continue to see growth and success. Thank you to our current and former players for giving your heart, soul and body to your teammates and coaches. This is truly a special place because of you! GO STANGS!!
