Our team perseverance over trauma stood out this season. We really responded as a brotherhood to any and all adversity we collectively faced.

Our staff is phenomenal, I wouldn’t be able to run this program as fluidly without the men who grind on a daily basis to mentor our young men. We operate with a very small budget, but the men I’m blessed to work with do it for the grown of our student-athletes and our community.

We have a service component to our program. Our players have read to an area elementary school and regularly mentor younger players in their community. We our building men for our community to flourish.
