What does this new role mean to you?

“Donegal football has made me the person I am today. I learned my work ethic there, and it’s very special to me to return to where it all started for me.”


What are your thoughts on your schedule? 

“It’s going to be a challenging schedule. It’s my job to elevate the team to succeed.”


What are your thoughts about the league you will be playing in?

“It’s probably one of the toughest schedules we have since the 70’s early 80’s. With all the realignment, week in and week out you’re playing teams that have won state championships or have been in the state championships. It’s going to be a challenging schedule.”
