Football is the greatest game on earth and I'm so excited to be able to share my passion with the Charger family! I have been coaching for over 15 years from youth to high school level. Most recently, I was the Head Freshman Coach and Offensive Coordinator at Mullen High School. Before that, I coached at Eagle Valley High School where I was the O/D line coach and assistant coordinator. Prior to my high school coaching career, I coached in South Jeffco for many years. My last team (Go Broncos!) has several former players that will be juniors this coming season. I'm a Colorado native born and raised in Littleton. I graduated from a local rival school that shall not be named. Ironically, my last High School game was against Chatfield. After my time playing in high school, I went to play two years of semi pro with the Southeast Silverbacks and Mile High Grizzlies. I was the middle linebacker and defensive team captain. I graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2010 with a degree in Exercise Science and minor in nutrition. My coaching philosophy is that everyone first has fun and secondly gives 100% their best effort. When I am not on the football field or working, I'm spending time with my beautiful family, wrenching on cars, building jeeps, camping or doing something fun. My wife, Kelli and I have been married for 7 years and we have two amazing daughters, Brynlie, 5, and Briar 1, along with two oversized cotton balls, aka Bichons, named Hank and Gus. GO CHARGERS!

This is my first-year coaching at Chatfield. I graduated from Littleton High School and was an all-state running back there.

I’m currently a private money broker helping investors get funding for their investment properties. This will be my first coaching position but I’m ready for the opportunity. Football has always been in my life, and I love it. I’m excited to be a part of something very special this year. This game is such a great teacher for these young men and I’m passionate about changing lives. GO CHARGERS!
