AZ High School Football Coaches and Fans of AZ Football:
I am blessed and excited to be the new Head Football coach of the Arizona Christian University Firestorm! I also wish one of my best friends, Coach Donnie Yantis, and his family best of luck in his new en devour! A little over two years ago we were both leading high school programs in the great state or Arizona and to see how God has blessed us is truly amazing!
We, at ACU, wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the Arizona High School Football Coaches for their support over the past 27 months. To go from ACU President Munsil's vision of a football program to winning the CSFL Championship and being ranked #22 in the country has been nothing short of extraordinary! It would not have been possible without the support of YOU...the high school coaches. The Firestorm will always be built with the best and brightest student-athletes from Arizona. Our Junior day is Saturday, April 23rd followed by our spring game that afternoon. Please contact us with your prospects if you have not already done so. We look forward to inviting your student-athletes to spend the day with us.
At ACU, our plan is to build our presence throughout our state and that is only possible by continuing to build relationships with the high schools throughout the Arizona. Please feel free to contact any member of the ACU Football Staff if you have student-athletes that we need to evaluate. Also, our doors are always open, so feel free to visit and we can "talk ball". If you and your team are interested in being involved with ACU over the summer we have a 7 on 7 Tournament and Big Man Challenge on June 4th, along with a Prospect Camp on June 7th.
Please contact our recruiting coordinator, Grant O'Brien, firstname.lastname@example.org or our Director of Football Operations, Kyle Gray, email@example.com. if you would like information about our summer opportunities for your student-athletes.
I would also like to say THANK YOU! I am proud of my 26 years as an Arizona High School Football Coach...It was an amazing time and I enjoyed developing life long friendships and meeting and working with some of the best coaches in the country! The ACU Football Staff is comprised of some of the best coaches around, and many of them came from the ranks of high school coaches in Arizona. We are all proud of our coaching heritage.
Finally, make it our to a game in the fall...The Firestorm will be playing FAST and FIERY. We look to continue being one of the most exciting and up tempo offenses in the country...no Wing-T, but you might see a wrinkle or two, along with an aggressive, attacking defense, led by Defensive Coordinator, Joe Kersting.
Best wishes on your upcoming season and ROLL STORM!
