Angela Graves

None of this would be possible without mom. She did much more than prepare each meal, do endless loads of laundry, drive us to every practice, and attend our games. She motivated us to exceed all of the expectations of our coaches and reach for the highest goals on and off the field. Words could not describe how grateful we are for her. We believe all moms everywhere should be thanked and recognized.

Uncle Nick

Uncle Nick has been there since the beginning. Dano and David Jr. grew up watching his highlight tapes from high school, and he has put in endless hours of coaching at all levels. Nick was instrumental in every championship season listed above and continues to coach with a passion for the game of football. He has always been a favorite of the players throughout the years and will be coaching again this upcoming season at the freshman level. Nick brings 15+ years of DB/WR coaching experience and has called the defense for the last 2 years at the freshman level.
