Coaching is an honor and a privilege and a thankless job. It has been my life's work and I love the boys and feel like Lone Peak Football is about more than winning, it is about making good strong leaders and contributing to a better society. It would be impossible with a team of 100 players to make every boy a super star or to get them all scholarships, let alone start and play each one. At every parent meeting I state that I will work with each player to prove them self, but ultimately we are striving to get the best 11 players on the field.
My decision to resign is because I did not want to cause any strain or hurt to the Lone Peak Football program. I wanted to make sure our team, students, and this program continues to be successful and to assure that Lone Peak students and team are not harmed.
I have worked tirelessly with my Administration to make sure that I was following all policies and have done everything that has been asked. I am appreciative of the support I have received.
As stated in my resignation letter, I appreciate the opportunity I have had to be here and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am proud of the record that I was able to accomplish in the last 5 years (51-12), that we made it to the play offs all 5 years and earned a State Championship, sending close to 30 players onto the next level.
I believe I have handled every aspect regarding finances for our program with the utmost integrity and character. I am exiting this program in the black, and have been instrumental in the improvements to our facilities.
Mostly, I loved working with the young men of this community and have enjoyed watching them serve in the military, for their churches, and go into College.
