On January 2, 2020, I accepted the position of Assistant Football Coach at Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, MD.
Archbishop Spalding High School, home of the Cavaliers, was founded in 1966 and is named after Martin Spalding, the seventh Archbishop of Baltimore (1864-1872). Originally an all-girls school, it became coed in 1973. Its motto is, “One in Christ.”*
“Make ‘someday’ today.” I live by these words. During a coaching transition several years ago, I said to myself, “someday I will coach football at Archbishop Spalding High School.” Here I am. That “someday” is today.
Returning to a coed school, I will have the opportunity once again to pursue girls’ sport coaching opportunities for the football offseason in-house. Progress is already happening on this front. Stay tuned!
I live just minutes away from Spalding so for the first time in my 11 year HS coaching career, I will be able to impact my own community.
I will add value to a nationally-recognized, championship-caliber football program with one of the best Friday Night Lights atmospheres in the State of Maryland.
At a Christian school of the Catholic tradition, I will continue to be a minister of the gospel. Championships are supremely important to me. Yet, my primary mission, unchanged from the beginning, is to use sports as a platform to spread the gospel so that the youth can grow in holiness and impact others with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible, first and foremost my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ whose guiding hand and infinite wisdom has been clearly evident throughout my HS and college football playing career and HS football coaching career. We play as an independent this year with 7 games from November 6 to December 19. 7-0 would be a championship-level Christmas gift. Go Cavaliers!
