Assistant Football Coach (Offensive Line) North Augusta High School


I was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, but attended Irmo high school in South Carolina. I went on to play college football at Gardner-Webb University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.


After graduation I initially went into the hospitality field and worked as a manager and district manager for Waffle house for two years. I moved into a role at Kiawah Island Golf resort in the In-room dining and then engineering departments for a year and a half. Finally I went to Outback steakhouse as a manager in working in kitchen as well as the front of the house roles for 3 years.


I decided to change career paths and get into education at 27 enrolling in a graduate program through the University of Phoenix. I worked at Chesterfield high school as the In-school suspension aide while I obtained a Master of Arts in Education and got certified to teach for two years. I have spent the past 4 years as a teacher in the business department at Chesterfield high school. I am starting my second masters this year in Athletic Administration through Southeastern Oklahoma State University.


I am in my eighth year of coaching after volunteering at my alma mater for a year and spending the past six years at Chesterfield. I have been the offensive line coach, the offensive coordinator as well as the head track coach for six years. Teams I have coached have won five region titles (1 football, 4 track and field) as well as finishing in the top 15 and as high as 5th in the state in track and field.  I have coached a two state title throwers as well as 23 top 8 finishers in track and field. I have helped get numerous players into college in both football and track and field.


This is my first year at North Augusta high school as a teacher and coach. I live here with my dog Dani.
