As we strive for excellence on the field and in the classroom, our football program wants to help develop young men that honor God and to develop great character that leads to being great citizens, husbands, and fathers. Coaching at Dordt and working wtih the great young men here is a blessing, and we are excited to continue to build a program which our community and college will be proud.
