Coaching Philosophy

I believe the game of football is the best thing outside of the United States Military to help develop a young man into a man who can go out and impact his community in a positive manner. I love using the game of football as a platform to teach young men about Christ and about leadership, sacrifice, dedication, and passion for His calling. We will use all of these as a defense here at Dordt and will become a fierce and passionate defense that honors God in our thoughts, words, and actions, as well as in victory and defeat.
