I am appreciative that Coach McEldowney & Coach Moore believed in me last year and brought me on as a member of the boys staff. I look forward to maintaining and building on the success of the program. To say I’m excited to take the reins would be an understatement. I’m ready to get to work. Go Trojans!”
