Coach Brad has worked with various football teams, including the Bev Facey Falcons Senior team, Sherwood Park Wolverines and the Sherwood Park Bulldogs, helping as a quarterback coach when he’s not playing. He has also coached basketball for the last 6 years, serving as an assistant coach and head coach of the Clover Bar Knights and the F.R. Haythorne Hawks teams. This has provided him with many opportunities to work with young athletes and he is grateful for these chances to connect with players. He believes the key to coaching is to form a connection with athletes, and our job as coaches is to help them develop as athletes but more importantly grow as people.
“I am excited for the opportunity to work with Peak Football and its athletes. I look forward to being part of the development of the players and I’m looking forward to seeing where their future takes them. Football is a great game that provides an environment to develop numerous life skills, let us help you make the most of your opportunities in this game and be great.”
