Remembering Coach Kellogg (1962-2020)

It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news that Head Coach Rob Kellogg passed away on April 28. He was much more than our school’s head football coach…he was a devoted husband, father, educator and advocate for young people. Please keep his family in your prayers.

Class of '23 QB Mason Kidd

Mason Kidd recognized as one of the Top QB Class of '23 prospects in the Nation!

Top 2023 QB recruits were graded using the S.T.E.P ratings algorithm, as we were able to obtain more data on recruits like stats, offers, awards and watched the entirety of each recruits freshmen highlight's. One underlying factor that is not accounted for in older recruits is whether or not the recruit was playing on the Freshmen team, JV or Varsity. Check out our April release of our Top 2023 QB recruits at College Football Today and read more below about this star studded class.
