NFHS Fundamentals of Coaching
Training and athletics have been a part of my life since I was a child. I spent most of my time as a young kid at my father’s football practices or his own city league basketball games. As I became older I began to become interested in sports contest of my own. Whether it was football, basketball, track, soccer, or baseball, I wanted to play it all. Once I entered high school, I narrowed my field of focus down to football, basketball, and track and field. Throughout high school I was part of, and played for, three Oregon State Championship teams in all three of those sports. After such 4 successful years at a local Portland Metro high school, I went on to play football for coach Mike Riley at Oregon State on a full scholarship. During my time there, I found a deeper passion for body mechanics and functional movement.
Once my playing days were over, I moved to training myself and others around me to help them become the best athlete they could be. I’m a firm believer that everyone has an athlete within themselves, but some just need help to find it. That mindset and passion took me to Westview High School where I have become the head Jumps coach for the track and field team and the head JV girls soccer team.
My areas of specialty are Strength Training, Combine/Tryout Prep, Injury Rehab, Functional Movement, Athletic Movements, Sports Specific Training, Weightlifting, as well as General Fitness and Weight loss.

I have been involved with athletics and physical training for most of my life. Like many always active in many sports in my childhood, focusing on Football and Wrestling in high school. After suffering a severe back injury as a Marine I spent years rehabbing and strengthening my body. At age 25 I entered Portland State University and walked on to the football program. Finishing my playing days I was fortunate enough to stay on staff as a Graduate assistant for the next two years.
