“Today with a heavy heart I want to thank the Woodbridge Blue Raider Community for their support the past seven years! Today I will be accepting two positions in the Laurel School District in the fall. One of those positions is as the head varsity football coach. You all have given me every opportunity to be successful in the classroom and on the field and I couldn’t be more grateful to you for that. You have definitely allowed me to mature and grow with every day, month, and year I’ve been a part of your lives. We’ve laughed, cried, cheered, and battled for the last seven years to make this a better place. Without you I couldn’t have become who I am today and I want you to know I will always be eternally grateful! The football and baseball programs are in good hands … to every parent thank you for allowing me to be a part of your kids’ lives and entrusting me to be someone they could learn from.

I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Thank You Blue Nation
