"It has always been my dream to become a College coach. As a player, I always thought it would be a unique opportunity if I were to come back and coach at my alma mater. I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of Central's mission in addition to building upon the history of the program that Coach Keith Ivers, Coach Jerry Malone, and Coach Lenny Favara have built."
