As the Head Football Coach I would like to welcome you to another year of Saint Ignatius Football, home of the Wolfpack! This is a sensational time to be associated with Wolfpack football. 

In March of 2014, I was blessed to be asked to lead the Wolfpack football program after 13 years as an assistant coach at Mount Carmel High School. I hope to bring a wealth of football knowledge and experience to Saint Ignatius along with a positive attitude and genuine excitement that will transcend the Wolfpack into champions of the Chicago Catholic League White Division. Please familiarize yourself with the football webpage and please contact me with any inquires you may have.

Go Wolfpack!
