Michael Nordeen came to our town last summer as our new head fb coach. Our football team hadn't won a game in years, in fact we had 26 losses before he took over. From the day he walked into our auditorium and met our players he believed in our kids! He told them they will make the playoffs this year. We have a lot of work to do but I know we can get there! The more he talked and practiced they started to believe in themselves and as a team! They made the playoffs for the first time in years. Not only has Coach built them back up on the field he also feels volunteering and giving back to your community is just as important. These football players have volunteered over 200 hrs in their community. They clean out pools, mow lawns, shingle roofs, move furniture etc for free. When there is someone in town that needs help with anything they contact Coach Nordeen. He sends out a mass text to all players. They all show up to help.
