The list is long of the former Arizona football players who are now coaching and training local young athletes, many of whom are at the high school level.
Many of them joined All Sports Tucson for our show at Frog & Firkin on Wednesday night.
The list of guests:
David Adams (Tanque Verde running backs coach)
Jay Dobyns (Tanque Verde head coach)
Gerhard De Beer (Palo Verde defensive coordinator)
Bobby Rodriguez (Owner of JET Sports Training)
Robert Bonillas (Desert View head coach)
Kyle Day (Walden Grove offensive coordinator)
Devin Veal (Catalina Foothills offensive coordinator)
Julius Holt (Tucson Youth Football and Spirit Federation president)
These former players commented about what motivates them to coach and work with Tucson’s youth. They also gave their take on the coaching search at Arizona.
I apologize about the audio quality. It is something we will correct for future shows.
