"With great effort and Amphi class."-Vern Friedli
This is the start of my 25th year coaching high school football and my 7th as the Head Coach here at Amphitheather High School and my 18th year as a Head Coach overall. I am a 1996 graduate of the University of Arizona with a Major in Spanish and minor in Math. I have also been a head coach at San Manuel and Empire High School before wising up and becoming a Panther. I also am an assistant with track team working with throwers for the last 3 years. I am very proud of the tradition that has been established here and look forward to getting back on the field with a fine group of students athletes. We strive for excellence both in the classroom as well as on the field. We always look at our team before ourselves. I am also blessed with an outstanding coaching staff that goes above and beyond for us to put out best product on the field.
Region championship at all 3 schools where I was the head coach. With the most recent being the Gila Region Champion in 2016. Was also the Gila Region Coach of the year in 2016. Have exceeded 100 wins and have been selected to coach the South All Stars on 4 different occassions. 10 playoff apprearances. Selected Region Coach of the year 5 times.
What I Love about Coaching...
Working with young men and trying to instill a work ethic and passion that will transcend beyond high school football.
