About Our


We are so grateful for our Woods Cross High School football coaches. They are responsible for training and preparing our Wildcats all year long for season competition. Our coaches oversee all aspects of the team’s preparation, including physical conditioning, practice planning, game strategy, and player development.

We are so fortunate to have coaches who also serve as role models and mentors to our players. This group of men help the Wildcat Football team develop into well-rounded young men by teaching them about teamwork, discipline, hard work, and other important values.
