Gary came to Phoenix, Arizona from southern California.  He has coached high school sports in the valley for over 15 years.  Most recently, Gary has joined Desert Mountain High School as their Defensive Coordinator.  Previously, he was the Head Football and Girls Soccer Coach at Notre Dame Preparatory High School.  While coaching, Notre Dame girl’s soccer won a state championship and the football team two State Championships. 

In 2012, Gary’s passion for sports and belief that every athlete should have the opportunity to play regardless of the ability to pay was the inception of A-Chance-2-Play (AC2P).  Over the last few years AC2P has not only helped to support athletes in pay to play programs but has grown to focus on unified sports.  This focus on unified sports has allowed AC2P to host numerous events for kids with special needs.  Gary is looking forward to continued success while giving all athletes no matter what their challenges might be A Chance to Play.
