I wanted to personally thank you for a great 2017 season. Unfortunately it didn’t end the way we wanted but the journey was one to remember. The relationships, friends, and experiences from this year can never be taken away. People are still talking about the crazy fans in the JUNGLE, the Lehigh Valley playoff watch party at Sapos, and the incredible turn out at the championship game in Jacksonville. Even the Sharks ownership called me to complement our fans. Our players and staff make so many sacrifices throughout the year but the support from you the fans makes it worth it. There isn’t a better place to coach and live than the Bi-City.
Preparations for the 2018 season have already begun, and the National Arena League is continuing to make strides to bring the best competition in the country to our area. We are working on new fan experiences for 2018 to better the game day atmosphere. Have a great fall football season and stay tuned for all the exciting thing coming for the Lions!
Of course, no thank you letter would be complete thanking my family and the real coach, my wife Sarah. 11 years and counting and she is a big a fan as ever. She makes sacrifices every day so I can continue to chase success on the field, and coming home to her after every practice, every game and every road trip is better than any trophy or championship ring.
Thank you again for all your support of the Lions organization, we can’t wait to roar with you in 2018!
Columbus Lions Head Coach
