I think it is a great opportunity for myself and an awesome setting to be a part of a Christian school that is preparing young men and women to be Champions for Christ. Specifically for football, I have a love and desire to raise young men as warriors for God. To lead them to be leaders at home, work and in the world, for the Lord,” said Coach Vilardo.

AD Childers has been the head coach of the Knights for the past 12 seasons and steps down to focus his efforts on the athletic department as a whole.
