Hello! Thank you for allowing I9Sports to be apart of your life. We believe in helping kids succeed in life through sports. My name is John and my wife's name is Charissa and we are both very proud to be apart of the South Orange County community. Let us invite you into our family as we have three children Bryan, Samantha, and Nick all between the ages of 2 to 16 years old. I grew up playing multiple sports but mainly Basketball, Football, and Wrestling. Upon Graduation of high school I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and recently retired from Camp Pendleton, CA. I currently coach the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Spartans tackle football team Where I was featured on ESPN SEC channel for winning the Best of the West coast Championship. I have also coached high school Varsity wrestling. I know what it takes to win but more importantly how to teach the right skills and life lessons to be successful! Hope to see you become apart of the I9Sports family!!
