A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT:

Hello Warrior Nation, by now you’re probably anxious for the school year to end and summer vacation to begin. As you will see from the updates below, your East End Warrior board of directors has been busy preparing for the upcoming season. I’d like to thank our board for their tireless efforts to provide a safe, fun, and competitive environment for our young Warriors. Interest is building for the East End Warriors program. Many families have inquired about joining/returning to the program, and our online registrations have far exceeded our expectations. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME WARRIOR FOOTBALL!!!

COACHING CHANGES:

Mighty-Mite Coach Transition

We are sad to announce that Coach Brandon White will no longer lead the East End Warriors Mighty Mite team. Brandon has been phenomenal at establishing a fun environment for the kids to learn the basics of football. Coach White is one of the good guys and he will definitely be missed.

 We are pleased to announce that the board has approved Coach Isaac Sowells as the new Head Coach for the Mighty Mites. Isaac has been an Assistant Coach for the Mighty Mites, played college football for Indiana University and professionally for the Cleveland Browns.  If you’ve spent time with Coach Sowells, then you’ve seen that he knows the game and is great with the kids. Congrats Coach Isaac!!

Pee-Wee Coach Announcement

The board has approved Shawntae Gibbs, Jr. as the new Head Coach for the Pee-Wee team.  Shawntae Jr. has been an Assistant Coach for the Pee-Wee’s with his dad, and was instrumental to their drive to the 2013 LYFL Championship. Coach Shawntae is a student of the game, great with the kids, and eager to help the team repeat as LYFL Champions. Congrats Coach Gibbs, Jr!
