Prior to settling down in Prince Edward County to raise a family Gerry played competitive high school football and was an accomplished track and field athlete.
Today Gerry comes to the Skyhawks with three years experience coaching football with the Centennial High School Chargers and the Minor Chargers in the Belleville Minor football league. With both teams Gerry worked with special teams and the offence. It was here that Gerry could instill his love and passion for football into the youth he worked within the community. Gerry was excited to be part of the coaching staff that led the Chargers to a Bay of Quinte Championship in 2017 and COSSA Champions for 2018. Just as exciting was winning the Minor Football Championship in 2018. Along with coaching football Gerry also coached rep soccer from 2009-2014.
Coaching Philosophy: “I firmly believe in developing one’s passion for the sport first and from that passion will come success. The desire to win, to get better, and to believe in each other is something I push all my athletes to feel. A love for the game, hard work, dedication and a respect for teammates can make any team reach goals that once seemed impossible.”
Gerry is very excited to be joining the Skyhawks team for the upcoming season and sharing his football knowledge and experience he has acquired over the years from coaching and taking various courses and working with a host of talented football coaches.
