Coach Roger McDanield

The Glory For Christ football league has lost one of it’s founding members as Roger McDaniel, last evening, went to be with the Lord. The head coach for the North Georgia Falcons since it’s beginning, Roger’s passion and love help build homeschool football and in particular, the Falcons, into a recognized brand both in Georgia and throughout the country. As I reflect back on all the times I spent with Roger, he was the definition of selfless to me. He gave so much of his time, effort and money to help people (players and parents) not only with the Falcons but with other teams. He always had time to talk, give encouragement, advice and even a little discipline now and then when it called for it. Roger was a true servant of the Lord.
