Former Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey has been named Valor Christian High School's new head football coach.On Monday, February 5, Ed McCaffrey was announced as Valor Christian's new head football coach. He will be taking over the position formerly held by Rod Sherman, who resigned back in December -- he led the Eagles to a 57-11 record in five seasons with three 5A titles. "Ed has been a part of the Valor community for nine years, and now we're honored to call him Coach McCaffrey," said Jamie Heiner, athletic director at Valor Christian, in a press release. His four sons have all attended and played for Valor. Two of his sons are in the NFL -- Max plays for the San Francisco 49ers and Christian for the Carolina Panthers. His youngest son, Luke, will be the starting quarterback at Valor next season. Since the school opened back in 2007, the Eagles have won seven state championships -- five in a row from 2009 to 2013, and again in 2015 and 2016.
"I am committed to the Valor community and genuinely care about our student-athletes as I have prayed and cheered for them at every football game since 2009," said McCaffrey.
McCaffrey has three Super Bowl wins from his NFL career (1991 to 2004), as well as experience coaching sports camps and clinics. In 2010, he co-founded the Dare to Play Football and Cheer Camp. "Today I no longer play the game, but I continue to live a life filled with faith, family, and football. I believe coaching football is the best way for me to serve God," said McCaffrey. "Playing football at Valor is not a four-year decision but a lifetime decision that will form our young men as athletes and as leaders." We wish you the best of luck, Coach McCaffrey! Go Eagles!
