Bourgade Catholic Welcomes New Varsity Head Football Coach
We are very happy to announce that Bourgade Catholic High School has selected Mr. Marcel Lopez to be the Head Coach for the 2017-18 BCHS Varsity Football program. Mr. Lopez brings 10 years of experience as a Head Varsity Football Coach at a college prep charter school. While there he inaugurated and built a varsity football program and led his team to five State Championship appearances. He was also named Coach of the Year in 2007, 2009, and in 2013.
When asked about motivating and inspiring student-athletes to be excellent in achievement, he wrote,
"Motivation, simply defined, is the ability to initiate and persist at a task. Student athletes should be motivated by trying to become the best version of themselves and exemplify this through their actions on (and off) the playing field. They have to understand that when they put on that jersey they represent so much more than themselves. They represent their school, their family, their community and their team. At Bourgade Catholic they are also called to represent their faith... not everyone has the ability to do what they are asked to do ...(our student athletes) are held to a higher standard because they have chosen to take on the challenge of competing at a high level while also meeting their academic requirements. Mediocrity is unacceptable when you have the ability to be great." We agree with him - BCHS student athletes have the ability to be great!
Marcel Lopez has been involved with Catholic education for most of his life. He attended St. Agnes Catholic School and graduated from St. Mary's High School. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of Arizona and is currently enrolled in an Education program through the University of Mary. In his latest role he has been a Co-Offensive Coordinator for the Varsity Football program at St. Mary's High School.
We welcome Mr. Marcel Lopez to the Bourgade Catholic family!!
