(PALM SPRINGS) – The SoCal Coyotes continued their ‘Restore the Roar’ educational program recently at Cahuilla Elementary School this week with an afternoon of encouragement to third, fourth and fifth graders.

Linebacker and Bemidji State graduate Gary Young, the Coyotes 2016 leading tackler, taught students to live a life that is ‘Above the Line.’

The Coyote captain shared personal stories of his youth. Young described how he used athletics, education and tenacity to overcome mountains of adversity to become a college graduate, and employable, trusted member of society.

Young defined ‘Above the Line’ as skillful, intentional and on-purpose, with zero blaming, complaining or excuses. Eager students earned season tickets to the Coyotes 2017 season, which kicks off August 26 at Shadow Hills.

America’s #1 Developmental Pro Football Program – a conveyor belt of character, competence and connection – mixed an array of audio-visuals, highlights, awards, music and curriculum to challenge, entertain, reward and ignite students to new levels of leadership.

Curriculum from the Coachella Valley non-profit sports leadership organization includes the award-winning Coyote Leadership Quiz™, distributed annually across an array of youth platforms that cover all genders, ages, races, and socio-economic barriers.

Cahuilla teacher Joshua Otteson organized the event, which was led by Coyotes SVP Ron DiGrandi.

Flood Response, whose clients include many of the desert’s most upscale properties, and General Air Conditioning & Plumbing, are title corporate partners of the SoCal Coyotes.

In its fifth year and 10th season, the non-profit sports leadership organization touches 30,000 youth annually through clinics, camps, workshops and symposiums.

All Coyote programs encourage youth to engage in 60 minutes of daily reading. Custom Coyote curriculum typically covers the top (3) core subjects in schools – Math, English and Science, and is administered in-person by visiting role-model athletes, who engage and encourage students to read more and read better.
