(PALM SPRINGS) — The six-time champion SoCal Coyotes non-profit sports leadership organization announced it has signed former Florida Atlantic and Stetson University D-1 quarterback prospect Justin Agner for their upcoming 2023 spring season. 

Agner looks to reignite career with America’s #1 Developmental Pro Football Program™

The 6-2, 210-pound Agner was once among the nation’s top quarterback prospects, pursued by the likes of Lane Kiffin and a host of other D-1 coaches. He looks to reignite his promising career after a spate of unfortunate injuries interrupted his college trajectory.

Healthy and hopeful, the enthusiastic Agner brings an arsenal of talent, passion and purpose to the Coyotes’ 2023 campaign.

“I’m excited to get to work,” said Agner, who earned a finance degree and did his masters studies at FAU. “It’s been a while since I’ve had this feeling.

“The Coyotes are a first-class, championship organization that has made me feel at home. I’m aligned with everything the Coyotes stand for – and look forward to being a leader in the locker room and the Coachella Valley community.”

Interim head coach Zach Huff is eager to introduce Agner to the team. “His tape speaks for itself,” Huff said. “He can make every throw, off balance, off schedule, with complete command of the position. It’s easy to see why coaches like Lane Kiffin had him so high on their boards.”

Agner brings a wealth of experience to the Coyotes, having played at both the FBS and FCS levels in college. His skill set, which includes accuracy, mobility, and a rocket arm, is expected to have an immediate impact in the Coyotes’ record-setting, fire-breathing Run ‘n’ Shoot offense. 

The Woodstock, Ga., native was an All-Region and Cherokee County Offensive Player of the Year coming out of high school, which made him a coveted recruit by a plethora of major colleges. Notably, both Air Force and Navy were among those offering him scholarships while specifically praising his leadership and work ethic.

The son of Rodney and Holly Agner, Justin has an older sister, Nicole, and two younger brothers, Jack and Jennings.

The storied Coyotes organization has a long history of success, having won six championships in their 10-year history. However, their focus extends beyond just winning games. As a non-profit organization, the Coyotes invest considerable time and resources to develop ‘Above the Line’ leadership in young athletes on and off the field.

The Coyotes’ approach to player development includes a focus on character, leadership, and community involvement, all of which align with Agner’s own core principles and values.

“Justin’s decision to sign with the Coyotes is a testament to this organization’s commitment to excellence,” said GM Scott Alvarez. “He recognizes the value of playing for a team that prioritizes character development and community involvement. We’re equally excited to have Justin be a part of our bigger mission in the lives of the young people we serve.”

Coyotes’ non-profit founder and owner J David Miller said the signing of Agner speaks to the organization’s long-standing commitment of providing opportunities for talented players who may have been overlooked by larger programs. 

“We have a history here of giving great players a second chance, and Justin is no exception,” Miller said. “His signing shows that the Coyotes are a viable option for players looking to continue their football careers while making an impact on and off the field.”

As the Coyotes continue to prioritize character development and excellence, the addition of Agner instantly positions them as a contender the 2023 season.
