Coyote Spotlight ELITE PALM VALLEY SCHOOL NEW HOME FOR SOCAL COYOTES Posted on March 18, 2021 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr (RANCHO MIRAGE) – For the first time in seven years, the six-time champion SoCal Coyotes have a new home. Post-Covid, America’s #1 Developmental Pro Football Program™ has moved its football and game day operations to Palm Valley School in Rancho Mirage, where it will host 2021 spring games in the Gridiron Developmental Football League (GDFL). The Coyotes host their first game April 17 against San Diego. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. Like the non-profit Coyotes, the elite Palm Valley School has a strong tradition of excellence. Since 1952, Palm Valley School has stood alone as the Coachella Valley’s only non-sectarian, college-prep, independent school. The 2020 graduating class earned more than $2 million in merit scholarships alone. Over the past decade, the Coyotes have distinguished themselves among the nation’s elite sports franchises and non-profit organizations, and are 88-13 under Hall of Fame head coach J David Miller. For the Coyotes, it’s also a step closer to home. Earlier this year, the Coyotes and its joint-venture partner Coachella Sports & Entertainment Stadium Authority (CSESA) moved into new administrative offices in Rancho Mirage. Through the past decade, the Coyotes have generously ‘paid it forward,’ offering significant financial support wherever they play. In recent years, the Coyotes have annually supported the Rae of Hope Boys Retreat at Palm Valley School, which is hosted by the Bianca Rae Foundation. The team’s heralded ‘Above the Line’ leadership camps, clinics and symposiums ignite packed crowds and inspire educators and students alike. NFL executives have named the Coyotes ‘America’s #1 Developmental Pro Football Program™’ for their national, scalable brands, community outreach programs, nine-year operational track record, verifiable data, youth curriculum, sales, public-private sector alliances, and measured results. “Palm Valley School is a beautiful campus, with a small-college vibe,” Coach Miller said. “The facilities are first-class. When we’re able to welcome back fans, it will be a remarkable game-day environment.” –Gisselle Gonzalez-Romo, Director of Public Relations ([email protected]) ABOUT THE SOCAL COYOTES The six-time champion SoCal Coyotes are the national standard of American developmental football, and are 88-13 under Hall of Fame head coach and non-profit founder J David Miller.
