HIGHLANDS RANCH, CO — February 5, 2018 — Valor Christian High School Athletic Director Jamie Heiner announced today that the school has appointed Ed McCaffrey as the Eagles’ next head football coach.
“Ed has been a part of the Valor community for 9 years, and now we’re honored to call him Coach McCaffrey,” said Heiner. “In addition to the incredible experience he brings in developing athletes and their competitive skills, he has a heart for mentoring young men, desiring to help them build character and leadership that will last well beyond their high school years.”
McCaffrey’s four sons have all attended Valor Christian and have played for the Eagles.
“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.
The Eagles achieved consecutive state championships over five straight years from 2009 through 2013, and again in 2015 and 2016.
Now the team anticipates a new season with Coach McCaffrey, whose professional record includes three Super Bowl wins from 1991 to 2004 as an NFL player with the New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos.
During and since his NFL days, McCaffrey’s athletic leadership has benefited thousands of players through youth sports camps and clinics and through his coaching of youth football teams. In 2010, he co-founded the Dare to Play Football and Cheer Camp for children and young adults with Down Syndrome. He is also an analyst and media commentator for the Denver Broncos and the NFL.
“Today I no longer play the game, but I continue to live a life filled with faith, family and football,”
said McCaffrey. “I believe coaching football is the best way for me to serve God. 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.”
