Spartans – Men’s Team

Our Spartans Men’s team has been a continual force in the league, challenging top level teams, showing off its burning desire to win, and playing with true Spartan spirit. Coming off a red hot 2016, and its first ever playoff birth, our Men’s team is looking to continue to build on its recent success and become a top level contender.

Head Coach Gary Price has done an amazing job turning this team around in his 2 year tenure, implementing the stepping stones for the teams success. 2016 saw the return of Defensive Coordinator Matthew Lewis, who led the Spartan’s defensive to be the 2nd ranked defense in the league. The team looks to build on it’s 2016 success in the 2017 season.
