Coach Terrence Webb has been coaching for 11 years in Rock Springs and has been a staple for the Junior High program. He has extensive knowledge of the offensive and defensive line and played football for Black Hills State University.

“Coach Alcorn is a guy that Mr. Beardsley and I are really excited about. Just talking to the guy you can tell he is passionate about the game of football and he is going to give everything he has to this program. He comes from a winning culture at Chadron State and a winning coach in Coach O’boyle. Getting him on staff was a win for the Wolves,” Christensen said.

Dillon McCoy

“We are really excited about Dillon being back on staff. Coach McCoy is a guy that lives for the game of football. He is someone who is familiar with the personnel on the team and has high expectations for the program. He is only going to add to a staff that has a ton of energy and a desire to win and put a product on the field the community of Green River can be proud of,” Christensen said.

Overall, Christensen and Beardsley have put together an outstanding team of assistant coaches. The coaches all bring different skill sets and experience levels to the program, but they all share a passion for football and a desire to help the Wolves succeed.
