Mike Giovando Takes Over as Head Coach at Shadow Mountain.
Shadow Mountain has been an underdog in high school football for the past five years, with only 12 wins in five seasons. Shadow Mountain’s football program was in need of a complete change, so Mike Giovando was hired as the new head coach. Coach Giovando has 17 years of both High School and College coaching experience. He is currently a quarterback instructor both locally and nationally and trains close to 60 quarterbacks. As an offensive coordinator, he’s helped guide teams like Carl Hayden, Saguaro, and Desert Mountain to play offs. Giovando’s successes as an offensive coordinator is undisputed, and now is his opportunity to prove his ability as a head coach.
The offense is new, the defense is new, nothing is the same.
Giovando isn’t the only new coach at Shadow Mountain, in-fact the program has all new football coaches, and all have won at every program they have been at. This new coaching staff not only brings experience, they are building confidence in their players.
The players are physically stronger, and believe things will be different from a mental standpoint. The biggest change you will see with the Matadors, is a new attitude and thought process. These athletes are not involved in football, they are committed.
In the past Shadow Mountain had many athletes transfer to schools with a winning football program. Parents and players want to go where they can win and be successful. Giovando’s connection to youth football leagues and his reputation training quartebacks, will likely bring a lot of exposure to Shadow Mountain. The new football program has already attracted athletes to Shadow Mountain.
