Gehres rebuilt this football team and, in his final two seasons as head coach, led the Chargers to the playoffs. “You know, I am just really excited about where the program is and where I am leaving it. I am really excited for the future of the program. I am glad we had some success, but the biggest success for me was just being able to see the players come out every single day excited to play football. I was just really ecstatic that we were able to get the turnout we ended up having the last few years”, said Shaun Gehres.
