Phil and his family have been a part of Oceanside Pop Warner since 2012 where he has enjoyed watching hi son, AJ, develop into a better football player each and every year he participates. Understanding that the OPW program can only get better with more parent volunteers and desiring to play a bigger part in OPW, he volunteered to be the Mitey Mite Business Manager. He also helped out on the field with the team as much as possible.
Phil has served as the OPW Treasure since the 2015 season, with the first year as an interim Treasurer appointed by the President to fulfill a dire position vacancy. As Treasurer, Phil has made a tremendous and positive impact for the league. He was able to balance the league’s books successfully, reduce wasted cost, and budget money for much needed equipment.
Since his tenure on the board, Phil has worked daily with amazing parents and young football players. Phil was able to foster initiative and other character traits today’s youth are not always exposed to. It is in Phil’s firm belief that teaching integrity, teamwork, courage, and honor can be done by playing the wonderful game of football, which is something he intends to keep doing in the coming years.
Phil intends to make the 2017 season a very successful year for all of the leagues parents and participants.
