Coach Melo

Football coach, Al Melo, of the Harrison High School Panthers in Colorado Springs, CO was named 3A Football Coach of the Year on December 5, 2018.

Coach Al Melo created a successful football program for Harrison High School. These achievements translated in numbers with the Panthers overall rating of 11-1 for their 2018 season. Prior to their playoff victory against Holy Family, the Panthers were 0-7 in the playoffs, losing every game by at least 14-points.

“[I am] very proud of our kids and our school,” says Coach Melo. “Football is a great game and a great metaphor for life. If these young men are great fathers and husbands in 10 years that victory is much bigger than any game we will ever play.”
