"Denton has done an amazing job for us both as a player and a coach. He works hand in hand with our skilled guys and puts them in the best position to succeed week in and week out. Last season was difficult as we had a revolving door at some key positions but he did a great job of making sure we were ready, had a plan and executed it to the best of our abilities. We feel great having him in charge of the offense and look forward to what 2023 has in store"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
We are happy to have you back on board with us Denton! GO EXPRESS!
