Coach Haeger was born in Glendale and has lived in the Phoenix his entire life. Coach Haeger’s mom and dad were both college athletes and coaches so as a result, Coach Haeger has loved sports for as long as he can remember. Matt has been coaching high school football since 2010 and has served in many roles at numerous schools in the greater Phoenix area. In 2023, Coach Haeger was hired to be the first ever Football Coach in PVCP’s 50 year history. He was also the Head Softball coach at another local Christian school for six years.
Here is what Coach Haeger had to say about his opportunity to coach PVCP athletes:
“My goal as a coach is to model Christ-like behavior while providing every young person in my charge a positive environment and experience that they will remember fondly for the rest of their lives. I seek to be the type of coach I wish I would’ve had myself, one who shows grace, humility, love, and a genuine interest in the lives of each athlete.
This is the one job I’ve felt called and prepared to do, and I thank God for that gifting as often as I can.
I’ve been married to my wife Kayla since December of 2019 and we welcomed our first child and daughter Adelyn into the world in May of 2023. We look forward to raising our daughter in a faith-filled environment like PVCP.”
We are so excited to have Coach Haeger continue to lead the charge for our football program here at PVCP!
