            “In five seasons with the Ellison Eagles football team, Coach Gregory led the program out of a winless slump and into the postseason, with a playoff berth to finish the 2017 campaign. The loyal Ellison Eagle following enjoyed the excitement of seeing this program regain stature over the last five seasons,” Ellison Principal David Dominguez said.  “We look forward to continued growth and success in the future.

His coaching career has included football, baseball, wrestling, powerlifting, and soccer.

            Coach Gregory and his family would like to thank the Ellison Eagle student body, staff, and alumni for all their support over the past five seasons, and wish the Eagles all the best in the years to come.
