Coach Ro had been with the Rush program for nearly a decade.  In addition to being the head football coach for Van Nuys High School, Ro has been a multi-sport athlete and from the time he could run and catch a ball, he played football, basketball and baseball.  Ro is trained and certified through the Positive Coaching Alliance and is currently pursuing his certification as a Youth Fitness Specialist and Speed and Agility Trainer both through the International Youth Conditioning Association.

When Ro isn’t coaching youth sports, he can be seen on the gridiron as the quarterback for the semi-pro California Longhorns.
