Coach, Gators Bike Team
Coach Rog is a father of three with four grandchildren and retired from high school teaching after 36 years. He loves teaching and anything about two wheels. A self-professed bicycle adventure rider, he has ridden self-contained across the United States four times (twice east to west, twice north to south) including the world’s longest mounting bike route, The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and the Grand Escalante in Southern Utah. He coaches by dangling “challenge carrots” in front of children and then encourages them to accept those challenges by choice when they are ready. His desire is to be part of a child’s personal growth and to help them develop a cooperative Gator team consciousness.
