“Relationships bring in players; success keeps them. They have to see the payoff. The Paragould Ram football program will work to create outstanding young men. This starts with all coaches building relationships with players on and off the field. I will do my very best to lead by example with a great work ethic, high character, and passion. Most of all, I want each player to know they matter and are valued!”  

Coach Phillips will be joined in Paragould by his wife, Lindsay, and his 15 year old son, Reid who is a 9th grader.
