About Us

Taneli Koskela

2nd & 3rd Grade Coach
Taneli always liked football, but didn’t have the chance to play as a kid, as it was not available where he grew up. When his son became old enough to play, Taneli wanted to be involved with his children’s sports programs as much as possible. He began by helping other coaches and started to coach after a year of working as an assistant. He enjoys teaching kids the love of football, and how to work together as a team. Every year he looks forward to helping new kids adjust to the sport and loves watching the returning kids as they grow up to be great football players.

Jack Mallory

Jack started playing football his Freshman year, and began coaching during his Sophomore year. He is now a Senior in high school at Telstar and loves coaching! Jack was able to coach last year’s championship team with undefeated success, and loves that football creates a spot that brings everyone in the community together, and encourages teamwork. He’s very excited to continue coaching to help keep this program going.
