Coach with player

Help us welcome Jason Knighton-Johnson to our coaching staff as our new Head Football Coach. Coach Knighton Johnson says, “I would like to thank the Edison community for giving me the privilege of taking over the varsity football program. I am looking forward to the challenge.  My philosophy is simple,  I coach to inspire my core values of perseverance, resiliency, empathy, and honor. I will foster these strengths through a system of P.R.I.D.E to guide the development of student-athletes into POSITIVE men and women that achieve regardless of circumstances. I look forward to the challenge and with your support, we will bring a championship program back to NE. Go Tommies!“
