at Nova Southeastern University. This was the second time the Dolphin's held this event and it was a great success.
Miami Dolphins Head Coach Adam Gase opened the clinic on Monday evening and discussed the
importance of coaching the coaches and helping "football guys who were building the game at the grass roots. Almost all of the Dolphins positional coaches were on hand to give presentations as were Dolphins strength and conditioning coaches and nutritionists.
Dolphins Offensive Coordinator Clyde Christenson and Associate Head Coach and Special Teams Coordinator Darren Rizzi also gave presentaions. NCAA Coaching Staffs from the University of Miami were also on hand to give live drills and skills demonstrations. All the Eagles coaches who attended came away

Mayor Tooley Welcomed into the Eagle Nation.
|While the Eagles were accomplishing special things on the field in
last seasons big win over Boca. They had a special guest off the field.
Coconut Creek Mayor Becky Tooley stopped by to show her support for the Eagles. The mayor who is a big supporter of youth sports in the City, took time off from her busy schedule to
come and cheer on the Eagles.
The Eagles were eager to show their appreciation to the Mayor, the City and the Parks & Recreation Staff for all their support in helping coordinate everything that goes into an Eagle's Home game.
The Mayor delivered the game ball for our 140 lb. game and presided over the coin toss. The fired up 140's then went on to win that game 32-0. In fact the Eagles swept the day. Winning all seven contests against the
visiting Jets. With success like that we need to petition Mayor Tooley to be at every home game.
Thank you Mayor Tooley! Thank you Coconut Creek!
Thank you Parks & Recreation Dept.
Your help makes us one of the premier programs in the AYFL and we are proud
ambassadors of the City each and every game day.
Special thanks to the following members of the Parks & Recreation Department Staff. Who have done an outstanding job in helping the Eagles in our first two home games.
- Navin Singh
- Tom Maloney
- Darrell Clevenger
- Justin Wallace
- Bryan Smith
