From Rebels Head Coach JC Boice:

“We are extremely honoured that Coach Hocking and Coach Mennie are anxious to join our staff. Their immense successes speak for themselves and they will have an immediate and substantial impact on our program and players. Aside from the obvious football acumen as a coach, I got to know Doug and feel that our visions are strongly aligned about developing players to their maximum potential.

Also attracting a coach like Doug and Scott also shows the very positive direction the Rebels are now going. We are building something special here at the Westshore community and getting Coach Hocking and Coach Mennie just accelerated that build!”
