Very proud of ALL of our junior football and cheer teams throughout our 2016 season. Whether winning or losing, our teams have shown tremendous growth and become better young men and women. 

When winning we respect and praise our opponent(s) for a job well done. When we lose, we hold our heads up high and congratulate the victor on their accomplishment. 

We are the Oak Ridge Junior Trojans and handle every competition with grace and class. We are a feeder organization to Oak Ridge High School and can all be assured our high school staff is eagerly awaiting the arrival of these outstanding athletes. Regardless of whether they continue with football, cheer or any other passion, we can't wait to see the future of all of our Trojans as they continue their path to greatness!

Dale Hemstalk President - Oak Ridge Junior Trojans 

My name is Kevin Lopina and I have been playing and coaching football for over 21 years and am currently on the Oak Ridge High School coaching staff.  I started my career at De La Salle High School in Concord, CA where I played for legendary coach Bob Ladouceur.  While at De La Salle I played three years on Varsity and won 2 National Championships along with 3 section titles.  After High School I attended both Kansas State University and Washington State University where I played for two more distinguished coaches, Bill Snyder and Bill Doba.  Throughout my football career I was trained by Roger Theder, one of the nation's most prominent quarterback coaches.   Coach Theder's training program is credited with the success of hundreds of other Division 1 and NFL quarterbacks. 

 The guidance I received during my career has motivated me to begin training quarterbacks myself.  I enjoy coaching kids of all ages and the skills and challenges they will face at each level of the game.  The skillsets needed to master this position are diverse, and I believe that individual training significantly aids in an athlete's success.  My philosophy is that both mental and physical training are needed to prepare quarterbacks to lead their teams to victory.  


Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
