Clay is Tucson native and graduated from Ironwood Ridge high school where he earned a state championship with the nighthawk football team in 2012, and then signed to play college football at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix. Clay is lifelong athlete and grew up playing sports from a very young age. “After a handful of surgeries and my football career had ended, I found myself looking for a new competitive outlet”. Clay comes from a long line of coaches (father and older brother both being high school football coaches) and once he started CrossFit he knew that was it for him. Clay began CrossFit and weightlifting and was immediately hooked to the sport and to coaching. He is currently a level-1 coach and has a natural ability to coach all ages and abilities.
