Madera head football coach Scott McKinney has a goal of bringing former Coyote football players back to the program that they were instrumental in building. And Friday night, the past will meet the present at the Madera Coyote Players Alumni “Stag” Dinner.

“I’m really pleased with how many former players have come forward to support the program and this night should be a great opportunity to come together as a Coyote football family,” McKinney said. “I’ve always felt like we should celebrate those who built the program and this will continue, not just at the dinner, but into the future.”
