Micro Black

8-10 Year Olds/ Division 1

2017 Team Staff

 Head Coach

Nick Downing



Coach Downing was raised in Apple Valley, and has played sports here since 1985. He is a former Sundevil, and played football at Apple Valley High School as a receiver/defensive back. He continued his football career at Victor Valley Junior College for two additional years as both a defensive end and outside linebacker.

He is now married, and is a father of four children which has given him the opportunity to be involved in coaching youth athletics in Apple Valley for the past 10 years. He has had the chance to work with both boys and girls in different sports ranging from ages 6 to 15.

This year, Coach Downing will be entering his sixth year of involvement with Junior All American Football, and has set the bar high after leading our Micro Black team to their Super Bowl win in 2014. He currently teaches at AVHS, and now gets the opportunity to impact kids in the classroom and on the football field as a Varsity defensive line coach. 

We are honored to have such a positive role model, and are looking forward to another successful year with this leader.
