What I Love About MD
"Coach Rollinson’s vision in leading the program is to prepare athletes for their futures on the field, in the classroom, and as young adults. High school and football not only serve as learning experiences and opportunities to improve, they should also create enjoyable and memorable moments for each athlete. Coach is proud of each young man who plays for Mater Dei. Coach Rollinson’s motto is “You create the effort, God controls the outcome.” He demands top effort from his players, his coaches and himself." 


Coach is the proud parent of two Mater Dei graduates and 7 future Monarch grandchildren.
