Coach Britt is a native of Alexandria, Virginia and is excited to Coach the National Bowl Game after Scouting last years game. He brings a vast knowledge of the indoor game, strong recruiting abilities, and a passion for the game of football to 2nd Annual National Bowl Game.

He received his start in 2001 with the AFL2′s Roanoke Steam where he served as the Vice President of Football Operations in addition to his duties of Offensive and Defensive Line Coach. After two seasons in Roanoke, Britt accepted the position of Defensive Coordinator for the Bakersfield Blitz of the AFL2 in 2003 where his unit was among the Top Four in the league in seven major categories that included sacks, passes defended, and interceptions. His defense finished third in the league in total defense that season.

In 2004 he took his skills to the Tulsa Talon’s, also of the AFL, where he served as a Defensive Consultant and Special Team’s Coordinator for a unit that was amongst the league leaders in several categories. The next season he was offered an expanded role to join the Bossier/Shreveport Battlewings of the AFL to serve as the Assistant Head Coach, Defensive Coordinator, and Special Teams and Video Coordinator.

Red Nation:
Head Coach Jarrod Rogol (UIFL)
Coach Jarrod Rogol will Head the Coaching of the Red Nation as they compete to beat the Blue. Coach Rogol has extensive Pro Coaching experience in the AFL. He was recently named the Head Coach of

Head Coach Jarrod Rogol brings extensive Arena & Indoor experience to the game including most recently in the Arena Football League (AFL2) with the Mahoning Valley Thunder and the Peoria Pirates. As the Director of Player Personnel and Special Teams Coordinator, Rogol coached the AFL2 International Player of the Year.

Coach Jarrod Rogol is excited to Coach the National Bowl. Coach says:
“The bottom line is scouts and coaches would rather see players on the field over timing 40’s. This game is the last chance these seniors will have to show scouts and coaches from around the country what they can do. Also, with only three practices prior to the game, it really gives you a sense of which players have that ‘football knowledge,’” stated Rogol.

The 2012 season for the Dragons opens March 1st, on the road against the Erie Explosion. On March 10, fans will have their first chance to see the Dragons at the David S.

SPECIAL TEAMS:
Coach David Trout:
Dave Trout has been named the Head Special Teams Coordinator for the 2nd Annual National Bowl Game. Coach Trout will coach the Red and Blue Speical Teams in the Game. He will be joined by his son Merf Trout who will be kicking in the game as well. Dave grew up in South America playing Pro Soccer then moved to PA where he broke the longest Field Goal record and gained a full scholarship tothe University Of Pittsburgh. He started all 4 years playing for the legendary coach Jackie Sherrill, also at Pitt played with Dan Marino, Tony Dorsett, Russ Grimm (room mate) and many other stars like Mark May. Went on from Pitt to sign as a un drafted free agent with the Steelers in 1981 where he played 2 season under the tutledge of chuck knoll. Here he learned from players like Terry Bradshaw, Swann, Stallworth, Lambert, Ham, Joe and Hugh Green, Mike Webster, Craig Colquitt, Blount and many other Steeler greats. He then took a much more lucrative offer to go to the USFL Champions The Philadelphia Stars where he won two league championships and was the all-time league leading scorer nudging Herschel Walker by a few PAT’s. In Philly his GM and close friend to this day was Carl Peterson and his head coach was Jim Mora. “Captain” Joe Marciano who is now coaching with the Houston Texans was his special teams coordinator and said he learned the ins and outs of the kicking game and special teams from my father. He also had a stint with the Cowboys under Tom Landry before breaking his ankle and retiring to the mission field. He then was a youth pastor and went to flight school at Piedmont Bible College where he obtained his airframe and powerplant license and took that to Mexico as a missionary Busch Pilot. All in all Dave Trouts character, charisma and knowledge of the game is second to none and would be a great addition to any organization whether on the field or a front office position.

Dave Trout spoke about the National Bowl:
“I am enthused to coach in the National Bowl Game and to coach my son (Merf Trout) once again and help him further his football career and break into the coaching profession. Having played 7 years of Professional football and having my son who is twice the kicker I was in the world of Pro football gives me the knowledge and understanding of today’s game and how to relate to my players and get 110 percent out of them. To coach my son and the Red team with my son’s friend Jared Rogel is going to be a fun and beneficial time for all parties involved. I want to thank East Preps for assisting my son in fulfilling his dream and for allowing me to coach with other great coaches in the National Bowl.”
