Hoover High School Names Theo Evans Head Football Coach
Hoover High School has named Theo Evans as their new Head Football Coach. A 2011 Hoover Alum, Theo will lead the Huskies as they take the field in the fall of 2022. Coach Evans has a deep passion for Hoover and has a plan that will bring the community together to help grow the program into a successful and proud tradition on the northwest side of Des Moines.
“We are very excited to announce Theo Evans as our new leader of our football program. As a Hoover graduate and community member the colors green and gold run through his veins,” said Hoover’s Activities Director Jake Burke. “His main goal has always been to return to Hoover and give everything he has to our students and the football program. Coach Evans understands exactly what it will take to provide a high-quality football program to Hoover student athletes, and he is willing to do what it takes to make that happen.”
Coach Evans has previously served as Offensive Coordinator and Strength and Conditioning Coordinator in the North High School Football Program. During that time, he developed 5 scholarship level offensive lineman and led an offense that finished 7th in rushing for 5A this past season.
Coach Evans has a message for current and future Hoover football players: “It takes what it takes to build a great football program. This will require high academic standards of achievement, consistent participation in our strength and conditioning program, and a willingness to push yourself and your teammates to be outstanding student-athletes. I look forward to working with each of you!”
Coach Evans also had a message for the Hoover Alumni and Community: “Hoover Football needs your support now more than ever. Contact myself or the Hoover Activities Department on how you can support this work. We look forward to seeing you on Friday nights this fall!”
“Theo and his staff will bring a specific passion for Hoover that will grow our program in every way. We couldn’t be happier to welcome Coach Evans,” added Burke.
