Coach Mike Cross

Former High School Head Coach


With over a decade of coaching experience, including roles in Ohio's Mid-State League, Indiana's MIC & WRC conferences, and college-level coaching at Otterbein University, Coach Cross has seen a thing or two when it comes to the organization and management of a football program. Pairing his coaching experience with Bachelors’ degrees in Sports Management & Business, as well as a Master's in Business Administration, he is a coach who understands the importance of the delicate balance between football knowledge, team culture, and program organization.

His journey began as an assistant coach at Circleville High School (OH) and continued with a Graduate Assistantship at Otterbein University (OH), where he coached offensive line. Following his tenure in Ohio, he transitioned to Indiana, where he held positions at Pike, Lawrence Central, and Crispus Attucks High Schools before serving as the Head Football Coach at Covington High School. Coach Cross is currently serving as OC at Fountain Central High School with plans to establish a start-up football program in SW Hancock County.

Coach Cross is a firm believer in continual growth and improvement. He has devoted substantial time to professional development, attending various clinics and conferences, including the last 8 Ohio State University Coaching Clinics and countless other clinics across the Midwest. This commitment has enhanced his coaching techniques, keeping him at the forefront of the game.
