Alpharetta Junior Raiders Announce 2018 Head Football Coaches

Chris Mixon returns to coach the 8th grade Jr Raiders

The Alpharetta Jr. Raiders are happy to announce the return of Chris Mixon as the head coach for the 8th grade team.

Coach Mixon is in his ninth year of coaching youth football having coached in the AYFA program since 2009, and for Junior Raiders program since 2016. His football background as a player ended in high school, but his coaching experience includes football, lacrosse and basketball.

“While eighth grade is the final chapter for feeder football, I also see it as the launching point for the next few important years in these young men’s lives. The lessons of this game are not about blocking and tackling as much as they are about leadership, responsibility, resilience, and overcoming adversity. It is my sincere desire that we create an environment together that allows every player to develop those parts of his character before high school.”

Welcome back Coach Mixon!


Terry Moore Named 7th Grade Head Coach

The Alpharetta Jr. Raiders are proud to name Terry Moore as the head coach for the 7th grade team.

After playing football at Albany State University, Coach Moore has coached the past eight years for the Sandy Springs Saints, North Springs Jr Spartans and Riverwood Jr Raider programs. He also helped coach the GMSAA, Future Stars and Born 2 Complete all-star teams over the past four years.

“I believe that Coaches are all put on this earth for a greater purpose than just winning. As a Coach I feel honored to be placed in a position of authority over these young men that I come across. My purpose as a Coach is that my athletes will leave my program as better people, future husbands, and fathers. That they will be able to someday look back on their time with me and my coaching staff as a cornerstone in their success on and off the field. I will live and lead by example for my athletes, their families and the Alpharetta Community.”

Welcome aboard Coach Moore!


Nick Malantis Named 6th Grade Head Coach

The Alpharetta Jr. Raiders would like to introduce Nick Malantis as the head coach for the 6th grade team.

Nick, a graduate of Alpharetta High School, went on to play quarterback in college at Valparaiso University. Nick past coaching experience includes coaching running backs at Valparaiso, quarterbacks at Alpharetta high school for three seasons, and last year as an offensive assistant coach for the 8th grade Blessed Trinity Jr Titans.

“I went to college with the aspirations of playing college football and study to be a teacher and a football coach. After teaching at Webb Bridge Middle School, some life changes encouraged me to pursue a career outside of education, but my passion to impact young people remains. Some of the most influential people in my life are coaches, and I want to pass that along. I hope to be a positive role model and inspire the young men in my program.”

Welcome to the program Coach Malantis!
