Head Coach Les Robinson and Dr. Matthew Dixon, Director of Athletics and Physical Education at Trinity Classical Academy will lead the Knights’ transition from 8-man to 11-man football where they will compete in CIF-SS Div. XIII this fall. Coming off another incredible season, the Knights finished 9-2, outscoring their opponents 537-166 and taking three nods on the All CIF-SS Div. II 8-Man First Team for sophomore running back Caden Kulp, junior linebacker Ian Caddow and senior quarterback Colton Oshiro. The Heritage League MVP title also went to Oshiro.

“We feel that moving to 11-man football presents an opportunity for our athletes to compete at a level that will further challenge their abilities and position them for better opportunities,” said Head Coach Les Robinson. The Trinity Knights Athletics Department has already secured 6 out of the 10 games for next season, though they have not committed to a league.

Coach Rob has the experience and knowhow to transition a team to 11-man football. Former assistant coach to the Saugus Centurions and Santa Clarita Christian School Cardinals, Coach Rob successfully transitioned SCCS to 11-Man Football for the 2012 season.

“At Trinity, we honor God and strive for excellence in everything we do, and now is the time to implement our plan of taking Knights Football to the next level. With our solid coaching staff and talented, disciplined athletes, there’s no doubt our players will thrive,” explained Dr. Dixon. “This transition breaks the final barrier for athletes who want to play at that level and who also desire a top-notch education.”

Les Robinson (“Coach Rob”) has spent over twenty years coaching high school football and track and field, winning eight straight league titles and four San-Joaquin CIF Championships along the way. Coach Rob was brought on as Head Football Coach for Trinity Classical Academy last spring and brought the Knights another winning season. Also a pastor, who most recently served as Senior Pastor at The Burning Bush in Valencia and currently serves as Director of Ministries for the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), Robinson is able to help young people develop a meaningful relationship with God through the camaraderie of sports, sharing his own testimonies, along with those of professional athletes.

The Trinity Knights Department of Athletics is guided by a commitment to excellence embodied in Christ-like core values: Integrity, Camaraderie and Victory. Over the course of the last decade, Trinity’s Athletics has grown from 12 teams for 4th through 8th grade, to over 60 teams serving transitional kindergarten through 12th grade. With two CIF Titles and eight athletic scholarships awarded from four-year colleges, this fall the Trinity Knights’ will face higher levels of competition in both football and basketball with the announcement of 11-man football and the move to Division IV Basketball, which will lead to further success for our athletes.

From very humble beginnings in 2001, Trinity Classical Academy has grown from 28 students to over 550 in Transitional Kindergarten through 12th grade, making it one of the largest classical schools in the country. The mission of Trinity Classical Academy has remained consistent: to offer a challenging education, grounded in the Christian faith and the classical tradition, to produce young men and women of virtue, wisdom, purpose and courage.
