A vast background in sports and sports management at a professional level including the ownership of multiple Pro Arena Football teams, in it’s early going. Chris is a very involved Director of Pigskin Tournament and the experiences it brings to all families, players, cheer leaders and coaches, whom look forward yearly to it’s Thanksgiving Tradition it has come to mean to all in attendance. Chris is the last of the original founders, who you can find interacting with all the families and teams, being he is recognized as the face of the entire Pigskin Experience!
Jackson has a life filled with sports and management. He played all through college and lasted 1-½ seasons in the Arena league before his body, and his wife decided he was done. Since the last professional snap, Jackson has been involved with several recreational leagues and youth leagues. If he wasn’t doing sales and marketing, he was reffing or sneaking his way on a team! As in most cases Jackson was drawn to Pigskin by the energy and chance to be a part of something better than just X’s and O’s, or making money. He sees the bigger picture and the need for him to be involved for himself; with the hopes his additions will add to the tradition and experience of the teams, players, coaches, sponsors and families.
Jackson brings an aggressive new breath into the sails of Pigskin; his addition should bring together some local companies and deeper relationship building between our staff and our customers. Don’t worry about finding Jackson out there, he will find you and introduce himself!
Chants grew up playing and excelling in football, motorsports and music. While he is comfortable being one of the least recognized faces of the tournament, he is certainly one of the most important. From grounds supervisor to employment supervision, crowd flow, award presentations, employee meetings and conflict resolution…..he wears a lot of hats. Chants is and will always be the glue we need guarding the Pigskin name and experience.
Jeff has been a huge factor in player safety and crowd control/guest experience as a 12 year veteran of Pigskin Tournaments and other large events.
Jeff attacks our clientele the same way he attacks everything in life, at 100 miles per hour. His passion for the young men and women taking part in the tournaments is unparalleled. You will see Jeff on field 2 watching a game and talking with parents, and then BOOM! in a flash he is at field 5 offering paramedic help for a spectator that tripped and fell. We can’t imagine a tournament without Jeff, and we are certain his timely jokes would be missed by all.
Not only is he overqualified, he is extremely to humble for his talent.
Devin has been often our lifesaver for the tournaments. She is not only the best skilled from the accounting side of our operation, but she has the nicest way to remind team moms and coaches what we need to register them. Somehow she has a skill to combine the chaos of check-in with the need for jokes and smiles.
We are lucky to have a smiling face to greet our teams that make the hectic travel from all over North America to our lovely city. Not only is she prepared, but she knows the names, cities and ages of all the teams…….We think she cheats, but haven’t been able to validate that yet!
In addition to being in our family, she is actually IN OUR FAMILY! She and Chants are the power couple that help all the little important things about our operation stay flowing.
Jason likes long walks on the beach and horseback riding. He enjoys a good novel and a plaid Snuggie by the fire.
Clearly Jason has not proofread his bio or supplied one for the website. Soon we hope to tell you all about Jason in his own words.
He also always has one shoe untied……odd right?
Justin fell in love with the game of football at a very young age. He spent many years playing and found his greatest success deep in the trenches where not just your average player can go.. As he transitioned from player to parent, he realized that the passion and love for the game that first placed him on the field still burned deep inside. He partnered with Chris Boudreaux and Ray Hendrickson to run a division of thier youth football league in Utah, it was during this tenure that he began coaching.Working with the kids helping them see their fullest potential, not only on the football field but with thier behavior at home, school, church and in thier community. This had a profound impact on him and invigorated a new love, passion and respect for another aspect of this great game. Justin became involved with Pigskin Tournaments through his involvement with the Utah Youth League, and has been the Utah Director for the Pigskin Tournaments ever since.Justin has a strong passion for the game and an even stronger passion to continue to help mold and shape the young lives he comes in contact with through his work with Pigskin Tournament.
Don’t let the tattoos and goatee fool you, this is one of the most caring and family orientated men you will meet. Not only does he own and operate his own restaurant in Magna, UT (Nonna’s Pizzeria) but See-Bass has donated his time and Holiday to come join the families at Pigskin Tournaments.
Sebastian has 2 daughters, a son and a son-in-law along side his beautiful wife Tina that have all adopted the love of cooking and entertaining. They are a solid team and a fun conversation while waiting for the food to be prepared.
See-Bass is also a musician like several others in our group, should we ever get to take the microphone from Chris’ hands…….you will hear the pipes of Sebastian sing the Anthem!
