Coach Roz

While coaching varsity football at Sacramento’s Encina High School, former NFL player Greg Roeszler, discovered a disturbing fact – one of his student athletes was sleeping in his car to avoid returning to a troubled home.

He soon realized the majority of his players faced daily struggles to survive and were surrounded by crime, gangs, violence, drugs and alcohol. In 2009, Roeszler founded The Playmakers – a nonprofit organization designed to build leadership and character through sports and academics.

Thanks to your generous support, we are able to continue offering our programs, camps and events completely free of charge to participants and their families.
