Coach Gene Clemons
Coach Gene Clemons has been involved with the game of football as a player, a coach, and a journalist for 30 years. He was a three-sport athlete in high school and in college but it was football where he made a real name for himself as a receiver and tight end. Clemons graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2004 with a BA in Journalism and began his coaching and media careers. Over the next 19 years he would hold positions as a high school head coach and college assistant coach. He would also have bylines in publications like The Boston Globe, Worcester Telegram and Gazette, Bridgton News, Urbana Daily Citizen, Macon Telegraph, Football Gameplan, Giants Country, and The Athletic. Now he brings his unique perspective to an underserved and underrepresented Southeastern region of the Football Championship Subdivision.
Luke Giegling was born and raised in St. Louis. He went on to play football at Southern Illinois, Carbondale and was an All-American Linebacker. Currently resides in Chicago, IL. He attends the Illinois Media School, majoring in radio and television broadcasting. Football is and will always be the greatest blessing in his life; it has led to countless connections and avenues for me to pursue a career in sports media. As a former FCS player himself, he is excited to join FCS Nation and assist with Missouri Valley coverage as well as generally covering defenses around the FCS.
