By  | 

PINEVILLE, La (KALB Sports) -- Pineville's head football coach Dennis Dunn is no stranger to winning, in the early 1990's through the mid 2000's he was a beacon of success, leading Evangel Christian to nine LHSAA state championships. In 2006 he made the jump to college football to take the reigns at Louisiana College. Last year he returned to the high school as the head coach of the Pineville Rebels.

" When I first got into coaching really football was my God little g and I was excited about climbing the latter of success my world was turned up side down when I gave my life to Christ and at that time I really felt as God was calling me into full time ministry I thought I thought I would be hanging the whistle up," says Dunn.

Dunn remained on the sideline, but found time for his new calling by starting River Outreach church in downtown Pineville,La.

His strong faith based principles not only help him preach to his congregation, but to relay messages to his players to build the future leaders of the next generation.

" I've been able to see that over, and over and over again they become my sons to be able to speak into a young life give them direction and give them hope it's what I do and it was why I was put on this earth and I found that 30 years ago when I found Jesus Christ," said by Dunn.
