Mr. Brent Hawkins

Mr. Hawkins has enjoyed his marriage to his awesome wife Tonya since 1992.  They have two beautiful daughters.  Brenna (25), who blessed them with their granddaughter Haven (5), and Torrie (23).  Mr. Hawkins was born in Billings, Montana but moved at age 5 to Utah and grew up in Sandy, Utah.  He graduated from Jordan High School and went on to get his Bachelors and Masters degrees.  His passion for football led him to pursue teaching and coaching due to the example he had from his high school coach and outstanding teacher, Rick Bojak.  Since then he has taken great pride in being associated with great educators and coaches throughout his teaching career.  It's definitely his honor to serve as a teacher and a coach.
