Dads, sons bond on football fields across Arizona

They were high school football teammates. State champions. They took their own paths in the 1990s after graduating from Mesa Mountain View.

They stayed in contact, became coaches, dads, and teamed up again as coaches. Now they’re molding their sons on football fields, navigating the delicate balancing act between father and son, coach and player.

It can be tough love. It can get hard. But, at the end, football has formed a bond that keeps them connected to their sons.

Joe Germaine, head coach at Mountain View, and Travis Schureman, who leads Queen Creek’s football program, are among the many coaches in Arizona who have a son playing on their teams.

Jack Germaine is the starting quarterback, getting ready for his junior season at Mountain View. Griffin Schureman is a starting two-way lineman at Queen Creek, preparing for his senior season.
