Jacob Powers - Head Coach/ Offensive Coordinator

Hi, I am Coach Powers! I have spent most of my life in the Morgantown High Football program. My father coached at MHS for almost 20 years, and I grew up going to practices, games, and film sessions. I even slept in the bleachers because I wouldn’t go home. My love for Mohigan Football only grew as it became my time to play, and I finished my high school career All TRAC, 2nd Team All-State, and 1st Team All-OVAC as an offensive guard.


I went to WVU for both my bachelor's and masters and I now teach at South Middle School as a Transitional Teacher. My love for football has brought me back to help the next generation be the best they can be on and off the field. My mission is to help my players grow as individuals and understand the importance of their role as a team member.


Go Mohigans!

Reese Thompson - Defensive Coordinator/ Assistant Coach

Hi, I'm Coach Reese and I am a huge fan of the game of football, but I am a bigger fan of players who give everything they have to the best of their ability in order to make themselves better and to help their team! I played college football at Shippensburg University and semi-professional football here in West Virginia and I have over 20 years of combined coaching experience with youth and semi-pro football in Morgantown.

Tony Setley - Assistant Coach

Hi, I'm Coach Setley and I love football and teaching the game to the next generation. I played offensive line for Wilson High School (Pennsylvania 6A, currently on a 46 year winning-season streak...Go Bulldogs!) where I was a senior team captain, and for Lebanon Valley College (Go Flying Dutchmen!) where I was a four year letter-winner. I am so grateful for the coaches I had (my O-Line coaches Brubaker & Buehler and my head coaches Covell & Cantafio...just to name a few, there were many more!) and am thrilled I get to follow in their footsteps with the Mohigans I now get to coach.

I am a big believer that focusing on the little things makes big things happen and that the better a player understands the game, inside and out, the better they'll be.
