Chad’s extensive football experience has brought a new level of respect to the sport at Sayre. On top of this, the players have also realized that they have a rare chance of learning the game from a former NFL player.

“All of our coaches including myself, we’ve been 15-16 years old being a high school football player and student-athlete, we understand the challenges that they face,” Pennington said.

Pennington’s other son, Luke Pennington, is also with the squad at Sayre, learning from his dad.

Besides charity and football coaching, he has also ventured into stock contracting. Pennington and his family currently reside in Woodford County, Kentucky.
