High Desert Phoenix Staff (Everyone are volunteers)
Owner Ms. Cook
"The Longest Tenured Hispanic Female Semi-Pro Football Owner in the USA and Possibly the World.
13 Years Owner, 15 Years in Semi-Pro Football!!!!!
I Established The High Desert Phoenix in Feb. 2009
"We Volunteer our time to help our Players, and our Communities. "
I created the High Desert Phoenix in 2009, to help talented, Athletic Football Players, sharpen their skills to perhaps pursue a Higher Level of Football, and also for them to help volunteer their time for various Charities throughout our Communities.
I was a High School Coach, and then a Concert Promoter, and then became an Owner of a Semi-Pro Football Team, the High Desert Phoenix which really reflex's my personality of rebirth.
To date, I am the longest lasting Hispanic Owner in the United States, going on 13 years. I have a total of 15 years in Semi-Pro. I am very proud of the work that I have accomplished, but could not have done it, without the wonderful Volunteers that I have had for the Phoenix throughout the years. Many Players, and Staff, come and go, but never think, that I do not appreciate the time, and effort each one of them has put into our program, and glad to see the Phoenix made a huge part of their growth in life, and in our society.
It was a previlage to be part of the PCFC League, but we ventured out and became members of the West Coast Football League for the 2021-2022 Season. I am now also the Secretary for the WCFL. My 3rd League as a Board member, and League Secretary.
We could not have done what we have done so far without the numerous Sponsors, and Fans we have had. Thank you so much.
I am Proud of the level of Coaches, and Athletes we have, and continue to add to our Roster. We are truly Blessed.
