Ron Dickerson Named to the ECP Coaching Staff

"I am extremely pleased to announce the addition of Ron Dickerson, Jr. to the East Coast Prep coaching staff, " Dick Bell said today in  a statement for the press and media. He went on to add that with Ron coming on board, East Coast Prep now has the most formidable coaching staff of any prep program in the United States.

"With Ron joining Troy Davis and myself, we now have three true veteran coaches with vast experience in both playing and coaching at the highest levels of football. Serious prospects who come to East Coast Prep intent on reaching the next level in their development will have a decided edge when compared with prospects at similar institutions."

As his bio attests, Ron Dickerson Jr. has a list of achievements that can stand alongside anyone in the coaching profession, He's been both a Division I head coach and a Division I assistant coach. He's played in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs, He's played for the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe fame, and Dick Bell has made it very clear that he cannot overstate the importance of having Ron on the staff at East Coast Prep, adding, "there is no other prep program in the nation that has the background or qualifications of Coach Davis or Coach Dickerson, and now we have both."

Dick Bell is the founder and primary motivating force behind East Coast Prep, with years of experience in both coaching and administrative positions. He has developed a long list of friendships and associations in the coaching profession that give him a huge advantage when it comes to expediting the recruiting process. He has a knack for finding the best fit for his players.

Troy Davis has been with Dick since the beginning and brings his own impressive list of credentials. A scholarship athlete at Penn State and a member of the Penn State 1986 National Championship Football Team, he was the very successful coach of the Hargrave Military Academy of Virginia, leading them to a national PG championship in 2011-2012.

The pieces are now in place, and everyone associated with East Coast Prep is looking forward with great anticipation to the 2017 season.
