Two former NFL greats see themselves as more than high school coaches.

Feature on Randall Cunningham and Vernon Fox who are both former NFL players, current high school coaches and ordained ministers and African-Americans. That puts them at the intersection of what NFL players are doing during the National Anthem, the trickle-down effect at high schools, the struggles of young people in urban areas and faith and race. -- Photo by Joshua Dahl/USA TODAY Sports Images, Gannett ORG XMIT: US 135535 Cunningham Fox 9/26/2016 [Via MerlinFTP Drop]

Former NFL player Randall Cunningham and Vernon Fox are coaching high school football in Nevada and preaching to their players that they have options outside of football.

It’s been both of their focus, as they not only bring an NFL pedigree to the sidelines, but Cunningham and Fox are also ordained ministers. Another similarity. Fox recently shared a post on Instagram that revealed the two have a combined 15 years coaching experience, 24 years NFL experience and 30 years ministry experience.

Through their ministry, they’ve found a doorway to common ground for many players who are young men of faith and can share that on the football field with their coaches.
