PHS is excited to announce that our new head football coach will be Brian Wall. Coach Wall is known to the Lion football family, having already served as an assistant football coach.
Brian is a proud graduate of Payson High School where he played linebacker for the football team. He has spent the majority of his life in the Payson area and has great passion for our community. Brian is married to Amy Wall, who is also a Payson High alumnus. They currently reside in Santaquin with their 4 children: Dylan, Trevyn, Kennedy and Parker, after spending a few years in Eagle Mountain. Before moving to Eagle Mountain, Brian had the opportunity to join the Payson High coaching staff in varying capacities including Defensive Coordinator.
After coaching his son’s youth team in Eagle Mountain, Coach Wall returned to Payson where he found there were no tackle football options available for his son. In an effort to build football opportunities for Payson youth he established the Payson Youth Football program and served on the Utah County Youth Football Board. The program has grown to serve grades 3-9, with multiple teams reaching and winning league championships. Last season Brian returned to his alma mater, PHS, to serve as Assistant Head Coach under Coach Ale.
Upon accepting this position as Head Coach, he expressed “Having been a part of Payson High School Football for several years, I am excited about the tremendous opportunities ahead. I take great pride in what it means to be ‘Lion Strong.’ I look forward with great enthusiasm to serve the Payson community as the High School Football Coach. I am eager to begin working with our players, coaches, administration, and parents. I know the future is bright! It excites me beyond belief that I can continue to give back to a program, and community that has given me so much. Go Lions!”
We are excited for the future of Lion Football under the leadership of Coach Wall. More information will be coming soon about the rest of the coaching staff as well as information for players and parents.
