OKC, OK— Mount St. Mary Catholic High School is excited to announce Coach Matthew Truelove has been named the next varsity head football coach for the Rocket football program! 

Athletic Director Chris Crosbie comments, “I am really excited about bringing Coach Truelove on board at MSM. He has been fortunate to have worked for some outstanding coaches over his time as a high school coach. Coach Truelove has a plan in place that will make a huge impact on our student athletes. Our kids are going to love him!”

Coach Truelove spent one year at The Mount under Coach Chris Stiles his first year out of college. Since then, he worked with a great coaching staff in his four years at Moore on both the defensive and offensive side of the ball and was part of the 2017 state championship appearance with Bishop McGuinness. Most recently, Truelove has worked under Norman North’s Justin Jones for four years as defensive coordinator.

Current Norman North Coach, Justin Jones states, "I am thrilled for Coach Truelove and The Mount for this new chapter! I have worked with Coach Truelove for a number of years and have witnessed him work tirelessly on a daily basis to make our program, his unit and position group the best that it could be on and off the field. He understands the game of football but more importantly he understands how to serve the student athletes in their journey through high school. He has prepared for this opportunity. He and his beautiful family will bring character, faith, passion and a tremendous work ethic to Mount St. Mary! We wish him and his family the best of luck in this next chapter of their lives."

Coach Truelove states, "I am extremely humbled to be chosen as the next MSM Head Football Coach! The Mount is a very special place, with great history, and a great community. I was fortunate enough to experience the wonderful Mount community early in my coaching career. I am very excited to bring the things I have learned back to such a special place. I am looking forward to leading, and serving not only the young men that are a part of the Rocket Football Program, but also The Mount community. My personal coaching philosophy is to use the game of football as a platform to develop young men mentally, physically, and spiritually. That is exactly what we will do - develop the whole athlete, develop the whole person. I am so excited for me and my family to be Rockets! I can't wait to get started! "

Rocket Football players were introduced to Coach Truelove at a Wednesday afternoon meeting hosted by MSM Athletic Director, Chris Crosbie and MSM Interim Principal, Dr. Diane Floyd. Coach Truelove will host a community meet and greet in the upcoming weeks.

Welcome to The Mount, Coach Truelove! Rocket Pride!
