UNSW RAIDERS OFFENSIVE CO-ORDINATOR The UNSW Raiders are very pleased to announce that Mark Medrano will continue to be the Offensive Co-Ordinator for the 2019 season.

Mark grew up playing Pop Warner football at the age of 8, his father was his coach for the first 5 years and was his influence to be a coach later in life.  Football was Mark’s focus in High School, and, being a quarterback he learned that he enjoyed being a leader and leading by example.  He decided to go to a smaller Division 2 College to play QB at Sonoma State University in Northern California.

It was then that he changed to the position of running back and developed a deep relationship with the weight room! He graduated with a degree in physical education and later obtained a degree in radiology technology.  Mark “found” gridiron in Australia while watching the 1986 Superbowl in Noosa and his 3 month surfing vacation turned into 14 years living in Australia.
