If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you win no matter what happens. Coach Andrew Brundu is more than just a leader for the UNSW Raiders. He aims to develop footballers in their physical game, their tactical awareness and their mental motivation, ensuring that they keep improving the skills and stay accountable for their actions. He plans sessions, works on how players could improve, develop tactics, dispense advice and ultimately helps everyone develop both as individuals and as a team. "Winning isn't just on the scoreboard, watching these young men improve both on the football field and in their private life is winning to me." - Coach Andrew Brundu

The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things. This will be his eighth year for the Womens Head Coach Dane Robertson. He has also been the NSW Coyotes Head Coach in 2018 as well as Defensive Coordinator in 2016. Impressively he was the Wide Receivers and Defensive Backs Coach for the Australian Women's Outback team for the world cup in 2017. Coach Dane has lead the UNSW Raiders Womens team (or nicknamed the Raidy Ladies) to the Opal Bowl five times. Having won four OpalBowl championships with three undefeated seasons he has one of the best coaching records in the Womens league. Coach Dane has a proven track record in winning and we look forward to another successful year from the ladies.

Men's Offensive Coordinator - Mark Medrano

The coach in charge of the offensive players. He usually calls the plays and works directly with the quarterbacks. He’s responsible for developing the offensive game plan and works with the head coach on how practice is organized, especially if some of the plays are unusual or somewhat unfamiliar to the offensive personnel. Mark has returned to the Raiders after having a break last year. In previous years Mark has been responsible for the high powered offence that helped the Raiders reach the Warratah Bowl and outscoring teams through the season. We cant wait to see the points on the scoreboard from his dynamic offensive play calling.

Men's Special Teams coach - Andrew Garlin

Supervises the kickers, punters, kick return team, field goal protection team, punt return team, and so on. Generally, he’s coaching the younger players on a team, and he must find a way to motivate them to do their jobs. Many of the special teams’ stars are backups and reserves — they’re players who aren’t yet talented enough to be offensive or defensive starters. Andrew has been away from football for a while but has decided to give back to todays players with his football knowledge.

Men's Running Backs and Strength and Conditioning coach - Peter Mamo

Peter has a dual role on the team. Being the teams strength and conditioning coach he builds programs for fitness and leads the warm-up and cool down at training. This year he is also taking on an extra role within the team working with the Running Backs. He will work closely with both the Offensive Coordinator and the Offensive Line coach to ensure that the Running Backs are capable of not only running the ball effectively but also blocking or catching the ball as a part of the passing game.

Gridiron is such a small community in Australia and so when someone even on another team needs help, we should all pitch in and help. If you can donate even just a small amount to their go fund me page, we're sure it would be very much appreciated.

Men's Wide Receivers coach - Rusty Todd

Wide receiver culture is different from any other because of the inherent nature that the game is often out of the receiver’s hands until the ball is physically in their hands. So many different things must go right for a receiver to make a major impact. Rusty started playing with the UNSW 5 years ago and took the role of Wide Receiver coach last year. He is a fearsome Wide Receiver that is a threat when the ball is thrown his way so with him running the UNSW Raiders Wide Receiver crew we're excited for some big plays coming!
