Mr. Jon Boer New Head Football Coach at The Mount

Borer, a Nebraska native and 2002 Wahoo Bishop Neumann graduate, comes to Mount Michael Benedictine after serving as the head coach of Thomas More Prep-Marian, a 240 student coed boarding school in Hays, Kansas, for the previous two seasons.  Borer was instrumental in helping Thomas More Prep have its first winning season since 2003 and compiled a two year record of 7-11. Borer’s 2011 squad went 5-4 and was one win away from the Kansas state football playoffs.

Prior to coaching at Thomas More Prep, Borer served as the offensive coordinator at Nebraska City Lourdes where his teams set school records for passing and offensive yardage and finished ranked in the top five in Class C-2.

Borer was a four year starting quarterback for Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, IA where he completed his degree in secondary education.

At Mount Michael Benedictine, he’ll replace Dave Plendl, who resigned at the completion of the 2011 season.  Borer is very familiar with Mount Michael Benedictine’s excellent academic and athletic reputation having competed against Mount Michael Benedictine teams throughout his high school career at Wahoo Bishop Neumann.

Borer will be a full time member of the Mount Michael Benedictine staff and work at the school in the social studies department.  “We are very excited about the addition of Coach Borer to the staff of Mount Michael Benedictine School.  We are thrilled about what he brings to Mount Michael.  His experience as a football coach and high school social studies teacher will greatly benefit our boys,” said Mount Michael Benedictine Head of School Dr. David Peters.  “His youth and energy will take our program to the next level.  Coach Borer is a man of integrity and a wonderful role model for our young men,”
