Justin Flores knows what it takes to win championships. And that’s why he’s been tapped to take over one of the winningest high school football programs in Massachusetts history.
Following the surprising spring departure of Robert DiLoreto, the former Everett High School football coach who spent three successful seasons with the team, the Crimson Tide are ready to turn the page to a new era of Everett football.
Flores, a University of Maine alum, represents a change in direction for the Tide, who will be led by its first coach in decades with no ties to Everett, a contrast from the team’s last three head football coaches, all Everett natives.
A 2010 Woburn High School grad, Flores played football throughout his four years at the school.
The Crimson Tide will be banking on Flores’ resume and experience to get them back to the super bowl.
He brings with him much football knowledge.
Flores spent the past six years as a wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator for the University of Maine. He’s earned championships at Maine as both a player (2013) and coach (2018). In his four seasons in uniform for UMaine, he played wide receiver and punt returner.
