Head Coach - Richie Rode
Coach Richie Rode began his high school coaching career in 2003 as the Offensive Coordinator at Fort Myers High School, and was there for 12 seasons before accepting a job with his alma mater, Cypress Lake, in 2016. Over his five seasons at Cypress Lake, Rode compiled a winning record and led the Panthers to their first district title in 24 years during the 2019 campaign.
So far in Coach Rode's first two seasons as head coach, the Vikings have had back to back winning seasons, with a Division Championship coming this year (2022). Coach Rode's leadership and bond with the athletes has made an immediate and lasting impact, growing into a year-round program. He has coached many athletes that later went on to compete at the collegiate level, and looks to do the same here at Verot.
Rode's wife, Stephanie, is a Verot grad and works in the Diocese of Venice, and his children are in the Diocese school system. During the week, Coach Rode teachers AP Macro Economics at Verot.
