About our Coaches

9u Jr. Trojans Head Coach

Derrick Holzer - Born in Glendora, CA on June 21, 1984. Moved to Pahrump in 1991. At PVHS I lettered in football, wrestling and baseball. I have 3 boys (Zach 9, Landon 7, Ryder 2) and an awesome wife Katie who puts up with the 4 of us. This will be my 3rd year with PYS and the 9u team. I had really great and influential coaches here in town and I would love to be a positive influence to these young men and women.


Johnny O'Neal- Got involved with youth football in 2012 as a dad watching his 5 year old play football from the sidelines. Stepped up as an assistant coach that year and found his passion. By 2016 took over as the Youth Football commissioner. Founded Pahrump Youth Sports in 2017, a non profit sports program for the benefit of the local youth  involved with wrestling, cheer, flag and tackle football.
