Coach Cintron has a B.A. in History Education from Norwich University, and has been teaching and coaching for fourteen years. In high school, he played football and baseball, and he continued to play football in college. He is married to Kristie Cintron, and they have two children: Jackson and Mary Elizabeth.
Coach Cintron looks up to Coach Gary Varner and Dave Patterson, one of his teachers, and finds inspiration from Rocky Balboa (played by Sylvester Stallone), who said:
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place. And I don’t care how tough you are. It will beat you to your knees and keep you permanently there if you let it.”
“You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”
“Now if you know what you’re worth, go out and get what you are worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hits and not pointing fingers, saying you ain’t where you want to be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that, and that ain’t you. You’re better than that.”
