Firebird Football Family Members

It is with utter shock and deep sadness that we must let you all know that Brian Hein, President of the CFFF Board, has passed away.

If you were lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak or work with Brian you certainly know how passionate he was about Firebird Football. He selflessly committed himself to do all within his power to ensure that every player, family member and Coach had the best possible football experience while at Chaparral. Many of the elements which contribute to the Chaparral Football experience came about only as a result of his tireless efforts and those of the CFFF Board Members who followed his lead. In particular, he was looking forward to bringing together all possible resources to help make this the best Chaparral Football season yet.

Brian’s passion for Chaparral Football was second only to his passion for his family. He was always thrilled to share the latest update or picture of his sons Brandon, Jordie, Auston and Dalton, and freely admitted that he was at his best when his wife Kelly was at his side. Please share a prayer to help them through their inconceivable loss.

As you hopefully know, tonight there is a CFFF Early Bird Reception at Scottsdale Beer Company starting at 5:00. Traditionally this has been the way CFFF kicks off the season and thanks you for the contributions you have made by becoming as a CFFF member. Brian would have acted as your enthusiastic host and has worked closely with SBC as a Firebird Football sponsor for this coming season; no doubt he would have shared a few “How ‘bout them Birds!” tonight.

Chaparral Athletic Director Tommy Eubanks has spoken with Kelly and she has requested that the Reception move forward as scheduled. She also asked that in lieu of flowers contributions in Brian’s memory be made to CFFF.

The members of the CFFF Board of Directors thank you all for your support of Firebird Football. Above all, as a group, we cannot thank Kelly enough for allowing Brian to devote countless hours as our leader, mentor and motivator.

Thanks Brian, for everything.
