John Rabon

After 15 years of coaching Falcon football, Lifegate head coach John Rabon ends his career as a champion after his team beat the Granbury North-Central Texas Pioneers for the TAPPS Six-Man Division III State Championship Game on Dec. 7.

After 47 years of coaching and teaching at several different schools in Texas, Lifegate Christian Falcons’ retiring head coach John Rabon said goodbye to his successful career after his team won the state championships earlier this month.

“I’ve had a lot of fun and, of course, finishing the year with a state championship was just awesome,” Rabon said. “I’ve just learned a lot about people and learned a lot about myself. It’s just been a great ride. Quite honestly, I have received more than I've given. Because I’ve gotten to be a part of all these young men and — in some cases — young women’s lives and that’s just a blessing and a privilege. I’m just very, very grateful.”
