Coach DeGayner continues to play in adult leagues and believes that the best way to relate to the challenges that players face is to encounter them himself.
Coach DeGayner states, "My mission at Century College is to create an atmosphere where players can thrive, especially if they are dedicated to moving on to play at a four-year program, but also for those who are just looking to play for the love of the game. Either way, your experience playing at Century College will be challenging, rewarding and fulfilling. We have a lot of fun, but we are also very competitive. That’s my vision of how the game should be played."
