Toby Keith, Winning Football Coach

Toby Keith, a former semi-pro football player himself, took a break from touring this fall to coach his son Stelen's team, helping them to an undefeated season and the championship in their 15-team league.

The Mud Dogs didn't allow their opponents any points during the entire post season. Stelen played center and nose guard for the team, and served as team captain, though injuries kept him sidelined over the last month of the season.

"It has been a true pleasure coaching the team and spending the time with my son," Toby said. "Having the Mud Dogs become undefeated champions is just icing on the cake."

John Zarling, National Promo Exec at Toby's Show Dog Records label told us this story. Drop him an email and ask him to add you to his weekly artist news email.
