Cheer Director & Varsity Football Coach – Devon Cristofaro:

Hey guys! My name is Devon Cristofaro and I am the Cheer Director and Varsity Football cheer coach. I am in my fourth year of coaching, as well as my fourth year
of teaching, all here at Collins Hill High School. I am originally from the
New England area but moved to Georgia when I was in 8th grade. After high
school, I attended the best school in the land, the University of Georgia,
where I fell in love with the bulldawg culture and spirit. It was there
that I found my true passion for teaching and working with kids, so
combining that with my lifelong love of reading and writing led me to
become a Language Arts teacher. I love to travel as often as I can, my
favorite novel is The Great Gatsby, I’m obsessed with spaghetti and tacos,
and am a huge sports fan.

If you have any questions about basketball cheer, shoot me an e-mail.
