Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) coach Kenny Sanchez has been named head coach for the U.S. U-19 National Team in the inaugural North American Championship, scheduled for Jan. 28 in Orlando.

“It’s a great honor to represent the United States and to coach some of the top football-playing student-athletes in the country,” Sanchez said in a statement. “There’s a rich tradition of success with our Under-19 National Team and those who have led it. I look forward to continuing that tradition this January in Orlando.”

Sanchez is 20-0 in his season-plus as head coach of the top-ranked Gaels and won the Super 25 championship last season. After serving as Gorman’s defensive coordinator, he succeeded his brother, Tony, as head coach when Tony was hired at UNLV.

No. 1 Bishop Gorman hosts No. 9 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale) on Friday in a nationally televised game.

Previous coaches for the U-19 team include Chuck Kyle (Cleveland St. Ignatius), Tom Westerberg (Barbers Hill, Texas) and Steve Specht (Cincinnati St. Xavier).
