Coach's Message

I’m excited to have the opportunity to be the Head Football Coach at Springville High School.  Springville is an amazing community, one that I was lucky enough to grow up in.  The school and city support is extraordinary.  Our community supports our young student-athletes incredibly well, year-after-year.  Red Devil Football has long had a tradition of sportsmanship and success.  Success that is measured by the type of character and respect we hold each other accountable to.  I want to thank my family for all of their support which allows me to do something I love.  We will continue to prepare our team to play hard, to play with respect, and to make our Springville community proud.


Springville High School would like to express appreciation to Coach Willy Child for his countless hours of service and for the success that he has given SHS and the football team for the the past 10 years as Head Football Coach. SHS is excited for Coach Valeti and wish both men good luck on and off the field.
