WASHINGTON - The Georgia Warriors franchise of the Minor Football League (MFL), will be under new leadership with the appointment of Scottie Glover as the team’s new general manager. The Linden, N.J. native helped lead the local high school to a conference championship.
After four years of starting for the Linden High School football team in New Jersey, he accepted a scholarship offer to play cornerback for Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa. During his time at Bucknell, he added a conference championship to his list of accolades. After college, he returned home to Linden to coach at his former high school. He coached the Linden High Tigers’ defensive backfield with his former head coach, James “Bucky” McDonald from 2003 until 2005. After his third season, he moved from New Jersey to Georgia.
Glover began coaching for the Duluth Youth and High School organization as a defensive coordinator for the freshman team under Coach Billy “Whiteshoes” Johnson. He held this role from 2009 to 2011. From 2012 until 2013, he was the offensive coordinator for Ben Perry’s travel youth team, the Gwinnett/North Dekalb Chargers. Coach Glover then joined Coach Tim Freeman’s staff at the North Georgia Sports Academy in 2013 as coordinator of the Mountaineer defense and special teams. He also assumed the role of associate head coach for the Mountaineer’s defense until 2017.
In 2015, he won his first conference championship as a coach. During the spring of 2014, he joined the Atlanta Sharks professional arena team under head coach Marcus James. As a member of coach James’ staff, Coach Glover also coordinated the Sharks’ defense and special teams for two seasons. In 2014, Coach Glover also started a private football coaching/training practice which currently ranks number one in Georgia and number two in the country, according to the website CoachUp.com. In 2018, Coach Glover joined Coach Damon Dawson’s staff at Atlanta Sports City Prep as a defensive backs coach and director of student-athlete development for the Spartans. As of the 2019 season, Coach Glover splits his time as the defensive backs and linebackers coach, under Coach Cedric Roach at Georgia Knights Prep Academy where he won yet another conference championship.
Glover brings an extensive football background and new leadership to the Georgia Warriors organization that is rooted in discipline. His wife, Kelly Glover will be the chief operations officer and head of entertainment. The duo's plan is to bring their winning culture and a family environment to the Georgia community.

The MFL is NOT a semi-pro league. There is no such thing as “semi-pro.” That is another name for sandlot football. The MFL is a 21st-century model and beyond. The MFL has changed the game of football on and off the field by taking players from the field to the front office. The MFL is a professional minor league like minor league baseball, hockey or the G League in NBA basketball. At the grassroots levels, all MFL players are required to partake in community service, a key component of the league's mission. The MFL is known as “the laboratory of change” and provides “integrity, commitment, and excellence in all we do.”
