Coach Rene Aja


New member
To any who knew Coach Aja (Dallas Metropolitan in the late 90's / early 2000's...McKinney Christian, Lucas, McKinney Cornerstone, Greenville Christian after that)...Rene passed away this past Saturday. He had been battling health issues for quite a while and was in San Antonio when he went home to Christ.

Coach Aja started my coaching career in football at Metro and introduced me to the six man game. He was a mentor, friend, and excellent so many, I learned many lessons from my friend and fellow coach.

Please pray for his family (he leaves behind two grown sons and their families) as they deal with his loss.

In Christ,

Jeff Anderson

Sad to hear of the news; but rejoicing in the arrival of another Saint in Heaven.

I spent some time with Coach Aja at a TCAL clinic in South Dallas several years ago. May the Good Lord comfort his family and friends.
