On this edition of the High School Football America Podcast, Bartlett High School co-head football coach Daniel Esparza talks about the Golden Bears. Esparza, who is a Bartlett alum, speaks about sharing the coaching duties with John Jessen, who not only is Bartlett’s all-time leader in program wins, but was Esparza’s head coach when he was a player with the Golden Bears.

Bartlett finished 8-2 last year, one year removed from capturing Alaska’s Division I championship in 2017. Not only did the two win the 2017 state title, when Esparza was Jessen’s player, the Golden Bears captured the 2002 state championship.
