Where does Pooch coach football? He has quite an impressive history with the sport.

Despite only being 24 years old, Pooch has accomplished quite a lot in the realm of football. Per TrendzJoint, Pooch attended Monsignor Farrell High School in Staten Island, NY. His remarkable efforts on the field led to him being named as an OLB on the CHSFL all-star team during his senior year.

Pooch's first college experience was at Stevenson University in Stevenson, Md., and he played collegiate football for the school's team for two seasons. However, his early college days were reportedly marred with various injuries that compromised his ability to play the sport. Pivoting based off of that, Pooch transferred to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Fla., where he became a student assistant coach at the university's powerhouse football program.

Nowadays, Pooch's competitive spirit is out in full force on 'Big Brother.'

Despite having injuries that prevented him from continuing his collegiate football career, Pooch is getting a different shot at showing off his competitive edge by participating in Big Brother. As the youngest contestant currently on the show, Pooch is stacked against some fierce competition. However, the skills that playing and coaching football have taught him are already proving to be integral to his success as he attempts to nab the show's coveted $750,000 cash prize.

It goes without saying that the rest of the Big Brother season will be filled with plenty of hilarity, drama, and one definite big win.
