Coach Kleindienst played high school football in Tucson, AZ for the Catalina Foothills Falcons, and was the starter at defensive end during his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. He also played both ways as a senior, earning time in every spot on the offensive line.
As a walk-on player at NMMI, Kleindienst made the travel team every week as a freshman, and saw playing time in seven of the Bronco games that season, including NMMI’s win over Arizona Western College in the 2013 El Toro Bowl.
Kleindienst earned his Associate’s Degree at NMMI, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management and Business from Grand Canyon University.
He spent last year back at his high school alma mater as the head freshman basketball coach and assistant varsity football coach.
