Welcome to GCU Flag Football Club 

The GCU Flag Football Club is a fast-paced, competitive team that is quickly becoming a popular club sports program on campus, and has stepped up its level of success within the past year.  In the fall of 2018, the Lopes reached the postseason of their league for the first time ever, then this past spring, followed that up with another playoff appearance. They doubled that production in the fall of 2019 with two different teams who both reached the playoffs.

The GCU Flag Football Club provides an opportunity for students to build community and enhance their college experience while competing on one of our flag football teams. Players learn to communicate and build a team culture that improves their individual skills and team synergy. 

Each team will practice multiple times per week, allowing players to obtain new skills and improve upon old ones while helping teammates achieve success to become a better unit.  GCU Flag Football is excited for the future of the program, and welcomes any student to try out for our fun, competitive team!

GCU Flag Football Club Coaching Staff

John Keller

Student Head Coach
Contact Me

John Keller takes over as the new student head coach of the GCU Flag Football program after joining the program this past spring, playing a wealth of positions for the “GCU White” squad under then-student head coach Justice Guerrero, and helping lead them to the postseason last March.

Keller heads into his senior year at GCU having already laid the groundwork for a coaching career that includes a year of Pac-12 experience. A native of San Jose, California, Keller made a name for himself as a four-year starting quarterback at nearby Milpitas High School. Earning 1st Team All-De Anza Division honors for the Trojans as a senior got the attention of the College of San Mateo, where Keller played quarterback and wide receiver as part of two Bay 6 Conference title teams. From there, Keller transferred to the University of Oregon, where after a year suiting up in their wide receiver corps, Keller spent the 2019 season as a student assistant helping to coach the Ducks’ defensive backs before heading to GCU.

Keller has also helped coached multiple youth football teams back home and has remained close to his team from the College of San Mateo as a defensive analyst. Keller also works to use his current major, sports psychology, in his coaching, referring to himself as not just a sports coach, but a ‘mindset coach’.

After earning his Associate of Arts degree from CSM, Keller is scheduled to graduate from GCU in April 2021 with his bachelor’s degree in sports psychology, and already plans to start earning his master’s degree next summer in performance psychology at NorthCentral University in San Diego, California. In between graduating from GCU and enrolling at NCU, Keller plans to marry his fiancée, Hannah, back home in northern California.

Hannah Moncrief

Student Assistant Coach

Hannah Moncrief continues to blaze a historic trail as she begins her first year on the coaching staff of the Grand Canyon University Flag Football Club. When she joined the team last year as a player, Moncrief became the first female in the history of the program to don a flag football uniform. Now she joins John Keller’s staff as the first female coach in Lopes’ Flag Football history.

While it’s only the second year that Moncrief will experience the contact version of flag football, she comes to the team with flag football experience dating all the way to the 6th grade. It’s also her first time as a flag football coach, but her leadership skills in the sport have come over time, since Moncrief has been a lead team captain on over half of the nearly 20 teams she’s been a part of. Before GCU, Moncrief spent her entire time on the flag football field as part of PrimeTime Athletics.

A Scottsdale native, Moncrief in the midst of her junior year at GCU, majoring in Forensic Science with a minor in Communication.  After she graduates in November of 2022, Moncrief plans to apply to veterinary school, and pursue her doctorate in veterinary medicine, specializing in critical and emergency medicine.
