AURORA | Justin Hoffman’s lengthy football coaching history in Aurora has come to an end, at least for now. For the first time in 20 years, Hoffman — an Aurora Central graduate who has coached at Gateway, Smoky Hill and Rangeview — won’t be on an Aurora sideline in some capacity come the 2017 season as he and his family will move to South Carolina at the end of the school year. Hoffman told the Sentinel he resigned from the Rangeview job he held for the past two seasons just prior to spring break.
“I am an immigrant, I came here in 2012 from Ghana, I am an African-American woman. For me, it was like constantly being attacked by someone who was suppose to represent our country and, to a certain extent, you feel kind of weak. But on trips like these, you realize there are people who have fought for you to be here and you’re not just going to let one person take that from you.”
