Buda Bandits Football And Cheer



Jonathan Love

President - Voting Member
Born and raised in Hays County, football became a part of my life from an early age. I played as a kid and throughout my academic career, so it was a special moment when my 7yo son declared that he, too, wanted to play football one day. After researching local football programs, we joined the Bandits organization in 2018. Both of my sons, now 8yo and 10yo play on the Bandits, and I've had the pleasure of coaching both of their teams. I'm honored to be serving on the Buda Bandits Board as President, and am looking forward to serving more of our youth in years to come.

I graduated with a degree in Kinesiology and worked as a personal trainer and physical therapist in Dallas. My wife and kids and I moved to Marble Falls in 2010 where I am originally from. This is where I grew up playing football and formed a love for the game. Wakeboarding has always been a hobby of mine and now I own and operate a cable wakeabording park called Next Level Ride in East Austin. We have been in Buda for two years now and my boys have played for the Buda Bandits since 2017. I coached my sons in baseball, wake boarding, motocross and now am a coach for their football team. I am very excited to see my passion form in them at such a young age. Thankful to be a part of the Bandits!

I was born in Austin, Tx and have lived in Hays County for most of my life. I was blessed to have met my amazing husband when we were sophomores in high school and we have been together ever since. We have 3 amazing children ages 10, 9 and 4. We are a very active family and I am very much a Boy Mom so naturally my sons love for football is how we came to find the Bandits. Football has been a big part of our life for the last 7 years since my oldest started playing at 4 years old. This will be our 3rd season with the Bandits. My first year serving as a board member, my husbands third year as a Bandits Coach and my oldest is about to play his third and final season as a Bandit before he moves on to play middle school football. My 9 year old is an avid soccer player about to begin his fifth season of soccer and my youngest currently plays T-Ball but loves football as much as his brother so he is most definitely a future Bandit! We are so blessed to have found an amazing organization in the Buda Bandits and look forward to being apart of it in the years to come!

I was born and raised in Dallas but have been in the Hill Country area for 9 years now. Since 2017 we’ve been here in Buda where I am a kinesiologist, a yoga instructor, a business owner, a wife and a mother of three wild boys! It took some persuading to let them play football but since I found the bandits organization I couldn’t help but get involved. The first season my son played football I volunteered as the team mom while I was 7 months pregnant! Those next few months I saw our son grow to become an amazing leader and hard worker. As I was sending him off to his game I was delivering our next Buda Bandits boy to play football in the up coming years. It will be our third season now to be with the Bandits and I am thrilled that our whole family is involve. We couldn’t have been blessed with a better organization and family of parents to be raising our kids with.

I work for the Texas Army National Guard. I have lived in Buda since 2018 from Montana. As I moved I was blessed to get the opportunity to continue to coach youth football with the Bandits. I have coached youth football since 2010. I have 2 boys who both play with the Bandits. I love all aspects of the game, I believe that it teaches the players more than a game. I believe it teaches them valuable lessons that builds character and positive qualities that we want for the future of our country.

Hello, my name is Jason Martinez and I am an Army Combat Veteran. I manage post offices in Austin, TX and have lived in the Austin area all of my life. My wife and I moved to Buda in 2008 and love this community. I started coaching for the Buda Bandits before I even had kids of my own, because of my love for the game. I now coach my 2 older boys, Jayden and Jared, in all sports including football, basketball and baseball, and their little brother Jacob is right behind them. My boys have been playing with the Buda Bandits organization since 2016. I am especially passionate about football and think it’s important to teach the players the correct mechanics and skills to keep them safe while playing the game. I am thankful to be part of the Buda Bandits Organization. Go Bandits!

Little bit about me
I started with the Bandits Organization with my older son playing on the Senior level back in 2013. I have a daughter who also cheered from 2014-2018. Started coaching my youngest boy Michael back in 2015 when he was 4 years old on the flag level. Been on both CYTFL and the first year of CFPO coaching. Played high school ball for Hays Highschool here in Buda TX and Robert Cole High school in San Antonio. My goal as a coach is to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to play and learn what this game is all about. I would love the kids to become stars at the high school, college and even pro level.

I fell in love with our community over a decade ago when my husband and I moved to Hays County. We have built a family, a business and a life here in Buda, TX and I am proud to have some small part in building the Buda Bandits organization. My two sons, Hunter and Caleb are avid football enthusiasts and have enjoyed playing with the Bandits since 2018. While I love being 'team Mom' and cheering for my sons as they play, I value the life lessons they learn on the field even more so. Perseverance, leadership, teamwork, grit, commitment and hard work are reinforced each and every game, practice and gathering. I'm proud to be part of an organization who is sharing these important skills to youth across Hays County and beyond! Go Bandits!
