The Orchard Lake Cardinals Youth Athletics

Orchard Lake Cardinals Youth Athletics


The Orchard Lake Cardinals was founded in 2019 by Jermaine Gonzales. He developed a love for basketball & football from playing in vacant fields as a child, to becoming one of the most highly recruited class of 2000 QB's for Orchard Lake St Marys. Signing on to play for the University of Michigan, it was there that he began to realize talent alone wouldn't sustain him. For the first time, he had coaches questioning his technique, and he knew there were some fundamentals that he had yet to learn which caused his confidence to shake. 

He has dedicated the past 19 years coaching young men in football & basketball at Orchard Lake St Marys in addition to volunteering and training little league sports alongside his young sons. As the 2021 Head Varsity coach, he led his first year team to a the championship game as the #1 seed and earned the MYFCC Super Bowl Championship title. As of December 2021, Coach Gonzales was invited to advance his career in youth athletics, but continues to oversee the Cardinals as its President. 

Welcome to The Orchard Lake Cardinals Youth Athletics, where natural talent meets proper training resulting in confident, smart, and explosive athletes.
