Biography:Coach Wrenn is a native of Fuquay Varina.  While growing up here,  when I did I experienced a time when all Fuquay Football programs were revered and feared.  I played four seasons of football before we lost a game.  We were a tight knit group of kids, there for each other always.  I believe that football is the best sport there is to instill work ethic, develop team skills that will help in life, and to help a young man come to the realization that through effort and overwhelming intensity you can achieve anything-regardless of talent many times.
