Friday Feature: Kelli Staggs

My coach and I have been married for 17 years! He was a grad assistant in the SEC when we got married. Since then, we have worked up from DII to FCS to FBS. We were recently introduced to the ugliest side of this business, and the past six months are the hardest we have ever faced. Last week, we left the best home we have ever known for new adventures in a brand new city (our 7th move). We have two teenagers and a dog in tow. I LOVE being a coach’s wife, and I’m so excited to connect to some new ladies in Atlanta, Georgia!

What is your favorite part of this lifestyle?
  • Being part of something that brings joy to so many people.
What is your LEAST favorite part of this lifestyle?
  • Moving. Alllllllll the moving. I root my family deep wherever we go, but it makes it so much harder to leave.
What is one item you can't live without that makes this life easier?
  • My Bible and my anxiety medication.
What is your go to concession stand order or must have snack?
  • I’m wayyyyy too anxious to eat!
What is the craziest thing you have survived due to this lifestyle?
  • We once had to sleep in the private airport lobby on our way home from a bowl game when the flight was grounded due to weather. The entire team, staff, and families. It was only made easier by the fact we had just won our first bowl game!
What is one thing you would go back and tell your younger self?
  • This lifestyle will require you to be stronger, braver, and tougher than you ever thought you could possibly be. Love God, love your people, and love yourself.
