Aside from his work on the field, Rosa was instrumental in two major off-the field projects at Freedom: the Jimbo Covert Golf Outing, which raised funds for the Freedom football program and scholarships and the Freedom Gridiron Greats, which is the Freedom football Hall of Fame.

Assuming his hiring is approved, Rosa will be replacing Matt Weiss, who resigned following the 2023 season.
