Devin Saban

Devin was a three year starter for Cony in the late ‘80’s, playing running back and linebacker. In 1988, he was a captain and led the defense for Cony when they defeated Gardiner 22-0, ending a 7 year Gardiner winning streak. After serving in the military, Devin returned to Augusta and coached his son Jonathan throughout his years in the youth program, and joined the Cony high school staff in 2009. He was the wide receivers and defensive ends coach for Cony in 2013 when the Rams won their first state championship in the final minute on a 25-yard pass caught by his son Jonathan. Devin has been an outstanding role model for the youth of Augusta and still serves as a volunteer assistant on Cony’s staff.
