- "Pain heals, but glory lasts forever."
- ―Chase Stein quoting Alphona
Alphona is the Coach of the Atlas Academy lacrosse team.
- "Inspirational speech time, gentlemen. You guys have worked your ass off every day to get here. You got college recruiters around the country after you. Whatever's come between you guys, it can't be worth risking all that."
Alphona intervened in a brawl between Chase Stein and his Lacrosse teammates Lucas and Brandon, over Brandon's attempted sexual aggression on Karolina Dean. Deeply angered, the coach brought the three kids in his office.
Later on that day, Alphona made a speech in front of the team, reminding them about the importance of their sport careers, and urging them to put aside their difficulties to not risk them. Stein decided to leave the Lacrosse team anyway.
