In the last two years Capps has led the Flames to the two most historic seasons to date, which includes back to back state championship games and a combined record of 38-2-4. In 2013, his Flames earned the program's first ever Virginia Independent Schools state championship while remaining unbeaten in VISAA league play. Capps compiled a 19-1-2 record in each of the last two seasons, a program best in the state tournament era, breaking the most wins record in 2012 and tying that record in 2013 with the victory in the state championship. Capps has guided his squad to a Blue Ridge Conference championship every season since he took the helm in 2009 and remained undefeated for the third straight year in the conference. For his efforts in 2013, he was voted Blue Ridge Conference Coach of the Year. He holds an unbeaten streak in his last 31 conference matches with a record of 28-0-3 since 2010 (47-2-3 overall).

In the summer of 2010, Capps ventured to South Africa where he participated in "Ignite the Flame," a mission based tour that consisted of leading soccer clinics for children displaced from school during World Cup 2010.
