Need recommendation: Sports Graphics camera

This is my first post, as well as my first time on this page. I have very little camera experience other than my iPhone, but I  need some advice. 
I am a high school football/ basketball coach, and years ago I started creating sports graphics/ videos for my teams. I relied mainly on others to obtain photos, as well as I took many from my phone. As the years have passed, others have started asking for me to create graphics/videos for their teams.  
One thing that would help me tremendously is having better quality videos photos. To help with that, my school has given me a grant for $750 to purchase a new camera/ equipment. This is will be a tax free purchase, so will need to purchase through Amazon, or Best Buy etc. in order to pay for it.

As I started researching, I realized there are SO MANY options. So here are a few of my questions.

1. Would a mirrorless or DSLR be better? I’m a fast learner(usually) so I feel like I eventually could catch on even if it takes a little while.

2. I’ll be doing some still shots, but many action shots as well. Some short hype videos too.  What cameras in that budget would be best?

3. Are there any deals that include a lens with them that would make it a better option?

Seriously any advice is really appreciated. I just want to get the most bang for my buck!
