I was born in Houston, but moved to the north DFW area after
the third grade. I wrestled starting in seventh grade, and
wrestled for Flower Mound Marcus High School for my High
School career. During my time at Marcus HS I was a 4 year letter winner in Wrestling, Track & Field, and a 3 year letter winner in Football. After graduating, I attended Texas A&M University – Commerce on a dual scholarship for track and football. While at
TAMU-Commerce I obtained a degree in Education with minors in psychology and Sports Management.
I started my coaching adventure at Greeneville HS, where I served as Defensive Line Coach. After a short year at Greenville, my family and I moved to Richmond, TX. In Richmond, I took on the challenge of taking over the Wrestling Program at Foster HS, while also coaching Defensive Line. We grew from less than 20 program wrestlers the first year, to by year 9, I had averaged 90+ athletes on the roster during my last 4 years. During my time at Foster HS, my program earned 7 District Team Championships, 1 Regional Runner Up team finish, and placed Top Ten as a Team at the State Championships 5 times. At the head of the program, I amassed 183 Dual Wins, 52 Individual District Champions, 134 Regional Qualifiers, 13 Individual Regional Champions, 37 State Qualifiers, 6 State Placers, 7 Individual State Champions, and 1 individual State Most Outstanding Wrestler. I have been blessed to receive 8 District Coach of the Year Awards and 1 Region Coach of the Year Award.
I have been blessed enough to be married to my best friend Amanda for 17 years. She has been as involved in wrestling as much as I have, as a team mom and wrestling mom for our oldest daughter. We have 3 wonderful children: 2 girls and 1 boy (Riley 15, Reagan 12, Jeffery 8). We are currently residing in Kingwood but hope to make the move to The Woodlands within the next year.
My family and I are very excited to join the amazing Woodlands Community, and I am ecstatic to be able to work with the outstanding students and staff of TWHS.
