This will be my fifth year teaching and coaching at New Caney, but my second year at the high school level. Previously I taught and coached at New Caney Middle where I served as the defensive coordinator, head strength and conditioning coach, head track coach, 8th boys basketball, and taught Exploring Careers. Led a defense that didn’t allow a single point scored for the entire football season, and won multiple district championships in all sports. I graduated and played football at Lufkin High School (2005) where we were ranked the #1 defense in the nation. Won 3 consecutive district championships, and appeared in 2 state semifinals games as a middle linebacker. I’m a graduate of Sam Houston State University with a major in Management and Marketing.

I’m a single father with a great 13-year-old son who attends New Caney Middle School. I’m both proud and excited to be a New Caney Eagle! Go Eagles!
