Q: Tell us about your family.
A: I am married with two children, but I have recently added a son-in-law to the family. My wife, Gyna, is a teacher at Colleyville Heritage High School, and we have been married for 25 years. My son, Colten, is about to be 21, and is a student-athlete at the University of Texas @ Arlington. My daughter, Tyler, is 23, a recent graduate of Texas A&M, and bride to David Beneski.
Q: Tell us about your prior work experience.
A: I have been coaching in the state of Texas over 25 years, with 17 of those years as a Head Basketball Coach. During my coaching career I have coached Track, Cross Country, Football, Golf, and Basketball. My coaching career stops included Kingwood High School, Abilene Cooper, and then concluded at Colleyville Heritage High School. Most recently I have been the General Manager and Coach of the Texas Titans Basketball Organization. All of these experiences blessed me with the opportunity to work with great people and to coach tremendous kids. Fortunately, more than 30 of my former players earned the honor to continue their education through Basketball and/or Athletics. The vast majority of all of my players have gone on to have very successful careers in many facets of life, including medical, legal, business, teaching, and coaching careers. I am most proud of the relationships that I have had a chance to be a part of because of coaching.
Q: What are you most excited about at LCA?
A: I am very impressed with the opportunity to be GREAT in every part of the Education Experience. In my opinion this includes academics, arts, extra-curriculars, athletics, and spiritual growth! I think these areas of growth are available to everyone associated with LCA, and they are only limited by the restraints that we put on ourselves.
Q: What is your greatest strength?
A: I do my very best to see and understand the issues in front of me through others' eyes, not just my own.
Q: Do you have any hobbies?
A: I enjoy all sports, and I love to hunt, fish, and find a way to get outdoors.
Q: If you could go back in time to any era, which would you use choose and why?
A: Maybe the 70's-80's. It seems like life moved at a slower pace, and people actually had to communicate with other people face to face.
Q: Tell us something most people don't know about you.
A: I am not afraid of failure, but I am completely frightened by the thought of not trying because of the fear of not succeeding!
