I grew up in Amarillo, Texas and graduated from Randall High School. After high school I played baseball at Oklahoma State and I was eventually drafted by the Houston Astros. After my baseball career I returned to OSU and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education. Before coming to Willis I taught and coached at Lubbock High for two years. This is my second year in Willis and my first year as government teacher and head baseball coach. I have been married to my wife, Amanda, for two years and we just had our first kid, Ella, on July 14th.
