It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Academy ISD Athletic Director. Academy Athletics has been a part of my life and my family's life for as long as I can remember. As a former Bumblebee student-athlete, I took pride in wearing green and gold in many different sports. As the Athletic Director, it is now our duty as a coaching staff to pass along that Bee Pride.
Here at Academy we push our student-athletes to be multi-sport athletes. We train the total athlete using our strength and conditioning (speed training) program as well as our character development/leadership program. Over the last two years, Academy ISD has finished #12 (2021) and #16 (2022) in the UIL Lone Star Cup. The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually based on the school's performance in district and state championships.
Our mission is to prepare our student-athletes for success, on and off the field/court, for the rest of their lives.
The Bumblebee Way is what we as coaches hang our hat on. Our Core Principles consist of: Energy and Work Ethic, Mental and Physical Toughness, Unity, Integrity, Accountability, and Confidence, Belief, and Faith. We must teach our athletes to trust the bridge (process) that we build daily, and then teach them to have the confidence, belief, and faith to walk across that bridge to where they want to go.
My wife, Krystan, who is also an alumnus of AISD, teaches 2nd grade at Academy Elementary. We have two beautiful daughters that attend AISD: Hadley (4th Grade) and Hannah (Kinder).
BEST IS THE STANDARD
It's a GREAT thing to be a Bumblebee!
