What is the Texas Coaches Leadership Summit?
The annual Texas Coaches Leadership Summit is the signature event of the Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation. We want to unite coaches from across the state of Texas with one primary purpose: to coach beyond the game! Over the years, the state of our society has significantly changed and children are flooding into our educational system laden with social issues that could hinder or negate their chances for success. We will be featuring a slate of excellent speakers who will be addressing core values in the hopes that our coaches statewide can carry the torch to help our student athletes become successful and responsible citizens.

After 18 years in the army with 3 tours in the Middle East and 10 years as the head basketball coach at Martin High School, I’m sharing a personal look at my navigation through dark times, turning my light on, and getting my fight on in the army, on the court, and in life.

Exciting victories and heartbreaking losses will be remembered by some, but the experiences gained through team-building activities leave a lasting impact on EVERY team member.
