Cajun Elite Club Director- Lake Charles 

After a successful high school career in Berwick La, I was a scholarship athlete and starter at McNeese State University from 1987-1990, where I earned offensive and all-conference awards.   During the fall of 1991 when student teaching, I was given the volleyball program at Sam Houston, where I have spent the following 24 years as the Head Volleyball Coach.  We have been district champions for 24 of my 25 seasons at Sam Houston.  In my career, we have been state runner ups twice, placed in the state semifinals 6 years, state quarterfinals 9 times and regional playoffs 7 years.  I have been involved with various club programs, and for a short time was a club director.  Because of the demands of coaching, being married to a teacher and coach, and raising our three children.
