Message from Coach Mike (April 2018):
This is my second year as the Head Coach of the FC Gators, and 38th year of coaching the sport I dearly love; which includes High School, Club, and Summer League.
I am a native of Chattanooga, Tennessee and hold BA and M Ed. degrees from the University of Tennessee (GO VOLS).
I swam for 13 years, at all levels, High School, Summer League, and AAU (yes, I am that old). My favorite and best events were; 100 Fly, 100 Back, 200 IM, and 200 Free. Also, I was captain of the Football and Soccer teams, at Notre Dame High School, where I lettered in five sports.
Currently, I teach World History and am Assistant Swim Team Coach at Bush High School, in Fort Bend ISD. Away from swimming, I like to spend time working out, traveling, reading, and attending concerts and sporting events. I just recently completed my second year swimming Masters and loving it.
It's Great to be an FC Gator..... Go Gators get up and go!!!!!!!
