Coach Michael

I am so excited about being a part of the Shady Hill Colt family!!

I am originally from the great state of Ohio! I attended Forest High and continued my education at Stetson University. While receiving my education, I played basketball. My jersey is retired and I am in the Hatter Hall of Fame! I attended Ohio University and received my Masters degree while also being the women's strength training coach. My next stop was to go overseas and play pro basketball. I had a blast playing and seeing Europe!! Due to a career ending injury, I came home to Marion County and have been teaching in Marion County for 23 years. In 2016 I had the honor of being nominated to the Forest High School Hall of Fame.

I contribute my success to Coach Wooden's "Pyramid of Success." Through the philosophy of the model, I teach students the characteristics necessary to be successful now and in their future. 

I look forward to the opportunity to teach your child so that they can achieve greatness!!
