We are incredibly excited to be Sheffield Bulldogs! This is my 16th year in education, and I am pumped about having AP and Seniors at SHS. I am married to sweet Emily, and she teaches at Sheffield Jr. High. We have "toured the south" as a typical coaching family and lived "all over," but we decided to settle in the Shoals and take some time away from coaching to start our family (our 1st child, a daughter, is due in October!). Please contact me if you have any questions, and I will respond. Go 'Dogs!
