• COACH McGINNIS

    I was born in Garland, Texas in 1969,shortly there after my family moved to Brownwood, Texas where I grew up. I graduated from Early High School in 1988. Following High School I attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sports Studies with a minor in History. I began working on my Master's degree at Texas A&M but decided to get my coaching career started, (I finished my Masters degree with a Principal certificate at The University of Houston-Victoria in 2009.) I began my coaching career in Comanche, Texas. After leaving Comanche, I moved to Godley, Texas. I spent two years in Godley coaching football, basketball, and baseball. After two years at Godley I was ready for a change of scenery and moved to South Texas. I spent two years at the Jr. High before moving to Industrial High School where I have spent the last 18 years. In my tenure at Industrial, I have taught Texas History, American History, World History, and World Geography. My coaching duties have included football, basketball, baseball, softball, Head boys track, Head girls track, Head Powerlifting, and Head golf. I currently coach the Fullbacks & Defensive Ends in Football and in the spring I am the Head Boys and Girls Powerlifting Coach and the Head Boys and Girls Golf Coach.

    I have been married to my wife Stephanie for 20 years. Stephanie is a 1990 graduate of Mansfield High School and a 1994 graduate of Texas A&M University. Stephanie is employed as the CFO with Jansen Oilfield Lease Service in Ganado. Stephanie and I have three beautiful girls, Taylor age 18, Jordan age 14, and Emma age 6 . The McGinnis family resides in Edna. Taylor is a Senior at Industrial High School, Jordan is an 8th grader at Industrial Junior High, and Emma is in Kindergarten at IEE. in the fall, Taylor will be carrying on the family tradition as she was recently accepted at Texas A&M University where she will be a part of the Fighting Texas Aggie class of 2020.

    My hobbies include sports, hunting, and fishing.
