I'm a coach's wife, telling a story the best I know how. It's important and I want to get it right! Jump on the train quick for the Temple Wildcats are gathering steam! Their destination is unknown but their desire is for greatness. Prayerfully join us as God unfolds a new chapter. They've all been good but I won't be surprised if He's saved the best for last!

As of today at approximately 1:00, Coach Mike Spradlin is the Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at Temple High School, in Temple Texas! The School Board voted him in, he signed a contract and answered questions at a press conference.
Superintendent, Dr. Robin Battershell (below) and the Senior Leadership Team of Dr. John Hancock, Assistant Superintendent of Administration and Student Services, JJ Villarreal, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, Kent Boyd, Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Facilities and Joe Palmer, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources unanimously selected Michael Spradlin as the new Temple Athletic Director/ Head Football Coach.
We met so many wonderful people today! Dr. Robin Battershell, administrators, the school board members, Principal Jason Bullock, TISD employees, teachers, coaches and community were simply amazing. Seriously, I'm not sure I've ever felt so welcomed. We were touched! I can hardly wait to get here! One thing is for sure, as of today, we are officially Temple Wildcats!
p.s. Thanks for the GIGANTIC goodie basket! I can't wait to get my hands on it!
I'm so glad Beth and Kimberly drove from San Antonio!
Coach showed us his new office and the weight room!
I also snapped a pic of the impressive stadium.
(no, they're not suited up today...I got this off a poster. I'm tricky like that!)
Coach says there is a lot of work to do but they'll do it and do it well and I predict in the near future this stadium will be the site of championship football, again.
So, here we go! Please keep us covered in prayer. Things work out much better that way. We're a team, you know. It will take us all doing our best.
I'm a 'middle-age' cheerleader happily married to my high school boyfriend! I call him Coach.... because he is one! A Texas high school football coach to be exact...and the finest man I've ever known. I love him. I love encouraging him and our three 'twenty something' children (aaahh...just the thought of them brings tears to my eyes)plus a growing family and many precious friends. All of which have blessed me deeply! And that's why I love to cheer!
