Katy ISD Baseball Coach Recognized by Positive Coaching Alliance: Presented by Athlete Training + Health
KATY [March 2, 2020] – High school and youth coaches from across the United States were recently recognized by the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) for teaching life lessons through sports, while also instructing players how to master and honor their sport. Out of 700 nominees that represented 44 of the 50 states, Katy High School Baseball Coach Tom McPherson, was recognized as one of the Double-Goal Coach Regional Winners! The organization received numerous nominations and letters of recommendation for Coach McPherson from the Katy ISD community. Among them submissions by students, parents and community members, a fine testament of the impact he has made on the athletes and their families.
Coach McPherson's outward composure can come off as a calm and collected individual, but on the inside, many have said that he has a respect for the game and a passion to succeed on and off the baseball field. In his 42 years of coaching of which 32 have been at Katy High, he has obtained a wealth of knowledge in the sport that has resulted in more than 800 wins. He teaches the players that it's okay to make mistakes, but it's how you choose to react to those mistakes that make a difference.
