Granger ISD is pleased to announce our new athletic director, Walter Brock. Coach Brock comes to us from Anson High School where he was the offensive coordinator and QB coach, assistant varsity basketball, and head track coach. He has 18 years of coaching experience, and during his time at Anson helped bring the first district championship in football in 26 years, along with the longest playoff run in school history. Before Anson, Coach Brock spent 7 years at Riesel, where he assisted in advancing the football team to the state quarterfinals in 2009 and area finals in 2011.
Not only did we find a great coach, but we found a great teacher in him as well. He teaches history with a very successful track record of success in the classroom as well as on the field.
A fairly local guy, he graduated from Thorndale High School in 1993 and is eager to return to the area as he settles into a long career with Granger ISD. He’s ready to bleed purple and gold for our athletic program.
We sincerely appreciate the community input in developing the Athletic Director/Head Football Coach profile for this process. We’d like to thank the applicant review committee and the interview committee, which consisted of parents, community members, school board members, and senior staff. They all worked together throughout the hiring process, and Coach Brock became the clear choice for Granger ISD. We’re excited to welcome him and his family into our community!
