There are not many coaching staffs that can rival the one at the Second Baptist School.

A veteran head coach with more than 30 years of experience, a state champion running back at Katy and star at Nebraska, a Super Bowl champion, a captain from the University of Oklahoma and a plethora of experienced coaches fill the 12-man staff.

It's an impressive group.

"It gives us credibility when we're running out experience, plus energy, plus knowledge with these kids," Second Baptist School coach Terry Pirtle said about presenting an experienced coaching staff to players. "The {kids} buy into it. The coaches love building into the lives of our players."

Pirtle is entering his seventh season leading the Eagles, while 2019 will be his 31 st year roaming the sidelines.

Joining him in the 30-plus club when it comes to experience is William Leonard, who coaches defensive backs and is 34 years into the business. Another experienced coach is Keith Page.

Page is in his fourth year at the Second Baptist School, second as the defensive coordinator, but 2019 serves as his 18 th overall year coaching at the private school level in Houston.

Having that wealth of Houston-area private school knowledge available is invaluable.

"He knows the culture of every school in Houston," Pirtle said about Page. "He is able to help us understand who we're playing and how we're playing them. He does an unbelievable job of scheming and preparing our defense, which was one of the best in TAPPS last year. He's done a tremendous job."
