Katy ISD Baseball Coach Recognized


Coach Tom McPherson.

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.

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.

“Every player is special and unique in their own way, and no two players are the same,” said Coach McPherson.  “My goal is for them to be better athletes and even better people, and along the way, I want them to enjoy the game,” added McPherson.

In the coming weeks, PCA will select 25 national winners, who will each receive $1,000 and an invitation to accept the honor at PCA’s National Youth Sports Awards and Benefit on Saturday, May 2nd, in California.
