Coach Long has been teaching for 5 years but this will be his first year at Ponder High School. He spent 2 years as a head basketball coach at Lorenzo and also at Hermleigh. When Coach Long is not coaching, he’s all about teaching. He believes every student matters, has a chance, will be loved and held to a high standard whether on the court or in the classroom. He loves that everyday in his job he has the opportunity to inspire and change students’ lives and that everyday something new happens. Coach Long is not only excited to get to know all his students but to start the basketball journey to San Antonio. When Coach Long is not at school, he is with his wife of five years who is also a teacher at Prosper. Ponder High School is excited to have Coach Long whose favorite quote to go by is “It’s a good day to have a good day”.
