Matt Copeland currently in his 6th year teach and coaching. He spent his first 4 years at Parkview Baptist in Baton Rouge, and has loved spending his last two at Tompkins where he coaches both football and basketball. Matt hopes that above all else his team embodies the falcon 5 on the court as well as off: humility, intensity, unity, service, and gratitude. Last year his B team was co-district champions and he looks forward to trying to go back to back in the 2015-2016 season.
The 2015-2016 season will be Lorenzo Brown's sixth year in the profession, and his second year with Tompkins. Prior to Tompkins, Lorenzo coached on both the junior high and high school level in Needville ISD. Coach Brown is a graduate of Texas Southern University. Due to the promise of the basketball program, and working with an exceptional staff, Coach Brown deems Tompkins as "The perfect fit" for him to continually develop and mature as a coach. The opportunity to help young men not only see their potential, but reach their potential, is what drives Coach Brown as he walks into the gym each day.
Brian Knight will begin his 7th year of coaching during the 2015-2016 season, 3rd season at Tompkins High School. Coach Knight was the Head Basketball Coach at Seven Lakes Junior High in Katy ISD for the 2012-2013 season. Prior to that, he spent 3 years as Basketball Coach at McDonald Junior High in Katy ISD. Coach Knight grew up in Alief, Texas where he attended and played basketball at Alief Hastings High School. He went on to attend Texas A&M University, majoring in Sport Management. Coach Knight and his wife, Angelica, have two children, Brian-11, and Kenley-5.
Bobby Sanders will begin his 21st year of coaching in the 2015-16 season. Coach Sanders opened Tompkins High School in 2013, and he was the head coach at Episcopal High School in Bellaire from 1999-2011. Prior to that, he spent three years at River Oaks Baptist School and one year as an assistant at Houston Baptist University, where he played for four years and was recently named to the 1990's All-Decade Team. Coach Sanders and his wife, Nicole, have three children, Jackson-15, Hank-13, and Hadley-11. They have been a part of the Katy community since October 2006. He relishes the opportunity to continue building what the Falcons started last year during their inaugural Varsity season.
