Coach Gomez - JV Coach
Coach Gomez was born in Mexico City. Even from an early age, he was attracted to all kinds of sports. Soccer, of course, was a national way of life, but his first experience in organized sports was playing baseball when he was 7 years old.
He moved to the United States with his family at the age of 11 to Katy. He began playing football in 7th grade, and it became his primary sport until he graduated from Katy High School. His high school football experience included a trip the the State Championship his Junior year, and he credits the impact his coaches had on him as the reason he decided to become a teacher and coach.
He attended Texas A&M University, where he was a proud member of the Corps of Cadets. He graduated in 2001 with a degree in Mathematics, and a minor in Education. His first job as a teacher also included his first position as an Assistant Softball Coach at Anderson-Shiro High School. A year later, he was promoted to Head Coach for the Lady Owls, and he led them to their first playoff appearance in school history.
His desire to coach football led him back to Katy ISD in 2004, where he helped open Morton Ranch High School. He spent four years there, as an assistant coach in both football and softball.
Most recently, he was at Beckendorff Junior High coaching just about everything: football, basketball, soccer and even pole vault. He is beyond excited to start a new career chapter at Northbrook, coaching football and making a return to softball.
Coach Gomez is happily married to his wife Beth El, and they have two future All-Stars (Ashlynn age 4 and Alden age 1).
