The Merkel Athletic Department is dedicated to preparing student-athletes for success in athletics, in the classroom, and in life. In our programs, we will teach our players the importance of discipline, a strong work ethic, loyalty, and character by creating a family atmosphere in which trust is a key component. Every coach and athlete involved in the athletic program will demonstrate a great attitude and will give relentless effort daily in preparing for success. The ultimate goal of our program is to have each student-athlete leave with a sense of pride and a feeling that their years at Merkel ISD, and in our athletic program, have been the best years of their life.


We envision an Athletic Program that sets the standard for athletic and academic achievement. The Merkel Athletic Department has strong tradition and it is our vision to build on this tradition and to continue on the upward path of excellence. Through hard work, dedication, trust, and character building between students, staff, and coaches, we believe the Merkel Athletic Department can and will have sustained success. Our vision is for the Merkel Athletic Department to compete for championships on a yearly basis, while maintaining high academic achievement and promoting character development. In order to get to this point, it will take coaches who share the same vision and who are dedicated and passionate in pursuing excellence. It will also take changing the mindset of our
players and giving them the confidence they need to be successful. We believe that through hard work, building relationships, and commitment from coaches and players this vision is attainable.



Christ Centered Community
Commitment To Excellence

Relentless Effort
