Michael Morris

Cross Country Head Coach
Girls Track Assistant Coach

Hello! My name is Michael Morris and I am the head cross country and assistant track and field coach at San Marcos High School. I went to Texas State University and was a 4 year athlete competing on both the cross country and track teams. I specialize in long distance running, but that is not where my passion stops, I love everything about running. At Texas State I earned a place on the cross country and track all conference teams, and set a school record in the 3000m steeplechase. I have been at SMHS for the past 6 years and have loved my job and the students that I get to work with on a daily basis. I became the head coach of the cross country team in 2016 and have been trying to spread my passion for running to student athletes! Our goal, be better than you were yesterday and to always compete against yourself.
