Coach Shane Minks

I grew up in West Columbia, Texas, and graduated from Columbia High School in 2006. After graduation I accepted a baseball scholarship to Texas A&M University where I pitched from 2007-2011, and graduated with a degree in Leadership Studies. After graduation, I signed on to play in the Tampa Bay Rays organization, where I pitched for two seasons. I will be entering my 5th year in education and my 2nd year at Gainesville High School. This school year I will be teaching 10th grade World History and coaching Football (Co-OC/Quarterbacks) and Baseball (Head Coach). I'm looking forward to a great year in the classroom and on the field!
