Athletic Training. Recruiting. Consulting.

STATUS' mission is to not only develop, train and consult, but  more importantly,  to give back.  The best way  I know to do this is through using the wisdom that I have acquired through my involvement with great athletic mentors and the network of coaches I have worked with throughout the last 40 years.  Peace of mind priceless, and is the fundamental component for happiness.  This peace can be achieved through knowing the help you are receiving is from a respected and qualified mentor.  The STATUS team has very diversified background and extensive knowledge that is available for athletes of all ages to take advantage of and utilize.  Let us guide you down a pathway that will lead you.  We believe the  life skills that athletics can instill, are not only valuable, but never ending.


Last summer's STATUS Hurdle camps went great.  They have proven again to enhance the talents and the desires of the students in athletics and in life. They are making hard work fun!  Looking forwards to seeing more district champions throughout the year.


Kennedy Smith, my youngest daughter, runs hurdles for Texas A&M as a junior. In the 2019 Indoor season, she made the SEC finals in the 60 hurdles running a time of 8.28 seconds. This time placed her as the seventh faster ever to hurdle indoor at Texas A&M. Kennedy still holds hurdle records at The Woodlands High school. Coaching my daughter in hurdles as she grew up was on of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.

Caroline Morris has been training with me for four years. In the summer of 2018, Caroline was a USATF finalist in the 400 meter at the Junior Olympics. That school year she had made it to state in the 400 meters placing 5th in the UIL 6A state meet. She has committed to run at The University of Texas in Austin in the fall of 2020. 

In the summer of 2017, Jean Paul is the Gulf Coast Area Champion in both the 100 and 200 hurdles.  He won the gold medal in the 200 meter hurdles and the silver in the 100 meter hurdles in the Regional meet.  JP then went onto the USA national meet and placed 5th in the 100 meter hurdles and 9th in the 200 meter hurdles.  Proud to be his coach.

In the summer of 2018, Jean Paul got 5th in the USATF Junior Olympic National meet. He was the #2 fifteen year old in the country.
