Hello, I am Coach Striffler. I am a graduate from Concordia University in Portland, Oregon where I received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Health and Physical Education. My first coaching job was U13 Softball. Shortly after that in 2005 I started my Teaching and Coaching Career, teaching K-12 Physical Education, Middle and High School Weight Training and Wood Shop. Here at Tex Hill I teach 8th grade US History along with coaching 7th grade Football, 8th grade Basketball and 7th grade Soccer.
I guess I'm not new to Texas anymore, as my wife and I moved our family here eight years ago to continue our careers in Education. We have two children, both graduates from Johnson High School. Our daughter Mackenzie is attending Texas State this year, majoring in Music Education. As a family we love to vacation with Disney, take road trips to see friends and my wife and I work on our YouTube channel and travel agency business when we're not at school.
I was born on Pearl Harbor day, December 7th, 1977 in Wheeling West Virginia and lived there until I was 2 1/2 years old. My family moved to Portland, Oregon after my Grandfather passed away to fulfill his dream of living in the Northwest.
My wife and I met in 1996 and it was love at first site. After getting to know each other and our families we got married August 7th, 1999. Our son Trace was born October 29th, 2000 and our daughter Mackenzie came 13 months and a day later on November 30, 2001.
