John Hirst

Head Basketball Coach - PE

Welcome to Reagan High School, the best high school in all of San Antonio!!  I am priviledged to start my 11th year as the head basketball coach here at Reagan.  In the 10 years we have been at Reagan, we have been blessed to have a won/loss record of 204-106, winning four district championships and placing 16 graduates in college basketball programs!  The quality of student-athlete that we have had the opportunity to work with is second to none, and nothing is better than when our former guys come back from college to check and see how the team/program are doing.

This is my 28th year of teaching, with stops at Harlingen, McAllen, Los Fresnos, San Antonio Clark, and San Antonio Stevens.  The son of parents who both were educators, I am married 27 years to my wife Christie, and have two sons - Jordan and Jacob.  Both are graduates of Reagan High School.  In addition to coaching basketball, I proudly serve as a Physical Education teacher.

We are very excited for the 2020-21 school year, so if you have any questions about our program - please don't hesitate to contact me.  I am easiest to contact via email -

I am a graduate of Texas Tech University and have a Masters from Grand Canyon University.
