Forsan’s Coach Seth Johnson was named the 2017 Region 1 Class AA Coach of the Year at the Texas Tennis Coaches’ Association annual coaching clinic and conference. The award was presented by Patrick McEnroe, brother of retired tennis pro John McEnroe, during the awards banquet Friday night in Marble Falls. Johnson has served as Forsan’s head tennis coach for five years during which the UIL tennis players and Team Tennis players have made consistent trips to the Regional Tennis tournaments and several have made it to State. In April, the mixed doubles team of Freeman and Schafer won the bronze medal at the state tournament.
Johnson said, “I’ve been blessed to have an amazing wife to support me in everything I do, awesome kids to coach who make it look like I know what I’m talking about, and the best school in the state to represent!”
Forsan ISD is proud of Coach Johnson and talented students who choose to play tennis. The tennis parents and several local parents have been wonderful to support this program with countless hours of service. Coach Lloyd Vedder serves as the tennis program’s assistant coach.
