Lions News · Track Nation – Coach Marquis Stimpson


Coach Marquis Stimpson has truly been grinding throughout the track season. With determination, dedication, and discipline, he has finally earned what he has been longing for, which is a state championship title. Over the past several years, Coach Stimpson has fallen short to the state title, by finishing as a state runner-up. That wasn’t good enough for him, so he went back to the blueprint to refine and revise a new game plan, along with his assistant coaches. Despite some obstacles that tried to prevent Coach Stimpson from accomplishing his dream this season, he persevered. He walked away with the UIL Conference 3A District and Area titles, and finished as Runner-up at the Regional meet. However, the season wasn’t complete until he brought back the UIL 3A State Conference Title, and he did just that, making history for Life School and the athletic department. Outstanding job to Coach Stimpson, his coaching staff, and his athletes.
