All Regional Pitcher Jerry Courtney joins Brook Hill team as head baseball coach
Officials with The Brook Hill School are thrilled to announce Jerry Courtney has been hired to be the private school’s new head baseball coach.
Courtney has been the Head Baseball Coach at Tyler All Saints for the past 17 years and is recognized across East Texas as one of the top baseball coaches in the state.
Courtney began his journey as a high school baseball player at Humble High School before going on to play baseball in junior college for two years at Florida College.
He continued his collegiate career for two years at Florida International University where he was selected as All-Regional Pitcher in 2000. Courtney returned to be the pitching coach at Florida College in 2002 before beginning his stint at Tyler All Saints.
While at All Saints from 2003-2019, Courtney’s teams have an overall record of 305-160. During the 17 year tenure, Courtney led his squads to 11 District Championships, eight Area Championships, five State Final Fours, and claimed the State Championship in 2009.
Dawkins notes that hiring someone of Courtney’s experience, success, and reputation will elevate the Brook Hill baseball program to a championship level.
“The hiring of Jerry Courtney allows us the opportunity to compete for championships year in and year out. Jerry is known to be an outstanding teacher of the game, motivates his players to reach their potential, and brings a new focus to the table that will inspire our players to reach new heights. This is a great opportunity for our school and an awesome opportunity for our student athletes who participate in baseball to learn, play, and be mentored by one of the best coaches in the state.”
Courtney will immediately begin getting to know his prospective players, conducting summer workouts, and working with both pitchers and hitters. Courtney will also advise the school’s leadership on major improvements to our current baseball field, which will be announced soon.
Courtney has been married to his wife Kristen for 17 years, who will also work at Brook Hill. The couple have three children
“This is an exciting time for Brook Hill and our Guard Baseball Program, and we look forward to Jerry Courtney leading our young men on the diamond for years to come,” Dawkins said.
