New Channelview High School Head Baseball Coach John Moore has found his way back home.
The 1998 alumnus and standout athlete for the Falcon football and baseball team served as a varsity assistant at CHS from 2004-2009 before becoming the first head coach at Bastrop ISD’s Cedar Creek High School in 2010. Moore established himself as a winning coach, guiding his teams to the playoffs the past three years, which included a state-ranked squad last year.
Moore was happy as coach of Cedar Creek and had thoughts of a long-term career in Central Texas. However, the opportunity he had dreamed about presented itself – a chance to lead the Channelview Falcons baseball team.
“We built a great program from the ground up at Cedar Creek and we were really hitting our stride,” Moore said. I could have stayed there for a long time, but then I heard about the opening here in Channelview. It was the only job that could make me turn my head. After giving it a lot of thought, I knew my heart was leading me back home.”
With his family still living in the Channelview area, Moore has remained connected with the community and his alma mater.
