Recognized as being a top player development coach and instructor at the Tier I level, Greg was selected by USA Hockey and Texas Amateur Hockey Association to take the reigns of Team Southwest for high school hockey’s prestigious Chicago Showcase.  Under his direction, Team Southwest moved up the ladder to reach play in the same divisions as Michigan, Minnesota and Massachusetts - a major accomplishment for Texas High School Hockey.  He also led the Coppell Cowboys to the Rocky Mountain District High School Championship, another first for Texas High School Hockey.

From 2004 to present, Greg has been selected by USA Hockey to be a Coach/Evaluator at the Rocky Mountain District Player Development Camps.  He has also been a Coach/Evaluator for the USA Hockey 14U and 15U National Select Festivals from 2008 to present.

In addition to his coaching accomplishments on the ice, Greg has a Masters of Education Degree in Exercise Physiology.  With this, Greg has worked with the Dallas Stars Rookie Camp of the NHL where he helped Strength and Conditioning Coach JJ McQueen with the off ice program.  Greg has his Masters Level 5 Certification and has also been a presenter for the USA Hockey Coaching Education Program where he presented Year Round Off Ice Conditioning for Hockey for Level 4 coaches. 

In 2008 Greg moved to Colorado to coach the 18U AAA team for the Pikes Peak Miners Program.  He led that team to a #12 National Ranking, Colorado State Championship and Rocky Mountain District Runners Up.  Most importantly, Greg worked to move 9 of his players from that team into Junior programs.  The 2012/2013 season will be Greg's 5th  at the helm of the 18U Miners.

Greg is passionate about player development, character and accountability both on and off the ice.  He works diligently with junior programs and colleges on his players behalf and continues his role as coach and mentor far beyond the season for their continued success and benefit.

Greg and his wife, Allison, live in Monument, Colorado with their 2 beloved Australian Shepherds.
