Padriac McGinnis is the new head football coach at Hightower High School (HHS). McGinnis previously served as an assistant coach for six years at HHS and has 11 years total experience. He also played college and professional arena football.
Fort Bend ISD Athletic Director Philip O’Neal believes the right person for the job rose to the top during the interview process.
“Coach McGinnis surfaced during the interview process as the best person to continue the strong tradition of winning football at Hightower High School,” O’Neal said. “He began leaving his mark on this program in 2006 as an assistant coach, and he has established a positive rapport with his student athletes, as well as gaining respect in the community.”
McGinnis is thankful for the opportunity and is looking forward to his new role. “It is my top priority to promote the students not only as athletes, but also to support them in the classroom,” McGinnis said. “It is also my goal to make Hightower a household name as a powerhouse in all sports. This will not be an easy task, but with the support of the school, students and community, I am confident that this will be accomplished sooner rather than later.”
