Calvin Wright is in his eleventh year of teaching and coaching. He graduated from Comfort High School in 2002 where he was a two time all district baseball player for a Bobcat team that consistently made deep playoff runs. Afterward, he attended Tarleton State University in which he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Studies in 2007. In 2012, he graduated with a Master's degree in Educational Administration with Principal Certification from Tarleton State University.
His coaching career began in 2007 in which he was the Head Softball Coach as well as Assistant Volleyball and Basketball Coach at Graford ISD. He spent two years in Graford in which the Lady Rabbits made two playoff appearances and won the first softball playoff series in the program's history in 2009. He spent the next four school year's coaching at Itasca ISD where he was the Head Softball Coach, along with stints as the defensive coordinator and offensive line coach for the football team, assistant basketball coach and assistant cross country coach. The Lady Wampus Cat Softball team had three straight seasons of being the undefeated district champions as well as making several deep runs in the playoffs including a Regional Finals appearance in 2011 and a Regional Semi-Finals appearance in 2012.
Coach Wright is very excited about the coming school year as a World Geography Teacher, Volleyball Coach and Softball Coach! He is very passionate about what he does and finds tremendous purpose and impact in his profession. Being a teacher and a coach has a direct impact on hundreds of other lives every single year and that is something that Coach Wright cherishes. He seems tremendous similarities between work in the classroom and being a part of a team on the athletic field to everyday life and obstacles the students will face in their future. When taught to handle issues in the correct manner, they will be more likely to experience success in the future. The hardest part about being a teacher and a coach for Coach Wright is that a lot of times the educator doesn't realize the impact they make until years later down the road when they hear from an old student which is so rewarding.
Coach Wright is supported by four lovely ladies in his life: Stephanie, who is a property manager in Fort Worth, Lexi (7) who is in 2nd grade at Boyd Elementary in Boyd, Texas and Sunday (4) (who will be five in February, 2018) who also attends daycare in Boyd. The youngest daughter is named Remi (1) who attends daycare with Sunny. In his free time he enjoys watching sports, spending time with his family, and hanging out with his friends.
