Hi, I am presently the counselor for Era ISD. Before that, I coached and taught U.S. History. Prior to coming to Era, I was at Lindsay for eight years, where I served as the athletic director and head football coach. Before that, I was the head football coach in Thrall, Texas, which is just outside of Austin.       

I graduated from Era High School and attended Cooke County Junior College, North Texas State University, University of Texas and received my Bachelor's degree from the University of North Texas. After many years of coaching, I went back to college to get my master's degree in counseling and development.       

My wife's name is Dora and she is the Executive Director of CASA.  We have three daughters. Joni Anderle(my oldest) graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in elementary education.
