Courtney tabbed as new Brook Hill baseball coach


BULLARD — Working as the head baseball coach at All Saints Episcopal School in Tyler for the past 17 seasons, Jerry Courtney racked up some eye-popping accomplishments.

He will be looking to continue those winning ways a little farther south as he was named Thursday as the new head baseball coach at The Brook Hill School.

While piloting the Trojans, Courtney's squads went 305-160 and won 11 district titles, eight area championships, five state Final Fours berths and one state championship.

The hiring of Jerry Courtney to be our Head Baseball Coach allows us to the opportunity to compete for championships year in and year out,” Brook Hill athletic director Wally Dawkins said in a press release. “Jerry is known to be an outstanding teacher of the game, motivates his players to reach their potential, and brings a new focus to the table that will inspire our players to reach new heights. This is a great opportunity for our school and an awesome opportunity for our student athletes who participate in baseball to learn, play, and be mentored by one of the best coaches in the state."

Courtney will be involved in the school's summer workout program, which will aid him in getting familiar with the Guard players. He will also advise Brook Hill leadership on major improvements to the school's baseball field.

Courtney has been married to his wife Kristen, who will also work at Brook Hill, for 17 years,. The Courtney’s have three children; a son Calvi who will be attending 7th grade, and daughters Charlotte and Grace who are entering 3rd grade.

This is an exciting time for Brook Hill and our Guard Baseball Program, and we look forward to Jerry Courtney leading our young men on the diamond for years to come,” Dawkins said.
