Whether it’s dribbling in basketball, spiking in volleyball, sprinting in track, tackling in football, setting in tennis, ect… Athletic Director Jerod Womack is first in line to support the Yellow Jackets and Honeybees. Sports teaches valuable life lessons such as teamwork, working with others, and the daily grind of being part of a program which benefits each athlete as they live life after athletics.

  “Life is not all about athletics but athletics is all about life,” Womack said.

   Jerod Womack began his football career playing at Midland Christian High School which led to his first stint at Greenville College where he then transferred to Mary Hardin Baylor for the rest of his college days.

   Womack took his first coaching job as a graduate assistant at TCU. After that, Womack went to the high school ranks as a coach at Salado High School. Next, he coached at Brownwood for a year and  then at Abilene Cooper for nine. Later, Womack was offered his first head football/Athletic Director position at Jim Ned; he held that position for three years.

  Lastly, Womack moved to Stephenville because he believes it’s a great place to raise a family and wanted his children to grow up in this environment. He is now the Athletic Director for the Yellow Jackets and Honeybees.

  “Stephenville is special place,” Womack said. “A town that is rich in athletic tradition. It is awesome to work with our student body and athletes on a daily basis. I have really enjoyed getting to know our student body and community. This place excels because of the support the schools get from parents and organizations. The traditions and past success set the bar high for our current and future athletes.”  

   There are many fulfilling aspects when working with student athletes, but one of the most important to Womack is guiding students and being able to watch these kids succeed.

   “The most rewarding part of being an athletic director is when I see our coaches and kids accomplish goals that were earned by hard work and doing the small things right that got them to the point of success,” Womack said.

  Along with being an impactful athletic director, Womack also values family.

  “I can look back on my life, and I remember the moment my first son was born,” Womack said. “It was a great moment for me and my wife, and I will never forget the way I instantly felt holding my son, Hudson. I had the same feeling each time one of our children were born.”

  Womack has several people he looks up to through athletics and in his personal life.

  “One of the biggest role models in my life is my wife Mindi,” Womack said. “The way she shows our five kids on a daily basis that anything is possible if you work hard and be kind.”

  In sports, as well as your personal lives, Womack thinks who you keep close to you is important.

   “I believe the more you surround yourself with great people the better you will make yourself as a person,” Womack said.

  Overall, Womack is honored to be here working with our student athletes as well as the student body.

“I would just like to say how happy and privileged I feel to be apart of Stephenville ISD,” Womack said. “I look forward to continuing to form great relationships with not only our student athletes, but with every student that steps foot on our campus.  Feel free to stop by my office any time and say hello. Go Jackets! Go Honey Bees!”
