John Cherry

My name is John Cherry I am the Athletic Director, Head Football, Head Track, and P.E. Coach. Growing up in Gordon, Texas Kimberly and I knew we wanted a small town to raise Faith Ann in. Faith Ann is 3 years old, full of energy, and very loving. If you come to Athletic events she can be spotted running around and keeping the fans on their toes. Rochelle is an amazing community that is more like a family. I played sixman football in high school for Gordon ISD following my senior year I competed in the CanAm Bowl for Team USA this game is played in Canada every year. My First year of college I went to Ranger Junior College and was a part of the baseball team. My second year of college I transferred to Tarleton State University where I received my Bachelors in Science. I started my coaching career as defensive coordinator with Stephenville Faith where we won 4 state championships in a row and build a dynasty in private school football. After leaving Stephenville I became the Offensive Coordinator for Cedar Park Summit losing in the state semi-finals by 4 points to the eventual state champ. The next season I was named Athletic director and head football coach of Calvert ISD we went 12-1 beating the UIL D1 state champion during the regular season and losing in the state quarterfinals to the eventual UIL D2 state champions. The following two seasons I spent in Richland Springs. As a coaching staff we are excited for what we are building here in Rochelle and expected a very bright future built through hard work and family atmosphere. #ChooseRochelle
