The goal is to promote lifelong fitness, provide opportunities for growth and good sportsmanship, show the benefits of dedication, hard work, and continuous practice, and for students to simply have fun.
Mullen High School offers 26 state-sanctioned sports for Mustangs boys and girls, and are open to all participants. We promote respect for adults, fellow team members and opponents at all times on and off the competitive arena.
For those who aspire to be serious athletes, Mullen also offers some of the finest coaches and most-competitive interscholastic teams in Colorado in its upper classifications.
Hank is in his 22nd year at Mullen. Prior to arriving, Hank taught and coached at Little Rock Catholic High School in Arkansas for six years and Dallas Jesuit in Texas for seven and one-half. At Mullen, Hank taught English and coached football for 14 years before transitioning into an administrative role. He has worked in the Athletic Department as Dean of Athletic Renewal, Assistant Athletic Director, Interim Athletic Director and currently as Associate Athletic Director. Hank and wife Pam have two children, both Mullen grads, Lindsay ('07) and Patrick ('04). Lindsay is the Associate Director of Admissions and Retention at Mullen. Patrick and wife Heather both work for the NHL's San Jose Sharks -- Patrick is the Director of Integrated Marketing and Heather the Foundation Director. They are parents to daughters Graysen Rhea (3) and Quinn Everly (1).
