SHREVEPORT - Jeremy Winzer enters his first year as the Ladies assistant coach. Winzer will aid in strength and conditioning, having served as a group fitness trainer. He has worked with athletes from Louisiana Tech, Mississippi College, Central Arkansas and Texas Wesleyan.

Ten of the 12 athletes under Winzer’s instruction finished in the top five percent of their schools and were rated as some of the physically prepared by their coaches.

During the spring of 2012, Winzer helped coach the track and field team at Ruston Junior High School, where he worked as a Teacher’s Assistant. At RJHS, he coached an 8th-grade javelin thrower that threw 178 feet, shattering the previous record held by now-All-American thrower Larry Jones.

Winzer coached at West Ouachita during the spring and fall of 2011 and winter of 2012 where he was the track, cross country, and soccer coach. During his time there, he led the track team to District & Regional Track meets (runners-up), where he also coached the fastest quarter-miler in the state. He helped lead the cross country team to its highest finish in school history (11th) after finishing 23rd (out of 24 teams) for four consecutive years. He also assisted in helping the boys’ soccer program go from a 0-11 record to a 9-7-3 record to mark the program’s first ever winning season and its first playoff appearance. He also coached a U17 boys Division I club soccer team during the spring of 2011.

Winzer’s coaching career started at Ruston High School, being a vocal point in the coaching staff over both boys and girls. He was responsible for the strength and conditioning, goal-keeping training, and organization of practice sessions. He was there for three seasons, recording a combined record of 38-21-2 from 2008-2009 and 2010-2011. He earned Coach of the Year awards three consecutive seasons, three district runners-up, three tournament wins, two Division I signees, one Division II signee, and 14 academic all-state recipients.

Prior to entering Louisiana Tech University, he was a member of the track, cross country, and soccer teams, lettering and earning all-district, all-northeast, claiming a state title in track and field, and was ranked sixth in the state by three-mile time in cross country as a junior with all classifications combined. He was also a three-year member of the Shreveport United Soccer Club.
