Successful Skills & Drills - Cynthia Herrera, Stamford HS
I was born and raised in Abilene, TX, graduating from Abilene High School. After completing high school, I continued my academic and athletic career at the JUCO level, then later transferring to the D3 level. I then finished my academics at McMurry University, graduating with a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology in 2017. Shortly after graduating, I landed my first teaching/coaching job in Stamford, Tx, where I serve as the Head Softball Coach. I have a 15 mo old baby boy, who is my pride and joy.
Over the last 3 seasons as the head softball coach, I successfully managed to lead the Lady Bulldogs to a 64-13-1 overall record, making this the first, two undefeated district seasons in 17 years. During this time, we were able to obtain 2 bi-district playoff titles, 2 area playoff titles, 1 regional-quarterfinal title, 1 semifinal title, 1 regional final title, and a State Title in 2021, making it the first in school history. I was awarded the Region 1 District 7 2-A Coach of the Year for the 2021 season.
As I continue in my profession, I hope to leave a legacy of commitment, hard work and grace to each player that I coach. I thank the Lord for my professional accomplishments, but most importantly for blessing me with my son, Tucker.
