Welcome to Coach Sandlin's Page

I am beginning my thirteen year at Greenback. My roots are in Kentucky where I earned my BS (Bachelor of Science) from University of Campbellsville with majors in Physical Education and Church Recreation and minors in Coaching and Health Education. Following graduation my wife (Marty) and son (Micah) moved to Fort Worth, TX were I earned my M.R.E. (Masters of Religious Education) with an emphasis in church recreation form Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. After serving in the full time ministry in Baton Rouge, LA (where our son David was born), Morristown, and Maryville, TN for about 18 years I accepted an elementary Physical Education teaching position at Greenback.  While teaching middle school Physical Education I earned my E.D.s. (Education Specialist) with an emphasis in administration degree form Lincoln Memorial University in Harrgate, TN. Along with teaching high school Physical Education and Wellness I serve as our Assistant Athletic Director. I know it's not popular in Tennessee, but am a University of Kentucky fan and enjoy all kinds of sports and hobbies.
