A new face at White House High School for 2015 is a former college kicker who spent two years coaching in Florida before taking an opportunity to move to White House.
Applying for an open position at WHHS, Coach Evan Muldoon spoke with head coach Jeff Porter the next day and eventually moved into a new role with the White House football program. He will be coaching kickers, punters and special teams returners along with wide receivers and defensive backs.
Muldoon is a 2009 graduate of Grand Valley State in Michigan with undergraduate degree in history and social studies, and he then completed his Masters of Educational Studies at the University of Michigan in 2011. His first coaching position was for two seasons at one of Florida’s largest high schools, Fort Pierce, where the talent level for division one athletes was very high. He coached wide receivers and special teams.
He will be teaching English III at White House High School.
At Grantville High School, Muldoon was an all-state, all-area and all-conference kicker before moving to Grand Rapids Community College and setting records for most field goals in a game and finishing second in the nation in scoring. However, injury slowed his college career as he transferred to Grand Valley State.
He comes to White House with an impressive resume, noting the community support in White House rivals that of his hometown in Michigan. His first impression of the White House program was the dedication to discipline and organization in the program, something he wishes to contribute in 2015.
White House has a huge track record of successful kickers with numerous special teams award winners in District 9-AA and Region 4-3A for placekicker, and last year set records for kickoff returns in the regular season.
