Mr. Donovan King


My name is Coach King, I am entering my first year as the  Defensive Coordinator and PE teacher here at COHS.  I am entering my 8th year coaching and teaching. I am coming to Coldspring HS from New Diana, where I was the Defensive Coordinator and I  taught Government/Economics. I have made also coaching stops Fort Bend Ridge Point HS, and East Bernard HS.  I am truly grateful for the opportunity to join a district with such rich tradition and be able to pour into the lives of the young men and women here on campus.   

Originally, I am from a small community very similar to this one in Altair, TX.  I graduated from Rice Consolidated.  I received a scholarship to play football at Texas State University where I was a 4 year lettermen, all conference, and a team caption.  I received a Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a minor in Excercise Sports Science.  I received a Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling from Texas Tech University.  I received my Principal Certification and training from Lamar University. Prior to entering education, I spent three years as a Mental Health Associate at a residential treatment facility and three years as a Career Counselor at Job Corps in San Marcos.  Although those were very fulfilling jobs, I made the transition from counseling to education to carry out a greater calling.  Life's adversity has placed me in a situation to be able to mentor young men, and I'm just trying to walk in my purpose.
