— Staff Report

From Millsap ISD press release


Continuing a productive path in his coaching and teaching career that has taken him from the Texas Gulf area to Parker County via points in between, Ed Padalecki has accepted a position at Millsap ISD as head baseball coach. 

Coach Padalecki, who will also perform assistant coaching duties for the Millsap football program, comes to Bulldog land from Hutto High School, where he served as a varsity baseball assistant and head coach for the junior varsity. He was also a varsity assistant football coach for the past two seasons.  

Coach Padalecki takes over the reins of the baseball program from Coach Brad Littlefield, who will serve as head coach for the Millsap ISD golf program.

Athletic Director Ron Berry, expressed his enthusiasm for coach Padalecki’s selection.  

“It is exciting for [Millsap ISD] to attract someone of Coach Padalecki’s background and quality for the baseball program,” Berry said. “I am confident Coach Padalecki will do an excellent job.” 

Coach Padalecki began his teaching and coaching career at Bloomington High School (northwest of Port Lavaca), before coming to the Metroplex to accept teaching and coaching positions at the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw school district. 

He taught middle school, coached junior varsity baseball and was also a varsity football assistant for the Saginaw Rough Riders program. 

Padalecki went to Hutto High School in 2012.

In addition to coaching high school baseball, Coach Padalecki has provided mentoring as a summer baseball coach at Texas Christian University since 2010. He took on a similar role in the summer program for Texas A&M University baseball in 2012. 

He continues to serve both schools each summer. 

Coach Padalecki is excited about the opportunity to join the Millsap ISD family.

“We will continue to build upon the successes from years past and create new traditions,” Padalecki said. “We will work very hard to represent Millsap athletics in a positive manner, both on and off the field. 

“I look forward to helping each player develop their baseball and football skills to achieve team and individual goals.  I am very excited to work with our coaches, players, and parents to achieve a successful baseball and football program.”
