Singler Named Head Varsity Baseball Coach
MUSKOGEE, Okla. - Muskogee Public Schools named John Singler head varsity baseball coach following the approval by the Board of Education during Tuesday’s special meeting.
Singler, a native of Muskogee, is a 2011 graduate of MHS and takes the reins following six seasons as an assistant coach including the last five as the head varsity assistant coach.
“I am excited for the opportunity to rebuild and turn the program around,” explained Singler. “I am grateful that Muskogee Public Schools has given me the opportunity to change the program for the better.”
Singler was a member of the 2009 State Tournament baseball team and was named First Team All-Conference as a junior and senior in 2010 and 2011. He continued his playing career at the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas and earned All-Conference honors in 2015. He graduated in 2016 from the University of the Ozarks and returned to the district that Fall.
“My vision for the program is to increase the numbers in the program and to develop more pitchers,” said Singler. “This will allow us to compete at a high level every year. My plan is to reach out and develop student athletes at a younger age. I also plan on challenging student athletes by playing tougher competition earlier in their playing career.”
A Pre-AP Biology and Anatomy & Physiology teacher at MHS, Singler began his coaching career as the head junior high baseball coach. He also coached ninth grade football for his first five years at Muskogee.
