Jamie Smith, Defensive Coordinator
I was born in July 6, 1975 in Brenham, Texas. I attended school at Burton I.S.D. from kindergarten to graduation. After High school I attended college and graduated from Blinn College and Texas A&M University. I then decided that I wanted to pursue a career in teaching and coaching so I majored in Kinesiology/Secondary Education and chose History as a second teaching field.
My first coaching/teaching job was in Somerville, where I was an assistant football, assistant basketball, and Jr.High track coach. After three years in Somerville, I spent four years there as a assistant basketball coach and two years as head basketball coach, as well as coaching everything from cross country to track.
My wife Georgann and I live near Burton. We have two sons, C.J. and Michael. C.J. attends Burton Elementary and loves it. They both enjoy coming to games and supporting the Panthers!
I am very excited about coaching in Burton; we receive a great deal of support from the community and have a hard-working group of athletes with outstanding leadership. These young men are enthusiastic, disciplined, and dedicated to each and our coaching staffs. I expect this to help them succeed in sports, in the classroom, and in life.
