The Comal Independent School District is proud to welcome Mr. J.D. Zimmerhanzel as its newest athletic coordinator and head football coach. Zimmerhanzel will join the Davenport High School (DHS) faculty, leading the Wolfpack on new turf this fall.
Zimmerhanzel comes to DHS from Samuel V. Champion High School (CHS) in Boerne ISD where he served as varsity football offensive coordinator, head varsity boys and girls track coach, assistant varsity baseball coach and a social studies, health and P.E. teacher. Prior to that, he was at Smithville High School for seven years where he served in various coaching positions. In addition, he taught world geography and economics.
“We are very excited about Coach Zimmerhanzel joining the Davenport Pack,” says Matthew DeLoach, principal of DHS. “We had a number of quality coaches apply for the position, but Coach Zimmerhanzel’s past accomplishments, love for the game and students, and hunger for excellence, caused him to stand out. We are looking forward to seeing the great things he accomplishes, not only on the football field, but with the entire athletic program at Davenport.”
Over the past 15 years of coaching, Zimmerhanzel has received many accolades. As offensive coordinator at CHS, he helped lead the Chargers to two district finals, two regional finals and one state semi-final. He holds an overall record of 63-23 and an average of 43.65 points per game. In addition, Zimmerhanzel has 10 district titles, one regional title and two individual state champions as head track coach.
