We are happy to announce our new football director Eric Siemer!
Coach Eric Siemer grew up in Covington and
graduated from Holmes High School. After High School, Eric obtained a Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Kentucky University in Emergency Medical Care. Using his degree, he serves as the EMS Captain for the EMS division of a local fire department. His wife Candice, supports both of their boys in various sports throughout the year. Jack and Kellen, 5 and 11 years old respectively, play both football and basketball for TME.
Eric has been an Eagle since 2017. He has helped coach football and has been a Head Basketball coach for the past three years. Eric has excellent leadership skills and we are very excited to see what visions he has for our organization.
Eric has coached many sports but his passion is for the game of football. He started football with the Bengal Tigers and continued football with Holmes middle school and high school. After 4 years of being an assistant coach to Matt Luken and serving a year of equipment manager, he has been offered and excited to take on the role of the football Director for the Taylor Mill Organization. “I feel kids can benefit so much from the game of football and develop characteristics such as discipline, dedication, hard work, leadership, accountability, sacrifice and teamwork.”
Over the last few years Eric is grateful for the friendships he has created with other coaches and parents of the organization. Coach Shawn Murphy was one of his closest friends. “I value Shawn’s dedication to not only this organization but to all the kids. He was not only a coach to these kids but a mentor! I hope to help facilitate an environment where all of our players can value their coach as ours did towards Shawn.”
As director his goal is to provide a safe environment for our TME family and teach the kids the basic fundamentals of the game.
