Gerlich is one of eight athletic administrators across the state to receive the regional award. THSADA selects the annual recipients based on their dedicated service, leadership, and special contributions to their local and regional levels of interscholastic athletic administration.
“Bryan has established himself as a high-level athletic administrator as evident by his selection as the Region 1 Athletic Administrator of the Year and his service on the Athletic Committee of the THSADA,” said Rusty Dowling, Executive Director of the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association.
Gerlich joined the Frenship family as the director of athletics in 2022 with an extensive background in coaching, athletics administration, and strong relationships across the state. Under his leadership, students and coaches continue to see success at the local, regional, and state level. Gerlich has also been instrumental in guiding the Frenship Athletics Department through an unprecedented time as Frenship prepares to expand to a fourth middle school in the fall of 2023 and second high school in the fall of 2025.
“I was surprised and very humbled when I heard I received this recognition,” said Gerlich. “But I really can’t take credit for the incredible achievements our athletic programs are seeing. We have great kids, parents, coaches and support from our administrators and school board members who make our athletic program successful.”
Gerlich and the other seven regional recipients will be honored at the THSADA-PBK Sports Hall of Honor celebration on June 11th in Round Rock.
