Kenny Matthews

Kenny Matthews

Head Coach – Kenny Matthews

A graduate of Bowie High School, Coach Matthews played for THSBCA Hall of Fame inductee Rudy Alvarez. During his time in college Coach Matthews was fortunate to play baseball at Blinn Junior College and Texas Tech University.

Coaching as a career began for Coach Matthews at Texas Tech where he served one year as an undergraduate assistant. Upon returning to Austin, Cedar Creek High School provided Coach Matthew’s start in coaching high school baseball. Anderson High School brought Coach Matthews to this program in 2017.

Coach Matthew’s mission is to provide every student athlete in the baseball program with a great high school experience. All athletes are to become productive citizens by learning respect, sportsmanship, enthusiasm, values, pride, dedication, loyalty, trust, and unity. Coach strives to make the program “structured, energetic, student athlete centered and enjoyable, as the game of baseball should be”.

Varsity Coach – Ron Davis

Beginning his teaching career at College Station Middle School, Coach Davis affirmed his enjoyment of coaching as he worked with football, basketball, and track. While assisting in an SBS classroom he discovered his passion for working with special education students. Soon he was able to complete his degree on a scholarship to Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches.

Upon completing his degree, Coach Davis was hired by AISD to work at Bedichek Middle School. In 2006 he transferred to Anderson High School pursuing coaching at the high school level. He has served football, softball and, in 2016, he joined baseball as the JV2 coach. He greatly values his relationships with his students, players and their families.

JoBeth, who also works at Anderson, and Coach Davis have a daughter, Lillie, who is the light of their lives. When not coaching, he can be found at the barn watching Lillie ride. They have two dogs and a bunny, but Lillie recently announced that their family won’t be complete until he buys her a horse! On the spectator sports front, Coach Davis is partial to Texas A&M.


Drew Nichols

Drew Nichols

JV1 Coach – Drew Nichols

When considering why he pursued coaching and teaching, Coach Nichols is quickly reminded of his father, who you might have seen around the ball field watching.  Mike Nichols chose to take a job selling cars to support his family instead of finishing his degree and entering teaching and coaching himself.  Throughout Coach Nichol’s youth, his father encouraged him in athletics and academics; he experienced success at both and that was here at our own Anderson!  Following his father’s example, Coach Nichols can be seen encouraging the current Anderson student-athletes to pursue excellence on the field and in the classroom.

Born in Wichita, Kansas, Coach Nichols moved to Austin as a youth and attended schools you are familiar with: Hill and Davis Elementary, Murchison Middle School and Anderson High School.  He was asked to attend Trinity University in San Antonio to play football, which he did.  He earned his bachelor degree in History and Special Education from Texas State University.  Currently he is completing a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership at the University of North Texas.  In addition to coaching our JV 1 baseball team, Coach Nichols leads JV basketball.

November through May, Coach Nichols can be found at Anderson six days a week coaching.  When he does have free time he enjoys experiencing Austin.  He likes golfing, kayaking and hiking Austin’s greenbelts with his two dogs.  During the summer he tackles home improvement projects and heads to the lake;  he hopes to be the proud owner of a boat before too long.
