Mr. Russell Ferrell

Head Baseball Coach - US History Teacher

Hello my name is Russell Ferrell. I teach US History at Ball High along with being the Head Baseball Coach for the Tors. Galveston is a great community that supports their kids, which is so beneficial. I have worked in Galveston since 2011 and have seen consistent improvement throughout the district in so many ways. Our baseball program has continued to shine (with a district championship in 2017) and hopefully will always be a team worth watching. I have a wife and 2 little kids that I love spending time with at the beach or local parks, or just at the house. I am always following the Astros and am really excited about their future. I am a 1992 graduate of Sam Houston State – which is a college where both my parents graduated, and so did my younger brother. I also earned my Masters in Health and Human Performance in 2015 from the University of Houston at Clear Lake.
