Head Coach Blake Janek

My name is Blake Janek. I am from Valley Mills, Texas. I graduated high school in 2014 and went onto McMurry University. In college I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to compete athletically. I ran cross country and track until injuries decided for me that I would hang up the spikes. To my surprise, my coach at the time suggested I learn to throw the javelin. This would be the piece of the puzzle that allowed me to accel in the world of track. I was fortunate enough to qualify for a national championship meet and find ample success. After college, I worked for my family construction company until I finally realized that I was meant to share my gifts rather than dig in a ditch. That led me to my first job at Abbott High School where I assisted with Cross Country, Football, and Baseball and was the Head Basketball and Track coach. As a first year coach, I had a beautiful journey and was blessed to coach the 1A 800-meter men’s State Champion and have a hand in the 1A 300-meter hurdle girls State Champion, and the 1A 800-meter girls 4th place finisher. Success is a part of athletics that I expect nothing less of achieving. I am more than excited to get going with your student-athletes and am even more excited to be an integral part in helping them find success on the course, in the classroom, and in future life endeavors. 

Assistant Coach Kevin Spruill

I am a native of Georgetown, TX where I attended Georgetown HS and competed in football, basketball, and track. I am a graduate of Texas State University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Sports Science. I am a self professed fitness junkie who loves working out and running in my free time. A few of my other interests include a love to travel and spend time outdoors with my friends and family. I even spent a few years competing in races around the area such as the Austin Half Marathon (2), Longhorn Run 10K (2), Dallas Y Turkey Trot (2), and the Cap10K (5 years). 
My first 10 years in education I coached football, basketball, soccer, & track at Forbes MS in Georgetown. I was the head track coach at Forbes where we captured the school’s first ever District Championship. My last 3 years I have spent at Georgetown HS as a Girls Basketball Varsity Assistant, Assistant Varsity Track, and was responsible for running our Summer Strength & Conditioning program for all non-football athletes. I taught AP Human Geography & World Geography while coaching at GHS. Last year was a very successful year at Georgetown in Track & Field. All levels of the Georgetown track program, boys & girls, were crowned 2019 District Champions. I look forward to the opportunity to work with all of the students, athletes, staff, and community of Lake Travis.
