Wilson named Athletic Director
Wilson Named Athletic Director
Posted on 1800/01/01

      wilsonHobbs High School assistant principal Brenda Wilson was promoted to athletic director on Thursday – replacing Greg Haston who resigned Jan. 2.
     Citing her background in both sports and administration, HMS Supt. TJ Parks said Wilson was a perfect fit for the position.
    “Number one, Brenda is passionate about kids,” Parks said. “Number two, she loves athletics and number three, she’s a Hobbs Eagle through and through.”

    “It’s my dream job,” Wilson said after she accepted the position on Thursday afternoon. “There’s no other word for it. This is a job I’ve dreamed of for a very long time. I love Hobbs and I wouldn’t want to be any other place. I’m proud to be an Eagle.”

      Wilson grew up in Melrose where she was involved in athletics from a young age. After lettering in track, volleyball and basketball at the high school level, Wilson won a scholarship to Eastern New Mexico University and played four years of collegiate volleyball.

     She married a fellow athlete – Quintin Wilson – and together the two moved to Eunice where they each taught at the high school level and coached.

   In 2000 the family relocated to Hobbs. Wilson was hired to teach history at Hobbs High School and lead the volleyball team as head coach. When she was named an assistant HHS vice principal in 2007, she resigned the coaching job but remained a fixture at HHS athletic events.

    Her twin sons played football and ran track at the time. More recently, Wilson’s daughter, Halli, now a HHS senior, was a volleyball player and is on the track team.

    “My husband and I both coached so my kids grew up in a gym and, quite honestly, I really wouldn’t want them anywhere else. They’ve met a lot of wonderful people and had great experiences as gym rats,” Wilson said.

    Although she stepped down as a head coach in 2007, Wilson remained active in volleyball acting as a coach for 6th and 7th-grade girls over the past several years. “I’m a big believer in combining athletics with academics,” the new athletic director said. “As an assistant principal, I know we have many kids who come to school and graduate because they are motivated by an interest in extracurricular activities.  My job is to make sure that academics and athletics compliment each other.

   “It’s my dream job because I’m not interested in sports just because of my kids,” Wilson added. “I love to watch everybody’s kids play sports. Especially Hobbs Eagles sports.”
