He has also coached many standout performers: 3 All SEC & NCAA All-Americans, 4 All Big 12 Performers, 2 National Pro Fastpitch performers, and 3 ASA national qualifier teams.
When applying for the position Sisemore indicated he had a desire to build a national champion team. “I am honored to be a part of such a great atmosphere here at Crowder. When I was given this tremendous opportunity I had no idea what a wonderful welcoming place I was coming to. This has to be the best kept secret in the country! I hope to help continue the winning traditions and hard work ethics that have been instilled by the faculty now and before me. I truly now understand “the Crowder way” and look forward to letting the secret out,” said Sisemore.
