David Cook, youngest of 6 children, grew up in Corpus Christi where he graduated from King High School in 1989. The King High School tennis team was coached by Paul Cass, who had one of the more impressive tennis coaching careers a high school coach can have. Coach Cook was blessed to be teammates with some outstanding players including 7 teammates who won state titles in his high school years (Crawford GS 1986, Madry/Cass GD 1986, Peterson/Elias BD 1986, Peterson/Jeff Lim BD 1988) and three other teammates who were nationally ranked (and ranked in the top 5 in the state of their age bracket). Undoubtedly, Coach Cook learned much from these outstanding teammates and his coach. With so many outstanding players on one team, it was no surprise that the King team was able to remain consistently highly ranked in team tennis in UIL (top 5 in 5A in 1987-89) and win its district title consistently (23 years in a row). Coach Cook was proud to serve as a captain of the team his senior year, while playing number 2-3 singles and number 2 doubles lines.
Coach Cook married his wife, Lindsey, in December 2008. Together, they have 2 children, Madison (age 8) and Sam (age 2) and live in Friendswood, Texas, where Lindsey works as a junior high school teacher. He has taught American and World History and World Geography, but enjoys teaching Economics the most. He enjoys all sports as a fan, and participates in golf, bicycling, and jogging as much as possible. In addition to his interest in family, coaching, and sports, Coach Cook enjoys customizing motorcycles and is developing this hobby into a side business.
