Goya named cross country head coach

Rome High School is pleased to name Luis Goya head coach of the cross country program.


Goya, who teaches Coordinate Algebra to freshmen at RHS, has served as assistant coach for his wife LeAnn at Rome Middle School for the past four years.  Last season, he also coached the RMS boys’ soccer team.  Next year, Goya will also be the RHS boys’ soccer assistant coach.


Goya has gained extensive experience in distance running since coming to the United States in 2007.  He has worked his way up from running in 5K races to 10K and then half marathons.  In 2009, he ran his first full-length marathon in Big Sur, California.  From there, he ran the Jacksonville Bank Marathon in Florida, which qualified him for the famed Boston Marathon in 2014, the year after the tragic bombing.


“Running has become a passion, and I believe it is going to be a while and several miles until I put my running shoes up,” said Goya.  “I hope to share my passion for this sport to the cross country team.  I am determined to get the best out of the runners.  By being the head coach of such a prestigious team, I will do my best to help grow each of these runners and help them achieve their goals and run their best this season.”


Goya identified developing individual running plans for team members as a top priority.  Each of those goals will also be in line with the comprehensive team plan.  Any students interested in running cross country should contact Coach Goya in Room M-11 or by email at logoya@rcs.rome.ga.us.


A native of Guayaquil, Ecuador, Goya is married to the former LeAnn Matthews of Rome.  They have a three-year-old daughter named Stella.
