This week the new Head Athletic Director was announced during the Principal's Coffee. It is our honor to introduce Mr. Michael Matamoros to the Savio community. Mr. Matamoros will be officially welcomed the last week of May.

Michael Matamoros is a graduate of the University of The Incarnate Word, with a B.S. in Kinesiology. For the past 8 years, he has been employed at Santa Clara of Assisi Catholic Academy, a Catholic school in the Diocese of Dallas, as their Physical Education Teacher and Athletic Director. During his time there, he worked to implement change in the way his students and their families viewed fitness. His annual 5K for the Kids is a prime example of just that. For the past year, he has taken on the role of Assistant Marketing Director and has been integral in the development of the new School and Athletic logo, as well as many other facets of Marketing. In addition, he coached Men’s Soccer at Bishop Dunne High School for nine years and helped build a winning program that consistently made and advanced in playoffs, along with having a student-athletes sign with several Universities. Most recently, he decided to continue his love for coaching and soccer by volunteering as a coach for Arsenal FC.

To date, Mr. Matamoros holds his U.S. Soccer National D, E, and F coaching licenses, and will continue to work toward developing his knowledge for Soccer. He is currently enrolled in The University of Notre Dame’s ACE Graduate Program for Inclusive Education. When he is not involved in all things Athletics, he enjoys spending time with his family, including his nieces and nephew, the Cowboys, and being outdoors. 

St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School is located in northwest Austin, Texas, in an active and thriving community. Savio is a college preparatory school, to prepare young men and women to become faith-filled, visionary and inspirational leaders in service to the Church and the world.
