Landon Wren

Coach Landon Wren enters his 3rd year leading the Coppell High School Cross Country program. Coach Wren brings 21 total years of coaching experience. His past coaching experience includes Decatur and Lewisville for track, football, and basketball. His past head coaching experience includes boys' track and field at Decatur. An impressive track of success, Coach Wren posts 4 district championships, 3 regional runner ups, a state third place finish, and numerous kids at the next level. 

As an athlete, Coach Wren was a four-sport athlete in football,  basketball, baseball, and track at Decatur High School. His tremendous accolades include all-district basketball, all-county track, regional qualifier track, and all-county football. He went on to Trinity University earning a history degree later furthering his education with a master’s in teaching. Coach Wren also serves as the head girls’ track and field coach. Away from the course and track, Coach Wren enjoys snow skiing, concerts, and sporting events. His favorite quote, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all that you do and He will guide you” - Proverbs 3:5-6

Coach Wren’s 2022 Cross Country season was impressive with a record setting boys team who finished 3rd in the UIL 6A State Meet. “There are close to 250 schools in the 6A classification and to be one of the best 3 at the end of the season is quite the accomplishment,” said Coach Wren. Led by a strong senior class, Andrew Mullen led the podium finishing seventh overall earning an individual medal; Vedant Bhattacharyya finished next for Coppell at 31st. Other seniors that set the tone last year and will be missed include Samuel Martinson, Cameron Churchill-Dowd, and Kavin Chengavarayan. Strong returners Samarth Dubey and Henry Henze will help with continued excellence. Both boys and girls cross country teams have grown in numbers and look to produce great young talent. 

Coppell ISD Athletics is filled with coaches that care. When asked “Why you coach”, Coach Wren responded  “I don't look at coaching as a job. I look at it as a calling. I coach so that I can lead young men and women on the path to being successful adults”.
