“Coach V”

Veronica Alejo-Waits, LAT

Veronica Alejo-Waits is beginning her 12th year as an athletic trainer for Lockhart ISD. A graduate of Tarleton State University in 2005, she began her professional athletic training career as the Head Athletic Trainer for an arena football team, the Odessa Roughnecks (IFL, Intense Football League), who captured the Championship title in late 2006. In 2007, she took her first high school job as the assistant athletic trainer at Calhoun County ISD, home of the Fighting Sandcrabs and Sandies.  After a year on the coast, she felt she needed to move inland and found a home in Lockhart, America. “Coach V” enjoys the small-town atmosphere of Lockhart and the close knit family-feel of the community. She is excited and anxious to see the progress of the Lockhart Lions and Lady Lions and is an admirer of the constant hard work and dedication these young men and women put into their sport.
