Coach Decaire is an '04 Lockport graduate who has returned to LTHS to coach football the last five
seasons. He graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Arts in History
and a minor in Secondary Education. After subbing full-time for two years at Lockport, he got a full-time
job teaching Economics and AP Macro Economics.
Although he never played baseball past little league (you should see him try and hit a fungo!), baseball
has always been his favorite sport to watch. He is a huge White Sox fan (won't hold that against him) and
just an overall avid fan of the game both past and present. While student teaching at Argo Community
High School, he volunteered as a sophomore coach working with the outfielders (they led the team in
errors). He really enjoyed getting to learn the game of baseball from the coaching aspect and look forward
to building on his knowledge working with a great staff and a great baseball program here at LTHS.
Coach Decaire is going on his fourth season with the baseball program and is the Strength &
Conditioning Coach, as well as assisting (is that what you call it?) Coach Dobson with the outfielders. He
is also the official scorekeeper during the varsity games, the self-proclaimed “Best GameChanger in the
STATE!”. He loves getting to research different ways to get our athletes bigger, faster and stronger and
hopes to bring some of those aspects into the baseball program.
Coach Decaire and his wife Julie (poor girl), also a teacher/coach at Lockport, and puppy Bow (named
after Coach Decaire’s beloved Michigan Wolverines legendary coach Bo Schembechler and his favorite
athlete Bo Jackson (anybody tell Decaire he's not spelling it right?). He and Julie will be welcoming a
new addition to their family at the end of the season, their first-a baby boy! GET EXCITED PORTER
NATION BECAUSE ANOTHER DECAIRE IS COMING TO TOWN!!!!
