success in Whitehouse football and my goal is to take it further than it has ever been! I can’t wait
to invest my family in the Whitehouse community and I’m eager to get started,” says

Westerberg, his wife Lindsay, and their two daughters Parker and Peyton to the Whitehouse

career. He has helped rebuild the Barber’s Hill football program the past five seasons and we are
excited to have him bring that experience and championship blueprint to our program and as we
strive to build upon the foundation and tradition of DubHouse Football.”
Westerberg’s experience is impressive with more than 14 years in coaching, including previous
stints as the Offensive Coordinator at Allen ISD, winning a state championship, and Offensive

hold his players to high expectations in the classroom. I believe he will be a great fit for
our students, coaches, staff, and community.”

successful. We are hiring a winner and a coach that understands that it is not just about football.
