Steve Nelms(’15) named Carson High track coach

Steve Nelms, an assistant coach on the Carson High football team, has been named the school’s new head track coach.

Nelms ran track and played football at Elko High and University of Jamestown.

Nelms currently teaches physical education at Carson Middle School. He said he’s looking forward to his new opportunity. He coached track at Spring Creek High School for two years.

“I’m excited,” Nelms said recently. “This is a great opportunity for me to build on what coach (Robert) Maw started. Track has been a big part of my life. I have a great passion for it. It is a sport where everybody can have success because you are running against the clock and trying to get better.

Blair Roman, CHS athletic director, is happy to have him aboard.

“Steve is an outstanding young coach who is wise beyond his years,” said Roman. “He has a good perspective on track and how to keep the program competitive like it’s been, and he’ll put his own tweaks on the program.”

Nelms said he’s starting to work on the schedule. Carson is hosting six or seven meets this year, including the regional and state events. He said getting parent and/or community volunteers is critical to the success of hosting meets.

Nelms said he would love to get moved over to the high school. Veteran basketball coach Carlos Mendeguia is retiring after the 2018-19 school year, and that would open up a physical education position.

Nelms earned his Bachelor of Arts from UJ in 2015, majoring in Physical Education/Teacher Education.
