Chris Koetter

Hometown kid, WFHS Coyotes class of '98 and MSU alumn, happily married to Cheryl and proud father to Carson and Cooper. I'm an unabashed sports "homer", always rooting for my Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, and just about all of the other southwest region sports teams. I have been the 106.3 KBZS-FM radio play-by-play for the WFHS Coyotes since 2011, serving as color commentator for the team for a number of years before that. Since 2001, I have served as a sports information assistant at Midwestern State University. The 2013 season marks my 13th year serving the MSU Mustangs athletics teams. Also served as host of Wichita Falls Time Warner Cable's Sports Central for almost 2 years. The local sports scene is a big part of my life and I consider myself lucky to be a small part of it. Hope to see you out at the fields!
