Mike Helmer

Varsity Head Coach

Head Coach Mike Helmer joined the Northside Lions organization in 2020. Coach Helmer enjoys teaching young men God’s truth and uses football as the tool to accomplish that. Coaching has been a ministry for him to spread the Gospel for over 25 years. Most of his coaching experience was in the Dallas area where he was fortunate enough to coach in 10 TAPPS state championship games being able to win 3 of them. Coach Helmer, after being an athletic director, teacher and coach for many years went into the business world two years ago.

His company (Game On!) transferred him to Houston in July 2019 and he currently lives in Spring with his wife Betty and stepdaughters, Jackie and Itzel. Coach Helmer has a daughter, Melody, who lives in Dallas and son, Mason, who is a student at Texas Tech. In 2021, Coach Helmer led the Lions to the TAIAO State Championship. His experience and knowledge of football and the college recruitment process will help the Northside Lions organization reach a level of excellence.

​Mike has a Bachelor of Biblical Studies and Minored in Coaching Techniques of Football from Trinity Bible College.
