Coach Brockett was raised in Wallingford, CT and attended Lyman Hall High School where he starred athletically as a three-sport captain. After high school, Tom attended Southern Connecticut State University, graduating with a degree in Physical Education. He continued his education at SCSU and received a Masters in Health Education and a Sixth Year Degree in Educational Foundations. Since graduation Tom has taught Physical Education and Health at Ansonia High School. In addition, Tom has been coaching high school football for 20 years. He began his career as an assistant coach at Lyman Hall High School before moving to Ansonia High School. Tom was named head football coach of Ansonia High School in 2006. In seven years as the head coach, Tom has established himself as one of the most respected coaches in Connecticut. His coaching record speaks for itself at 123-9 with four Class S State Championships including two back-to-back Class S State Championships and two successive #1 state poll rankings in Connecticut; five Naugatuck Valley League (NVL) titles; four undefeated seasons; has coached four Connecticut State Players of the Year. Coach Brockett became only the third coach in Connecticut high school football history to lead a program to back-to-back #1 rankings. Having placed student-athletes at every level of collegiate athletics including Divsions 1A, 1AA, 2, 3 and into the Ivy League, Tom takes great pride in assisting his athletes reach the next level. "It's been very rewarding to see my athletes' dedication in the classroom and on the athletic fields result in college admissions and scholarships. Being a coach of young student-athletes is about much more than what happens on the playing field. It's about motivating and inspiring our athletes to be the best that they can be in all aspects of their lives." When asked about founding the Connecticut Speed School, Tom conveyed that it is a great opportunity to help fill the void of teaching speed in young athletes, which is often overlooked.
