Former FHC volleyball coach Mark McAfee has been selected for induction into the Missouri High School Volleyball Coaches Association's Hall of Fame. He retired from the Francis Howell School District in 2018 after a long career as a P.E. teacher and coach. 

Coach McAfee had an amazing career as both boys and girls volleyball coach at FHC. He served as the head coach of the boys team for 21 years, starting in 1997. During his tenure, the boys teams won nine GAC Conference titles and two District titles, made three Final Four appearances, and won the Class 4 State Championship in 2012. McAfee was the head coach of the girls team for ten years, and those teams won three GAC Conference titles during that time.

He was a strong advocate for the sport, and FHSD was the first district in the county to add boys volleyball. Now seven GAC schools and eleven schools in St. Charles County compete in the sport. In the more than two decades he dedicated to volleyball and our school, Coach McAfee helped facilitate fifty-seven different volleyball tournaments at FHC.

Coach McAfee will be inducted at the annual MHSVCA Banquet on Sunday, February 23 at Eureka High School. He joins Dan Hogan, a 2013 inductee into the Missouri High School Soccer Coaches Association Hall of Fame, as the only FHC head coaches who have been inducted into their respective sports halls of fame.
