New assistant athletic director Doug Schornick takes a cell phone picture of the St. Xavier field Friday night in Cincinnati. Schornick is in his 13th season of helping with high school sports.

Doug Schornick is excited about his new opportunity.

“I am very excited about being a Giant,” Schornick said. “And learning the Wayne way.”

Schornick is our new assistant athletic director. He was born in Osgood, Indiana, a small town he refers to as “God’s Country” located in the southeastern part of Indiana.

Schornick attended Jac-Cen-Del High School, where he played basketball, baseball, and ran cross country. The high school was too small to have a football team so he could not play football during high school.

Schornick is married to a supportive wife, Megan. They have three children, daughter Mattie, 14 and two sons Carson, 10 and Tucker, 6.

This is Shornick’s 13th year as an athletic director. The start of his career was in 2000, at Knightstown High School.

He became an athletic director because he enjoyed being around high school athletic programs.

“It just made sense to be that more involved,” Schornick said.

To Schornick, he doesn’t consider being an athletic director a job, but more of a passion. He likes building relationships with coaches and athletes.

“This is more fun to me then anything,” he said. “I just enjoy being around high school sports.”
