Mr. Derrek Fikes

My name is Derrek Fikes. I grew up in Marion Couny in Northwest Alabama. I attended the University of North Alabama and received my BS degree in Secondary Education. I then graduated from Mississippi State University with my Master's degree in Sport Administration. I was blessed to be able to do an internship with the Mississippi State Athletic Department under current University of Alabama Athletic Director Greg Byrne as well as the current AD of University of Florida Scott Stricklin.

I have been blessed to be able to teach and coach since 2010. During that time, I have been a part of great athletic teams as well as great academic institutions. I feel honored to be a part of the Thompson family!
