He attended Missouri S&T University in Rolla, formerly UMR, on a football scholarship, where he was a four-year letterman as a lineman for the Miners.
After graduation, Webster began his teaching and coaching career at Stockton High School from 2005-2007.
In 2007, Webster was hired at Union High School to teach American history, health and coach football and track.
He has several duties as assistant football coach, offensive and defensive line coach, receiver, linebacker and special teams.
“Coach Webster knows more about the overall Union football program than anyone on the staff,” Eckley said.
Webster also serves on the board on the Union Junior Football League, where he helps run coaching clinics and camps. He also is instrumental in the flag football program and the football website.
