Coaches and Staff
Steve Sisson – Coach and Founder
As one of the founders and brain children of RogueAC, Sisson is now the full-time, dedicated coach of RogueAC. His electric personality, charisma and leadership make him one of the most unique and brilliant coaches in the country, if not the world.
Coming off a highly successful roll as the women’s distance coach at the University of Texas, Steve is thrilled to focus his attention and passion on post-collegiate running exclusively.
And, yes, at one point Steve was a runner. A damn good one too. As a UT student-athlete, Sisson competed from 1989-91 and in 1993. He was a three-time All-American in cross country and track and field, finishing 19th at the 1990 NCAA Cross Country National Championships, third at 5000 meters at the 1993 NCAA indoor meet and fifth in the 10,000 meter run at the 1993 NCAA outdoor event.
In 1993, Sisson represented the United States internationally at both the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Word Half-Marathon Championships in Brussels, Belgium and at the Niagata (Japan) Ekiden Relay. A native of San Antonio, he graduated from Churchill High School where he was the 1988 Texas 5A state champion at 3200 meters (two-mile champion).
Ruth England – Team Manager and Founder
As the other founder and brain children of RogueAC, England is the cog that keeps the engine turning. As the “behind the scenes” specialist, Ruth ensures athletes our athletes do all the little things they need to do to be successful in the sport. Her dedication to the team is unquestioned and her roll makes allow our athletes to focus on what they need to, which is running.
England began her athletic career as a swimmer at the age of 6 and swam in school and on club teams through junior high, high school and into college at The University of Minnesota. Although swimming was her first introduction to sports, she quickly found a love for running. Ruth still enjoys running and participating in marathons personally, but it’s more of a challenge to run them fast nowadays. She continues to find pleasure in being able to spend many Saturday mornings running 24+ miles and maintaining a 70 mile/week training regimen alongside good friends and training partners.
Anthony Ferraro – Strength and Conditioning Coach
Anthony is a trainer and coach certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, USA Track and Field, and the RRCA. He also holds a Masters degree from Texas State University. A life-long athlete, Anthony enjoys running marathons and shorter distance races in Austin and around the world. He has a passion for traveling and enjoys all types of sports and outdoor activities. In addition to training the athletes at Rogue AC, Anthony is a trainer at the University of Texas and also offers private training to athletes in the Austin area.
With RogueAC, Anthony works to adapt traditional strength and conditioning methods with the world of high performance distance running. Through a combination of weight training, range of motion improvements, plyometrics, balance and more, Anthony strives to keep RogueAC healthy and capable of running at the highest level.
