As a star player from powerhouse Jack Yates High School in Houston, Texas, Pierce went on to earn four varsity letters for the Bears from 1988-1991. A vital member of legendary Coach Grant Teaff’s squads in the late 80’s and early 90’s, Pierce quickly earned a starting spot at tight end and helped lead the Bears to the 1991 Copper Bowl.
That same year, Pierce received the coveted David Award, given to the team member who overcame significant adversity during their career at Baylor. Following the ’91 season, Pierce earned All-Southwest Conference honors, and he was named to the Hula Bowl All-Star Team. After leaving Baylor, he spent a short time in the NFL as a free agent with the Houston Oilers.
Today, Pierce is the Chairman/President of ISW Holdings, Inc., in Houston. He has assisted in sourcing funding for multiple charitable foundation boards, and he recently earned his Certificate of Christian Foundation from the George W. Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor.
