Troy Mott was a three-sport varsity athlete at Napa High as a member of the football, basketball and baseball teams while also competing on the JV track team in his freshman and sophomore years. Football was Mott’s primary sport and after much success at Napa High, Solano Community College and Wayne State University, he returned to Napa High eventually becoming the head coach of the Varsity, leading them to Napa High’s first Sac-Joaquin Section Football Championship in just his second season at the helm in 2007. As a player at Napa High, the quarterback Mott led the Indians to a 15-3 record over a two-year period before an injury cost him a major part of his senior year. He was a two-year captain of the Indians and graduated with the school record for completions at that time. He had an outstanding career at Solano Community College, where he was elected to their football Hall of Fame, and at Wayne State University, where he set school records for career completions, season completion percentage and career completion percentage. Mott’s basketball career at Napa High as a point guard includes a MEL championship, Honorable Mention All-MEL and All-Napa County selections as well as being named team captain for two years. His high school baseball career was late getting started because of his early years as a high jumper, long jumper and sprinter on the track team but when he turned to baseball, it was as a pitcher and outfielder for the Sac-Joaquin Section Championship baseball team of 1988, earning All-MEL pitching honors in 1989. Mott is another member of the outstanding class of athletes that graduated from Napa High in 1989. His football success at Solano Community College and Wayne State University brought a great deal of recognition and honor to the athletic department of Napa High School.
