No thanks. HSFB has lost its soul with these generic ISD stadiums, no reason to move a home/home at 2 great HS stadiums.

lolwut?  Westlake's stadium sucks.  It's horrible to get in and out of, and there's not nearly enough parking for a crowd that would show for the Lake Travis game.  The stadium is nothing special, either:

Have not been to LT, but have heard the parking is also inadequate.

Gents. These HFC who make 100K plus a year. What are their typical roles in the school?  GYm teacher?  Sure it’s not just coaching is it?

They're almost always the AD for the school as well. Most of the assistant coaches will coach a secondary sport, and just about all of them will teach a school subject too.

*Just about all the assistants will coach a school subject, to be clear. I've never heard of a head football coach also teaching a subject, at a large school anyway.

Complete pain in the ass to get in/out of but I prefer HSFB to be played on campus.

If you're a 5A or 6A head football coach, you aren't teaching classes.  Unless you're just in a really broke district.

If you're in a district with multiple high schools you'll probably be the "athletic coordinator" at your school which is just a middle man between coaches and ADs. You basically go to other sports games and gather some decisions.

I actually know girls basketball coaches that don't have to teach classes. Some competitive football schools don't even have OC/DCs teach classes

Even at smaller/lower income school districts, a lot of the coaches just coach other sports rather than teach classes. The OC at the HS I attended a while back coached football and had two periods of baseball "offseason" classes for anyone who didn't play football to attend to prep for baseball all year. He was also the head baseball coach. The head coach was "Athletic Director" and in charge of all sports for both sexes.

#ValleyFootballMatters

Some names to remember: Matthew Padilla- Los Fresnos QB, and Jeremy Duran - Mission QB. Both will be sophomores, and both were varsity starting QBs last year as freshmen. I never watched it but Duran is apparently somewhat well known for starring on that “Friday Night Tykes” show years ago. Yeah it’s the valley but to be the starting QB as a freshman on a 6A team is no small feat. They both have some pretty impressive highlight tapes as well. Neither will ever be a college recruit or anything, but look for them to put up Kyler Murray & Landry Gilpin-like numbers by the time they’re juniors and seniors.

Here's Lake Travis' Cavalier Stadium in Lakeway. Parking is limited.

My OC/OL coach was my calculus teacher.  Bet there aren't too many of those in the state.  The rest of our coaches were your typical history/geography/health teachers.

Best Spanish teacher I ever had was a high school tennis coach. Strongest fucking human being I've ever met, too. The football coaches actually asked him to stop working out with the team because he intimidated them. (Spoiler alert: Yes, Kingsville football sucked. There's a reason most A&I players are not from Kingsville.)

Anyway, this tennis coach was also a surfer. Spent his summers in El Salvador, surfing. During the late 70s, early 80s, mind you, when El Salvador was in the middle of a civil war. Crazy son of a bitch was definitely worth getting to know.

Wow. I remember going to a Celina game when I was a kid in the early 90's and seeing a fans' horses tied to the hitching rail outside the stadium. That area of Dallas just continues to grow, grow, grow.

So is visitors seating 

That visitor section is like home side seating in Missouri.  We moved up here a few years back and my kids were not impressed with the high school football stadiums.

Grew up in Longview. Moved to Pennsylvania in 90 after working in zdallas a year and a half.

I only get homesick twice: At Thanksgiving and the first week of HS football. 

Pennsylvania people like to pretend HS football here is a big deal and teams are good. They’re very, very wrong. The best team might hang with Allen but aside from the tip top it’s pure trash.

I wonder how much it's declined with the coal and steel industries.  And of course, HS football now is more than big bohunk linemen and fullbacks.

UIL's been pretty good/strict of denying or making them sit a year on these cases. Demas will lose his appeal next week and likely won't play his Sr year.  Can't imagine a kid not caring about missing that year.

I moved here in 2006, no idea why it changed to 90. Western PA has some good teams but they’d mostly all get their asses mauled by basically any district winner in 2A and up.

That's an interesting thread. Parents were probably concerned about some type of retaliation.

Why the fuck is Plano scheduling an El Paso school in the first place?

It was probably Eastwood that reached out I'm guessing. For the longest time, border schools (valley/laredo/el paso) wouldn't really play anyone from other parts of the state because they're so isolated. Their first taste of non-border competition would come in the form of a playoff buttfucking. Manny Gomez of Harlingen realized the problem and scheduled Abilene for a non-district game in 2011. Harlingen beat them and happened to advance to the state quarterfinals the same year. Since then there's been a notable increase in border schools playing northern schools in non-district play. For example this will be the 2nd year in a row everyone in District 32-6A will play an opponent in District 2-6A. Many El Paso schools have been making long treks across the state to up their level of pre-district competition as well (like EP Montwood playing Smithson Valley a few years back).

Back on topic, this is a pretty stupid move from Plano High. There's been no threats, they were just worried about possible issues. Would've been a great chance for the communities to come together.

Unless I read my DCTF wrong, Eastwood is 5A, and they decide to play one of the biggest schools in the state?

I don't get why this is a problem. The city voted for it, they elected to pay for it. Same with any stadium like Allen.

I still remember walking by Ole Miss' awesome new basketball stadium with one of my brother's friends: "well it'd be nice if they'd have air conditioned the classrooms first..."

Plano v. EP Eastwood has been moved from Kimbrough Stadium to the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, which is the Cowboys HQ.  Wouldn't be surprised if some of the Cowboys brass/players show up to welcome the kids from EP.  Make it a really special game.

On a Thursday.  How many days of school is El Paso going to miss?

Jus Stopped by mt Vernon to watch practice for 15 minutes. State trooper and local pd were there. Both may have a kid playing but it certainly seemed odd.

If a kid's ticket is football, why stop him from transferring to a school that can better achieve his goal? Why force him to stay at a shitty school like North Forest?

The 6-0 vote came from the schools on Tomball’s district.  Either there was evidence of him doing this for athletic purposes, or else six very sorry people in the administration of those six schools.
