COVID is not nearly as powerful as a group of ticked off board members who are upset about little Johnny not getting to be the QB.

Money isn't everything!! He has a system set up, coaches in place where he wants them. He has built a football factory and has total autonomy. Talking to some of his assistants that coach other sports

Same place isn't it?

I completely agree with you. I know that Coach Turner was in charge of that weight room during Coach Stine’s tenure. They won a State and National Championship in Powerlifting during that time. Stine was hard nosed and pushed those players. They were practiced hard and they played hard. Very tough teams. That’s what has lacked since Graf has been at the helm. Great guy but not one that was hard nosed for he players. The culture changed. Losing became ok. Turner could definitely be that man but that’s also why I mentioned the basketball coach, Coach Hart, from a few years ago. They were tough on the court and were in the weight room more than any basketball team in the area. Finished 3rd and 4th in district his 2 years there when they hadn’t won a district game in a few seasons. He’s young, full of energy, and very well liked and respected by the players. Could be a great hire if given the chance. 

No football experience though.

If a coach likes to be told how to run their program by the parents and certain board members, then Redwater is the place to go! 

What's wrong with that? This sounds like every small East Texas town. Most of the time, the board members are former HS players, and they know what is best for the program.

If they could just find a guy that would do things like they did when they played there! They would be county champs again! Yee Haw!

Talking to some of his assistants that coach other sports, they are happy being assistants and winning. Carthage is a very nice community to raise a family, a good school district and cost of living is pretty low. 

All of us should aspire to be in that kind of situation.

Carthage wasn’t voted “Best Small Town in Texas” for nothing!😋

No he does not have the Head Football or Coordinator experience but does have a lot of knowledge in the game. If I remember correctly he left to go to a bigger school for football. From what I have learned and seen in high school sports, most of the great programs, it’s not always about X’s and O’s but more about the culture that coach builds. Not many programs succeed with bad culture or a weak culture. You can learn X’s and O’s but being the guy those high school kids lean on in time of need, respect, love, and would go through a wall for, those are the coaches that succeed long term. So I don’t look at all the experience. I have seen a lot of coaches with great experience not make it as head coach and ones who don’t have great experience but create a great culture win on and off the field.

Congratulations. You have proven that you are not a small town board member.

Alright... maybe I am a bit confused by your statement. What are you trying to say?? Was there something you disagreed with? Just wanting clarification.

I don’t know that DeKlabBeers has ever made a post that was not satirical or in jest. Lol

If you are speaking of Nathan Turner he was head coach at Waskom for 4 years.

I was referring to Trey Hart. He is on Varsity staff at Princeton in the DFW area now. Nathan Turner did coach at Waskom before coming to Redwater. Couple pretty good season and a couple tough ones. A great coach. I think he has been held back a little bit the last few years because of not wanting to be too tough on the players. Not sure on that but what I have heard. Nathan Turner would be a great hire. Trey Hart maybe long term could be a good one but doesn’t have all the experience. Which is a hold off. Overall good man and good coach.
