Jason Holcomb is the new AD/Head Football Coach at Sealy High School and for him, it's a chance of a lifetime, "Well, it's a great opportunity and they have great tradition here at Sealy and we're going to come in here and give it our best shot."
Holcomb, who was 109-50 in 13-years as AD/Football Coach at Lexington also mentioned his former school is in good hands with the promotion of defensive coordinator Kirk Muhl to lead the Eagles, "Coach Muhl is more than ready for that job, Lexington football will be in good hands."
Holcomb also reflected back on his career at Lexington that included a trip to the Class 2-A State Championship Game in 2010, a 20-3 loss to Idalou and three other trips to the semifinals, "It was a super time in my life, my kids grew up there, we were able to have a lot of success, kids were just fantastic and worked extremely hard, nothing but fond memories."
Holcomb, who was also an assistant coach at Mart, replaces Jimmie Mitchell who left to coach at Beeville Jones. Mitchell was 48-19 at Sealy.
Sealy was the first program to win four consecutive state championships from 1994-1997, but finished 6-4 in 2012. Sealy also won a state championship in 1978.
