Landon Jackson
Coach of the Year:
Josh Gibson, Head Coach, Pleasant Grove

If you turn in any direction from Pleasant Grove High School you can find a football program that’s probably won a state championship, in fact, East Texas has a massive list of state champions in every classification. And, now, the Hawks can look in the mirror after they captured the Class 4-A, Division II State Championship with a 41-21 win over two-time defending champion West Orange-Stark. Up until 2017, the Pleasant Grove football program hadn’t won more then ten games in a season, (10) in 2010 under then head coach Kevin Davis. And, when Josh Gibson arrived as head coach in 2014, there was work to do, the Hawks had a combined five wins the previous three years. Under Gibson, Pleasant Grove made the playoffs three-consecutive years with their seasons ending with losses to statewide brand-names, Gilmer (twice) and Celina. But, you could tell the Hawks were getting better and gaining more confidence. And, that was never more evident than during the 2017 season that included a district win at Gilmer and a playoff win against Celina on their way to the Class 4-A, Division II championship.
