Coach of the Year:
Chris Cochran, Lindale

The former Eagles defensive coordinator led the program to their first state championship game appearance in his fourth year as head coach. In fact, until this season the Eagles football program had never played past the second round of the playoffs, but that all changed during 2020. Lindale started 2-2 with two early losses to Midlothian Heritage and Gilmer but reeled off 11 consecutive wins before the state final, including a dramatic comeback win over Austin L.B.J. High. The Eagles lost the next week in the state championship game to unbeaten and perennial power Argyle, but it did not sour an otherwise exhilarating season.
