Jamie Rigdon and his sons have made a habit of bouncing between high schools and collecting football championships along the way.

There's also some minor local connections to this story:

Quote

Jamie Rigdon had no intention of staying at Richland Springs beyond that 2019 season despite winning a championship. He became offensive coordinator at an eleven-man school, Class 2A Mount Enterprise in East Texas. But the coach who’d hired Rigdon left before the season began, the new head coach installed a different offense, and Jamie left before the season began for 2A Carlisle High in the nearby town of Price

Grayson was an eighth-grader that year, excelling at eleven-man ball. Jamie said Carlisle coach Rocky Baker said of the youngest Rigdon football player: “He’s going to be special. I promise you.”

Griffin played for Carlisle High but, according to his father, wanted to return to six-man for his senior season. Jamie accepted an offer to join the staff at Strawn.
