Brett Ratliff out as football coach at New Diana...
Thursday, 12th November 2015 - 6:29PM
I spoke with Brett Ratliff this afternoon and he's been reassigned by the superintendent. Obviously, he was disappointed, but he understands the business.
He will remain as the AD until New Diana I.S.D. hires a new head football coach.
Ratilff was 16-26 in four-years with the Eagles, two playoff teams, but 0-10 in 2015.
Smoaky.com Historical Section Update
Wednesday, 19th August 2015 - 6:24PM
As I try and do throughout and after the high school football season, I've updated each program's historical section, including win-loss record, decade record, playoff appearances and individual records.
While it's next to impossible to have everything, it's not from the lack of trying. And, as I've always said, the records section is a constant, "Work In Progress," so if you see something that's incorrect or something that should be added, EMAIL me at [email protected]
or [email protected]
And, here's the link to that section that also includes the latest coaching staff updates:

There are still some programs we're finishing up or haven't heard from so we're working on them too.

Jonathan Jones, who has been on the West Sabine football staff for seven years is now the head football coach for the Tigers. He replaces Tod Stark, who left to become the AD/Head Football Coach at Hardin High School. Stark was 55-32 at West Sabine.
Jones has also been the head track and field coach at West Sabine for the last five years, and defensive coordinator the last four years. He told David Smoak, "I look forward to this opportunity and I believe we'll be a really good football team this season and now it's time to get to work."
Principal Ryan Fuller has taken over as Athletic Director, but will continue his duties at Principal.
