I know it's the wrong time of year to be talking HS football, but our town took a blow last week.

Weatherford's Head Football Coach and AD went to neighboring town of Brock. The move does and doesn't make sense to me.

Weatherford has come miles since Coach Mathis came on board going from 0-10 his first season to back to back playoff appearances the last 2 years.

So who's next for WHS Football?

My pick is Art Briles.

Anyone care to discuss?

Indeed a big blow. My wife teaches in WISD and everyone was shocked. Great score for Brock but a huge loss for the Roos. I don’t think Weatherford will ever be a powerhouse in any sport with Aledo, Brock and Peaster picking up a good chunk of the star athletes. Will be interested to see who the next coach up is.

I can't believe Brock couldn't do better than that.

My daughters participate in football games and their school has been in the playoffs for many consecutive years. My point is, I am at a football game every Friday of the season.

Here is how you win football games

Payoff the UIL

Payoff the officials

Recruit your players

Hire a AD/head coach that’s a great politician

Find new ways to cheat

Want to see some great examples..... go look at the teams with multiple titles in the last couple years/decades

Aledo fans would argue with you...and have a tough case. I grew up in Midland when Permian was a powerhouse, followed by Lee and their 3 year awesome run with Cedric Benson. Recruiting and payoffs are 100% accurate and will always likely go on.

I saw that move and have pretty good insight. It’s my understanding he wants to coach more and manage less.

Mathis seized a great opportunity after his star QB graduated. Brock athletics have been a powerhouse for years in small school UIL. Just like Aledo was and now is. With the growth happening in Parker County Brock will only get better.

I always got a big chuckle how a team with all white boys( and I do mean 100% WHITE) can line up against a team full of college recruits and minority dominate players ......and whoop'em.m

COACHING

This and personal player discipline and buying in and playing as one cohesive unit help too. Southlake Carroll and Austin Westlake have a similar footprint as well..

Truth! I would add since the parents are successful, they do pass their positive work ethics to their children.
