Not official as of yet, but I am anticipating Jake Popham will be leaving Petersburg to take over at Loraine. When I last talked to him, he already had an interview and had been approved by the school board at Loraine. That same day, he received a call from Happy about their HC position. Hopefully in the coming days, I will be able to confirm his next position after speaking with him.

I can confirm, my wife and I have signed contracts with Loraine and I will be taking over AD/Head Football Duties there next year.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to come in and build another successful program. It is my hope that with the hard work and dedication of the boys, we can reestablish the Loraine Bulldogs as a team to contend with very soon.
Loraine ISD is a very good fit for my family and has accepted us with open arms. We are looking forward to being a part of the community very soon and helping them continue to grow in their successes.

Coach Popham, thank you for all you have accomplished for the program in Petersburg. It’s been a few years since we had a coach that led the program to a district championship and a couple playoff runs. The commitment and drive for success you have is admirable and the love for your boys is unmatched. You have touched many hearts in the community of Petersburg and these boys will always hold a place for you in their hearts. I know, because my brother is one of those boys who continually talks nothing but good of you. God Bless you and your family and many of us will continue to keep an eye on your new team. Loraine has a damn good coach and man who knows how to turn a program around. I’ve witnessed this firsthand.

Best Wishes,

Coolidge is in the process of hiring the coach from Crowell.
Crowell is about to be OPEN


So, get ready for Coolidge to start moving up in the six-man world!

Offensively this is a great hire and better than what they've had with the past two coaches.
Defensively he will need to find someone to replace the one leaving for Kress.
Can this be a Nathan Hays and Reece Walker part 2.

With the hiring of Nathan Hays and with the enrollment of his son S. Hays, Coolidge is by far the best team in the East.
With this hire, Coolidge will beat Milford and May

Thank you. My experience at Petersburg was truly awesome; the boys(past & present) learned to trust me and the program grew. I will be forever thankful for everything that the athletes and community did for my family, and allowing me to "rebuild" the program as I saw fit. Its never easy to change things, but the way we handled business day to day showed up on the field, court, track. I will never forget the relationships that I built with the students/athletes, and the love that we developed between us. We truly became family, and achieved great things. We ultimately fell short of some of our goals, but roads to success are often paved in failures. I cannot say enough good things about the families and kids of Petersburg and their dedication, work ethic, patience and will to succeed.
Good luck to Petersburg in its future, and I wish Coach Soliz and his family the best.


Thanks,

Those two kids will not be at Coolidge

1st, The text message I sent said the Hoover kid is still enrolled at Coolidge and has said he is leaving for Mexia. There is no 2nd kid leaving Coolidge unless you are speaking about the Gibson kid, he did leave and is attending a school in Waco.



Kress has hired Brian Cooper Sr. as their Defensive Coordinator, Asst Coach.

Coolidge will move up in the six-man world this year, and may beat May. But no way will they beat Milford.

If I havn't misread my regions, Coolidge, Milford and Union Hill will all have to play each other before getting their shot at May in the semifinals. And quite frankly, some planets will probably need to get in line before May gets to the semifinals. They will need to stay injury free for sure.
