Sad news today as I was informed that former six-man coach and TSMCA Hall of Famer Billy Barnett passed away yesterday. He coached the Christoval powerhouse of the late 80s and 90s, as well as at Sands and Dell City and up until his recent retirement had been the Superintendent at Irion County. He was beloved by many of his former players. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.

I will post funeral information once they are made available


Sad to hear. Always enjoyed my time with him. First met him in Big Spring at the Dell City-Panther Creek State Championship in 1993.
