For the first time in school history, La Joya Palmview High School will have a head coach other than Manuel Flores on the sidelines of the Lobos’ football games. Flores was reassigned Monday to the athletic department and Margarito “Mage” Requenez, defensive coach, was named interim head coach.
“The leadership of the Lobo football has changed; however, the Lobo football program still stands strong as our athletes prepare to face the Donna Redskins in this week’s match-up,” said Victor Garza, athletic director, in a statement. “We expect that our coaches make this transition as easy as possible for our athletes.”
In his sixth season with the Lobos, Flores compiled a 16-38-0 overall record and 9-29-0 within the district. After a winless inaugural season in 2008, the Lobos showed steady improvement in the following two seasons with records of 3-7-0 and 5-5-0 in 2009 and 2010, respectively. However Palmview failed to surpass the .500 mark in subsequent seasons going 4-6-0 in 2011 and 2012.
