Sanchez leaves Sharyland, reflects on past and future

20120120_Shary_CoachSanchez_010It is hard to say what Fred Sanchez means to Sharyland Football. For the past twelve years Sanchez has worked to turn Sharyland into a powerhouse in the Rio Grande Valley. After numerous bi-district appearances, district championships on the 3A, 4A and 5A levels, the legendary coach decided to end his coaching career to explore other possibilities.

Big Six Friday Game of the Night: Huskies at Patriots

MISSION – Since beginning District 32-4A a dismal 1-3, the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies have since won four of their last Friday. The solid run has put Juarez in a decent position to achieve their first postseason appearance ever.

Contrast that with the Veterans Memorial Patriots. Since starting district play 3-1—including a win over the Huskies—the Patriots have lost five of their last six and, unless they turn things around, are on the verge of missing the postseason for the first time in nine years.
