At first glance, the La Joya Coyotes had an extremely disappointing 2013 season. With their only win being a non-district 64-0 thrashing of Brownsville Porter, the Coyotes went on to lose eight straight games en route to a 1-9 season.
While it has been said that numbers never lie, they can be deceptive. And according to La Joya head football coach George Espinoza that is the case when it comes to the team’s 2013 record.
“Last year we knew going into the season that we were very young,” explained Espinoza. “Therefore as a staff we decided that what we needed to do was to give our young players some experience. We had a lot of sophomores that got thrown into the mix right away and they had to grow up.”
